IMS Guidelines for Developing Accessible Learning Applications - 0 views

  •  
    "The challenge of presenting alternative "views" of symbolic and semantic content makes up the leading edge of accessibility research today and many problems have yet to be solved. This document presents an overview of approaches currently in development or in use in fields such as: Mathematics Sciences Simulations and immersion Robots and telepresence Charts, diagrams, and tables Geography and maps Music Languages"

    "PhotoMath reads and solves mathematical problems by using the camera of your mobile device in real time. It makes math easy and simple by educating users how to solve math problems."

Origins of Game Theory - 0 views

  •  
    "Mathematicians attempt to analyze types of interactions by treating them as games in which players use strategies to obtain payoffs. Games like checkers and chess are games of perfect information; the board shows both players all the information needed to make the right decision. Games like poker are games of imperfect information; no player has enough information (the other players' cards are hidden) to make a guaranteed right decision."

4+1 Interview: Gavin LaRose - 0 views

  •  
    I am increasingly of the opinion that we don't have to find "the solution" to "this problem." The question of what students are learning and how they have created the work that they submit is one that is as old as teaching, and the change in technology in many respects introduces only an incremental change in how we must approach this. If we are to be effective as instructors we have to be thinking hard about what students know and how we know it, and these are not things that are dependent on technology.

Canvas Guides for Math and Chemistry - 0 views

  •  
    "For those of you gearing up for the Fall Semester, I want to make sure that you know that (1) Canvas upgraded the math editor recently and there is a lot of new functionality available and (2) there are print-friendly guides for using the Canvas Equation Editor. You can include these in your syllabus or as handouts if you are planning to do some intensive Canvas stuff with equations in the fall."

What's different about the inverted classroom? - 0 views

  •  
    the inverted classroom places a lot of intentional structure on the out-of-class experience. We don't just hand students a book or a PDF or a bunch of videos and say, Read/Watch these and then we'll discuss them in class. The out-of-class experience for students in a flipped classroom is structured.

How Big Data Is Taking Teachers Out of the Lecturing Business - 0 views

  •  
    "At the end of the term, Hawkins will have completed the last college math class she will probably ever have to take. She will think back on this data-driven course model-so new and controversial right now-as the "normal" college experience. "Do we even have regular math classes here?" she asks."

Inside the inverted proofs class: Why I did it - 0 views

  •  
    after teaching the class once and seeing the historical grade distribution instantiate itself, it seemed to me that if I wanted to do something about this acculturation problem, I needed to do three things that weren't happening already:

Using ShowMe to Develop Student Created Math Tutorials - 0 views

  •  
    "This past semester, William Kiker and I (Kelly Wroblewski) applied to be part of a pilot iPad program at our high school.  As members of a small project based  learning community within Austin High School in Austin, TX, we latched on to the ShowMe app pretty quickly."

OpenTextBookStore Catalog - 0 views

  •  
    We scour the Internet for the best quality textbooks issued under open licenses that allow for printing. Instead of finding a list of 500+ books, you'll find a short list of books we feel are really adoptable and ready to use in a college classroom.

My Web 2.0 Journey: Now all I need is a leprechaun. - 0 views

  •  
    "After looking for one of those "joke" worksheets to review competing the square I thought I'd try some group work (ala @druinok) via index cards.  I decided to write problems in varying degrees of difficulty... those with an "a" value, those without, those that would result in fractions, etc.  I pulled out my Sharpies to start writing and what did I discover?"
