Math in Daily Life

People have been using these same principles for thousands of years, across countries and continents. Whether you're sailing a boat off the coast of Japan or building a house in Peru, you're using math to get things done. How can math be so universal? First, human beings didn't invent math concepts; we discovered them. Also, the language of math is numbers, not English or German or Russian. Join us as we explore how math can help us in our daily lives. Mathematics. Atlas - Home. You are using an unsupported internet browser.

Each problem is divided into five levels of difficulty, Level A (primary) through Level E (high school). The problems are aligned to the Common Core standards. Learn more here. Performance assessment tasks: Grade-level formative performance assessment tasks with accompanying scoring rubrics and discussion of student work samples. The tasks are aligned to the Common Core standards.

Classroom videos: Videos of public lessons and number talks, most based on performance assessment tasks, that have been extensively field-tested in multiple settings and refined over time. Dana Center early mathematics tasks: A series of instructional tasks, aligned with the Common Core standards, that teachers can use to instruct grades pre-K through grade 2.

This lesson assists teachers in building a bridge between their current instructional goals and new goals that emphasize an earlier introduction to algebraic thinking.

Building Bridges

In the activities which follow, we illustrate an approach to algebraic thinking that is based on an extension of problem-solving tasks typically investigated by elementary and middle school students. Problem Tasks Pose the following question to students. They may work individually or in groups, depending on their needs. Note that the task is completed once the single solution has been determined. When a different question is posed, however, problems like the one above can be used as a bridge to further mathematical thinking. Read the following problem to your students. As you discuss this new problem with your students, ask them the following questions: How is this question similar to the original Hamburger Problem? The posing of a new question does not guarantee a change in students' thinking. Problem Solving Lesson Plan: The Quandary Game. Preparation: This lesson plan is centered around the online game Quandary.

Problem Solving Lesson Plan: The Quandary Game

In Quandary, players make difficult decisions that have no clear right or wrong answers, but important consequences – to themselves, to others in the colony, and to the planet Braxos. In their interactions with other settlers in the futuristic colony, players must consider facts, opinions and solutions, just as in real life. You can view the Quandary standards mapping page to see a complete list of skills and concepts addressed through the game. There are four episodes (scenarios) in Quandary. Each episode takes about 10-30 minutes to complete, depending on the speed of the player. On the Quandary Teacher's Page, you can view a 5 minute video showing how Quandary is being used in the classroom. To prepare for game play, print the opinion tracker page and make a class set of photocopies.
