### Federal Reserve Economic Data - FRED - St. Louis Fed- 6 views

•
Want to let students explore with real data then welcome to FRED® (Federal Reserve Economic Data), a database of 25,176 U.S. economic time series. With FRED® you can download data in Microsoft Excel and text formats and view charts of data series. Students can explore data, create models & hypothesis, and test their models as the year progresses. If their models aren't working they can go back to their original data set and make changes based on what they've learned and see how those predictions work on new data. The best part is the variety of data that is available.  We plan to continually improve FRED® and encourage you to send feedback through our contact form.

### Thinking Blocks - Model and Solve Math Word Problems- 22 views

•
This tool enables K-6 students to build visual models of word problems. There are hundreds of built-in math problems covering thirty-six different categories. Videos explain how to model each problem type. The full screen feature makes this application compatible with interactive white boards.

This is an incredible collection!!!

### Conceptua™ Math- 14 views

•
Nice set of applets that let students explore fraction understanding from multiple perspectives and models. I love that they use a variety of models for fractional development, including bars (multiple versions), sets, and linear. From the site:  "Why Fractions? Fractions are one of the earliest stumbling blocks for students in math. Our goal is building conceptual understanding in fractions as a basis for comprehension in all later topics."

### Illuminations: Using Graphs, Equations, and Tables to Investigate the Elimination of Me...- 2 views

•
Great set of lessons for modeling, recursive functions, real-life application from NCTM Illuminations. The lessons include not only context, but applets that help students visualize the situation and  mathematical model.

### The Numbers - Weekend Box Office Chart- 4 views

•
Movie box office data that is current and very comprehensive. Several different trends are easy to track including exponential, and log functions. Great for using with students to create regression models, making predictions based on the models, checking the results and re-analyzing. Also, when a movie doesn't follow the predictions there are often easy to understand reasons for why the movies behave differently (a holiday weekend may cause the movie to gross more on a given weekend than predicted, etc.)

### Center for Technology and Teacher Education || Macromedia Flash Activities- 17 views

•
Some great applets for use with math classes. From basic arithmetic modeling to modeling of integrals. From the University of Virginia these flash based apps will work on almost any platform except the iPod system (currently).

### A Competitive Study towards the impact of educational games on the Student Motivation a...- 6 views

(Self-directed-Learning) "SDL model for planning, managing, and directing the development of student progress when using the educational games while learning math."

### The 3 Teenage Girls Who Won the Google Science Fair Speak at TEDx- 6 views

•
Includes Naomi Shah who devised a mathematical model depicting air pollution's effect on asthmatics (10:24), all worth watching

### Mathematical Model Could Help Predict and Prevent Future Extinctions - US National Scie...- 7 views

•
Northwestern University scientists created a model to explore food web dynamics towards species conservation. "The goal of this project, funded by the National Science Foundation's Division of Mathematical Sciences, is to develop mathematical methods to study dynamical processes in complex networks. Although the specific application mentioned here may be useful in management of ecosystems, the mathematical foundation underlying the analysis is much more universal. The broad concept is innovative in the area of complex networks because it concludes that large-scale failures can be avoided by focusing on preventing the waves of failure that follow the initial event."

### Implementing Multi - Tiered Systems of Support in Mathematics: Findings from Two Schools- 5 views

•
Abstract: "This study examined the benefits and challenges associated with implementing RtI [Response to Intervention] in the area of math ematics in an elementary and a middle school in a rural district in the northeastern United States. We sought to document the ways in which two schools approached implementation of RtI and to explore the issues they encountered with respect to instruction , intervention, and assessment. Five themes were identified that described implementation of the RtI framework: Shifting roles and changing structures, increasing opportunities for collaboration and communication, inc reasing instruction al an d assessment su pport for students who struggle in math, increasing knowledge of support strategies for learners who struggle with math, and "spreading the word" and enhancing the use of the model. The results of this study suggest that the RtI model has potential to impr ove how math instruction is approached in elementary and middle schools. "

### Resources optimization in (video) games: a novel approach to teach applied mathematics?- 2 views

•
Abstract: "In spite of the efficacy of Operations Research (OR), its tools are still underused, due to the difficulties that people experience when describing a problem through a mathematical model. For this reason, teaching how to approach and model complex problems is still an open issue. A strong relation exists between (video) games and learning: for this reason we explore to which extent (real time) simulation video games could be envisaged to be an innovative, stimulating and compelling approach to teach OR techniques."

### NURTURING CREATIVITY IN MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS: A CHALLENGING SITUA...- 5 views

•
From the abstract: "Studies on creative mathematics conducted in the past decades revealed that the importance of creation of learning and teaching environment favourable to the identification and nurturing creativity in mathematics. Based on psychological, methodological and didactical models created by Krutetskii (2006), Shchedrovtiskii (2008), Brousseau (2007) and Sierpinska (2004), we have developed our challenging situation approach. During 5 years of field study in the elementary grade VII classroom, we collected sufficient amount of data that demonstrate how these challenging situations help to discover and to boost mathematical creativity in very young children, keeping and increasing their interest towards more advanced mathematics curriculum. This article is an humble attempt to present our model and illustrate how it works in the mixedability classroom. We will also discuss different roles that teachers and students might play in this kind of environment and how each side could benefit from it."

### Welcome to the mathtwitterblogosphere - Home- 14 views

•
Curious how social media might benefit you as a math teacher? Check out mathtwitterblogosphere, which encourages math teachers to tweet and blog in order to "get your own creative juices flowing" and participate in a "world-class faculty lounge with colleagues who care about what they do." Come see profiles of math teachers who use blogs and Twitter, learn about "how to take the leap" with those social media, and find recommendations of tweeps and bloggers to follow, categorized by academic level, or interests such as arts and craft in the math classroom games and gamification in math interdisciplinary Work modeling approach to teaching standard-based grading projects and rich tasks technology in the math classroom

### Kill Math- 12 views

•
"Kill Math is my umbrella project for techniques that enable people to model and solve meaningful problems of quantity using concrete representations and intuition-guided exploration. In the long term, I hope to develop a widely-usable, insight-generating alternative to symbolic math."

### WhyLearn.it- 0 views

I know that this was already shared with the math group, but this is to the main site. Not just the PDF file. These are videos to help put reasons behind why we would learn math concepts and what are they related to. I think they can also serve as a good model for student math projects.
