Math Coach's Corner: Developing Fraction Sense  0 views

"'ve been reading a powerful new resource titled Beyond Pizzas & Pies, by Julie McNamara and Meghan M. Shaughnessy. They describe fraction sense this way:
Fraction sense implies a deep and flexible understanding of fractions that is not dependent on any one context or type of problem. Fraction sense is tied to common sense: Students with fraction sense can reason about fractions and don't apply rules and procedures blindly; nor do they give nonsensical answers to problems involving fractions."

Relevant Math For Students' Lives: Creating Context With Social Justice Issues  MindShift  3 views

"Perhaps one of the most common questions teachers hear from students who struggle with math is, "When will I ever need this in the real world?" Concepts educators are covering can often feel archaic and remote from the things students care about in their immediate lives. But when educators think creatively about helping students see the applications of math in the real world, it provides a unique point of entry and interest into a subject that many kids may dislike."
Baseball in the Math Classroom  Class Tech Tips  0 views

"Using topics that children are naturally excited about is a great way to grab their attention across the content areas. When it comes to sports, there are a few iPad apps that I love including the fantastic MLB.com At Bat. You can ask students to write their own math problems using data they find within the app or assign each student a different team or player to create a graph of different stats. This app asks you to subscribe for extra features but after you decline this option you can access all of the data you'll need for math projects!"
The Land of Venn : A Math Game to Enhance Kids Geometric Skills  2 views

"The Land of Venn is an ingenious geometry game that aligns learning to fun. It smartly avoids being "edutainment" by putting play first. It is a universal mobile application in which you draw lines and shapes to learn about lines and shapes. The narrative, which is silly and amusing (as is the catchy music), is a tower defense game.
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."

"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."
