"When I think of 3D printers, I am instantly taken back to the days of watching George Jetson: Imagine pressing a button and opening a magic door to exactly what you had asked for. While 3D printing technology seems frighteningly close to that futuristic memory, the truth is, there is HUGE potential for 3D printing to impact math education in a variety of ways."

What's Your Hurry? 3 Reasons Slow Math is Best  Brilliant or Insane  2 views

"As both a teacher and administrator, I often heard from parents whose children were exceptionally good at math. "My daughter already knows how to multiply fourdigit numbers, so third grade math is too easy for her. She needs to be accelerated."
There's lots of research to support acceleration as a strategy for gifted learners. The Acceleration Institute, part of the BelinBlank Center at the University of Iowa, recently produced a report entitled "A Nation Empowered" which details the enormous benefits to accelerating a student when he or she is performing well above grade level.
Researcher Jonathan Wei of Duke University says, "All students deserve to learn something new each day." In math, the obvious way to learn something new is to accelerate the instruction, letting the student go on to the next topic or grade level. But "learn something new" is not the same as "learn the next thing on the district's scope and sequence.""
Worksheets don't Work: Try ReggioInspired Mathematics!  Technology Rich Inquiry Based...  4 views

I learned about the math kits from the book, ReggioInspired 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 yintercept of the line represents the object's position."

10 HandsOn 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 handson 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 predesigned 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  3 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."
