Learn Coding, 21st Century Fluencies and The Mathematical Process With Robot School  1 views

"In this article I would like to explore a new coding app called Robot School from Next is Great (@nextisgreat). What hooked me immediately was how this app teachings kids to block code, but then shows them the syntax written in Swift. If you are unfamiliar, Swift is a new programming language for iOS. I love the concept of block code and syntax. It's a perfect next step for avid coders."
Mathspace: StepbyStep Math Handwriting for iPad  Class Tech Tips  0 views

"Students can now show every line of their math work on iPad and other tablets, writing all their steps by hand on screen. Mathspace digitizes each handwritten line and grades it automatically, giving students immediate, formative feedback at every step of the way  like having a teacher at their side. This is a huge step forward from multiple choice or singleinput response math questions that most students and teachers are used to seeing on digital platforms."
Free Technology for Teachers: More Fun With Math in Pictures  5 views

Shout out to Andy McKiel and Zoe Bettess' grade 3 Math class in this post!
"I love Instagram because it prompts me to take and share pictures of things that I might otherwise glance at then forget about. Before cell phones entered my life I rarely took pictures. Last week I took the picture that you see below. Almost as soon as it appeared in my Facebook feed via Instagram, my friend Kelly commented with, "shouldn't they be more concerned about weight than the number of people?" Kelly is a middle school math teacher so this picture was right in her wheelhouse of math prompts. (If you want to use the picture as a math prompt, you are welcome to download it)."

How Elementary School Teachers' Biases Can Discourage Girls From Math and Science  NYT...  0 views

"We know that women are underrepresented in math and science jobs. What we don't know is why it happens.
There are various theories, and many of them focus on childhood. Parents and toymakers discourage girls from studying math and science. So do their teachers. Girls lack role models in those fields, and grow up believing they wouldn't do well in them.
All these factors surely play some role. A new study points to the influence of teachers' unconscious biases, but it also highlights how powerful a little encouragement can be. Early educational experiences have a quantifiable effect on the math and science courses the students choose later, and eventually the jobs they get and the wages they earn."

Mrs. Obach's Class Blog: Math Discovery Makes a Comeback!  0 views

"After some successful science discovery time last week, I was encouraged and motivated to reintroduce math discovery in my classroom. Discovery learning was an effective approach for me last year and I developed/sourced a number of discovery tub ideas (which I've pinned here). Many of last year's discovery tubs focused on math learning and I knew that discovery time was valuable for developing students' numeracy skills. So, when students asked me about "putting numbers on the learning carpet", I decided it was time to get back to math discovery in our classroom. "

By performing the actions of geometry, players internalize the concepts. It is a clear example of constructivist learninglearning by doing. For example, children connect points (each point is a different enemy) to draw an isosceles triangle. As a result, confidence in abstract mathematical concepts is built as mastery of levels is met."
