Why Learn It? Informing, Engaging, and Inspiring the next generation of students throug... - 7 views

  •  
    "Why Learn It (WLI) aims to address the issue of motivation around learning math by helping students
    explore the beauty and relevance of what they would otherwise dismiss as inconsequential in school.
    Targeting late middle-school and early high-school students, WLI takes a hybrid approach to cultivat-
    ing motivation. It leverages the engagement value of short (approximately three-minute long) videos
    depicting real people talking about how math and computational thinking are critical to their successes
    in a number of professional areas. Students then complete a series of interactive exercises that help
    students explore an application area discussed in the video in more detail. These exercises, however,
    are not simply drill problems aimed at making students experts in a particular content area. Instead,
    they are multi-step assignments that require the students to draw upon both detailed mathematical
    knowledge and a big picture view of how this knowledge can be used to draw useful, meaningful
    conclusions. The exercises are focused on bridging the worlds of number, images, and sounds in or-
    der to help students build intuition around a particular topic. Therefore, while some questions have
    objectively correct responses, others require students to gather knowledge they have built through
    answering previous questions within the packet to draw new inferences. Hints are provided along the
    1
    way to ensure students receive assistance when necessary. Finally, WLI is housed online and is oered
    for free, signifying minimal barriers to usage by educators and students."

MIT + K12 - 4 views

  •  
    "In December, 2011, Ian Waitz, MIT's Dean of Engineering, launched the MIT-K12 project, driven by a series of questions: How can we change the perception of the role of engineers and scientists in the world? What can MIT do, right now, to improve STEM education at the K12 level? What if MIT became a publicly accessible "experiential partner" to the country's K12 educators? What if MIT students generated short-form videos to complement the work those educators are already doing in their classrooms and homes?"

The 'perfect chaos' of π - 9 views

  •  
    "π has fascinated mathematicians, engineers and other people for centuries. It is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle's circumference (C) to its diameter (d); This also explains why and how this number got its name: the lowercase π was first adopted in 1706 as an abbreviation for this number because it is the first letter of the Greek for "perimeter", specifically of a circle." Introduces a video by Numberphile explaining more about the determination of π

    "The open repository of interactive high school lesson video modules sponsored by MIT's Learning International Networks Consortium (LINC) has unveiled an updated website.
    Every lesson, filmed in high school classrooms from Brooklyn to Beirut to Bangalore, is still a complete resource that includes video segments, a teacher's guide, downloadable hand-outs, and a list of additional online resources relevant to the topic.
    Since first appearing in these pages six months ago, the library of videos has grown to over 50 math and science lessons, all freely available to teachers as streaming video, Internet downloads, DVDs, and videotapes."
