Worksheets don't Work: Try Reggio-Inspired Mathematics! | Technology Rich Inquiry Based... - 1 views

  • I learned about the math kits from the book, Reggio-Inspired Mathematics and grateful for the power of Twitter and the opportunity to directly connect with Janice. I asked and she kindly sent the list of materials for each kit. I will be putting together a set of math kits and sharing with my students the three formats for mathematical provocations. As described by Gandini (1998) provocation is something arriving by surprise. Provocation is a means for provoking further action. I like that the book links provocations and invitations as one in the same responding to the question about “what’s the difference” that I hear so often. Let’s get beyond trying to define them so discreetly and get onto the task of creating them in multiple formats.

Action Graphing: Math & Physics iPad App | Class Tech Tips - 1 views

  •  
    "Gamification is a powerful way to engage students in the science and math classroom. The Universe and More, a nonprofit company founded by a high school teacher, has released a new game called Action Graphing. This iPad app helps students understand key concepts related to graphing.  Students will learn how to analyze and interpret graphs to model the motion of real objects.  They'll see how the slope of the line represents an object's velocity and the y-intercept of the line represents the object's position."

10 Hands-On Strategies for Teaching Area and Perimeter | Scholastic.com - 1 views

  •  
    "very year, many of my students seem to have difficulty grasping the idea of perimeter and area. I've found that the best way to help students learn the difference between the two while figuring out how to properly calculate each is to have them engage in several different hands-on activities. This week I'll share with you how I introduce these important measurement concepts separately, then reinforce them with engaging cumulative activities that emphasize both area and perimeter."

Teaching with Sphero the Robot in Math, Science, and Beyond - Daily Genius - 4 views

  •  
    "
    As someone who primarily taught math and science when I was a classroom teacher, I associated robots, robotics curriculum, and robot apps as things that were only used in those subjects. However, this past year my school received a robot grant that provided ten robots for us from the company Sphero. Sphero emphasizes the power of play in education and has a variety of lessons that are aligned to the Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards on their website. They also have a number of STEM challenges in the form pre-designed engineering projects designed for collaborative group work with students and are helpful for teachers using the robots in their classes."

5 Strategies for Using Flipped Learning in Math - 2 views

  •  
    "When using a concept for flipped learning in math, it is important to understand how it will enrich your students. Although a traditional learning component is an essential part of making this work, there are a number of ways to integrate technology and modern teaching methods into any math classroom that will be beneficial to both the teacher and students."

6 Free Android Math Apps to Help You Survive Math Class - 0 views

  •  
    "Do you want to be an astronaut? You'll need strong math skills. How about a scientist? An engineer? An accountant? A meteorologist? All of these careers - and a lot more - will require you to have an excellent mathematical ability.

    Jobs that are in some way linked to math typically pay more, are better for your brain, and have fewer potential applicants.

    There's just one problem: for the vast majority of children at school and students at university, math is a) very hard, and b) very boring.

    So, what to do? Fear not! Android to the rescue! Here are some of the best free Android math apps (Android math games exist too!) to help you survive math class."

Advantages in Coding, Part 1: An Application of Math | My Experiments in Teaching and L... - 2 views

  •  
    "Many teachers are starting to code in math classrooms.  I have integrated coding in math initially to start a coding club.  I soon realized that coding is best suited as an option in learning.  There are many benefits to coding that I have found.  The benefits are too extensive for one blog post.  So I am starting a series of blogs to emphasize the advantages.

    For my first post, I would like to highlight that coding is an excellent application of math skills.  All math can be applied to daily life.  As teachers, we have to apply learning so that our students see relevance.  Coding applies so beautifully to math.  It emphasizes these skills so naturally."

What is MakerEd? And why math teachers should take notice… | Valerie Weage's ... - 1 views

  •  
    "As I look back, it has been a crazy and wonderful learning experience in CEP 811 over the last few weeks. With a focus on the Maker Movement and maker education, I have read articles, blog posts, sections from books, and even watched videos to learn more about the Maker Movement. I even had a chance to try my hand at making by creating a Lego robot using the NXT program and then turning my project into a great lesson about slope I can use with my math students. In addition, I considered what inspires a maker and how I might be able to turn my own classroom into an inspirational and supportive makerspace.

    This week, I organized all of the ideas I have gathered about the maker movement and maker education into a helpful infographic using easel.ly that addresses two important questions: What is the Make Movement? Why should math teachers start incorporating it into their classrooms? "

5 principles of extraordinary math teaching | math for love - 8 views

  •  
    "We're just finishing up a massive project of creating a supplementary curriculum for Seattle's Summer School program. We realized that the spirit of the lessons was even more important than the content. To this end, we designed the activities to encourage students to own their mathematical experiences, to give kids an opportunity-and a reason-to fall in love with math.

    So we introduce our lessons with this list of the 5 principles that you can use in your math teaching to make the classroom hum. We wanted to share the list here, even though school is almost out. Let us know if these principles speak to you, and if there's anything you think we're missing."

Makey Makey Math - Coding Probability Simulators #makerED | Brian Aspinall, CV - 2 views

  •  
    "As I gear up to present student work at ETFO's ICT Conference in Toronto, I'd like to share some ideas:

    1. Coding allows for students to learn across math strands instead of in isolation.

    2. Coding is a place for students to fail safely.

    3. Coding allows students to take risks and solve problems.

    4. Computational thinking is a form of problem solving not accomplished with textbook work.

    5. "Making" is creative. Creativity is fun.

    Here is a student application coded to support our Grade 8 probability strand. We extended our projects with Makey Makeys so users had a physical interaction."

These cups should have a place in any classroom! Making the ordinary extraordinary! - 3 views

  •  
    "Making the ordinary extraordinary… This picture was one I picked up a couple of years ago on Twitter and it sparked a creative note. Having experimented with the approach to place value and reading numbers in this way it has very good effect. Especially when the students make the tool themselves. Younger students can get to grips with the position of numbers and the zeros prompt them to say the correct magnitude if they are a little unsure. You could write the words too underneath the numbers if necessary. Its a lovely class project for year 3 and 4 and it's cheap too. It is also great for intervention at a later stage, with older students."
