4 Tools to Connect Students to Real World Math  Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad  CCSS,...  4 views

"One of the challenges we face as educators is providing students with opportunities to engage in meaningful learning experiences that show them how they can connect the knowledge and skills learned in school to the real world. This is particularly true in the area of traditional math instruction if most of the time spent is focused on solving a set of problems in a textbook."

"STEM education is "an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with realworld lessons as students apply Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy. (Tsupros, Kohler, & Hallinen, 2009)
Not coincidentally, several other trends in learningfrom mobile learning and tablets in the classroom, to personalized learning and adaptive learning appsare all at least somewhat connected to STEM education, which makes the following collection of STEM iPad apps for learning from Listly user Randy Yerrick helpful."
What projectbased learning looks like in maths  6 views

"I wish geometry was taught in this way when I was in school.
Curriki's new Projectbased Learning (PBL) high school Geometry course is now available. For so many students, it's difficult to make a reallife connection between math and their everyday lives. By adopting a ProjectBased Learning (PBL) approach, students learn that geometry is not only theoretical, but practical and necessary. Students will move beyond a basic understanding of concepts to an enjoyment of discovery.
This free Geometry course not only leverages the popular PBL "active" approach but is also aligned to Common Core State Standards. Thom Markham, Ph.D., President of PBL International, is the designer of the course. He notes that ProjectBased Learning points us toward the future of education. "It's a proven method for integrating the 21st century skills of communication and teamwork into the delivery of core subjects.""
Stella's Problems  0 views

"Welcome to the ORC Stella website. The core of this collection is a library of more than 600 nonroutine mathematics problems known as Stella's Stunners to be launched set by set over the coming months. The problems range from simple visual problems, requiring no specific mathematical background, to problems that use the content of PreAlgebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and Trigonometry, up through PreCalculus.
The Stella problems are not typical textbook exercises. They are considered "nonroutine" problems because the methods of attacking them are not immediately obvious. Because these problems can supplement and enliven traditional mathematics courses in a variety of ways, we have included materials to assist in using Stella problems in your teaching: "
