Using Writing In Mathematic. Using Writing In Mathematics This strand provides a developmental model for incorporating writing into a math class.

Using Writing In Mathematic

The strand includes specific suggestions for managing journals, developing prompts for writing, and providing students with feedback on their writing. In addition, the site includes two sample lessons for introducing students to important ideas related to writing about their mathematical thinking. Teaching Strategies For Incorporating Writing Into Math Class: Moving From Open-Ended Questions To Math Concepts Starting Out Gently with Affective, Open-Ended Prompts Writing about thinking is challenging.

Begin with affective, open-ended questions about students' feelings. Have students write a "mathography"-a paragraph or so in which they describe their feelings about and experiences in math, both in and out of school. Encourage students to keep their pencils moving. Try requiring 20 words per answer, even if they have to copy the same words again to reach 20. 1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 1. MATH WORDS, AND SOME OTHER WORDS OF INTEREST.

Art with Mrs. Nguyen: Radial Paper Relief Sculptures (4th/5th) For this lesson we began by taking about what symmetry is and the difference between linear symmetry (1 line of symmetry) and radial symmetry (more than 1 line of symmetry).

Art with Mrs. Nguyen: Radial Paper Relief Sculptures (4th/5th)

Then we talked about what a sculpture is (a piece of artwork you can see from all sides - it is 3-dimensional) and what a relief "sculpture" is (a piece of artwork that has depth on the surface but is not meant to be seen from all sides). Once students understood the principles behind radial symmetry and sculpture we began creating our very own radial paper relief sculptures!

Students started by folding a piece of 12"x12" black construction paper diagonally both ways and vertical and horizontally (to create an 'X' crease and a '+' crease). Making these creases makes creating a radial design SO much easier because it gives you guidelines to work with. Once their papers had been folded and their names written, we sat them aside. My kids absolutely LOVED this project! Using a Protractor. Interactive angles teaching tool acute,obtuse,measure with protractor. This activity allows manipulation and investigation of various types of angles.

It can be used at a variety of different grade levels. At its most basic for teaching about types of angles, acute, obtuse or reflex. For more advanced use to create angle problems in which the missing letter angle values have to be found. You can click and drag the handles to change the angles and the values will updated. A built in protractor can be used to practice measuring angles. The controls The mode control is used to it selects the type of angle problem. In all the modes individual angles can be shown or hidden for example click the angle (a). The handles at the end of each line can be clicked and dragged to change the angle.

Mode 'one' Identifying angle types. The initial mode is unique in that there is only one angle. The Foos — Fun computer programming for kids. Juice Labs - Chart Chooser. The 14 Best Data Visualization Tools.

The 14 Best Data Visualization Tools

Raw data is boring and it’s difficult to make sense of it in its natural form. Add visualization to it and you get something that everybody can easily digest. Not only you can make sense of it faster, but you can also observe interesting patterns that wouldn’t be apparent from looking only at stats. All Killer, No Filler This one’s different, trust us.

To make the tedious task of making beautiful charts and maps easier, I’ve made the list of best data visualization tools available for the job. Let’s get started! For Developers D3.js D3.js, short for ‘Data Driven Documents’, is the first name that comes to mind when we think of a Data Visualization Software. It doesn’t ship with pre-built charts out of the box, but has a nice gallery which showcases what’s possible with D3. FusionCharts FusionCharts has probably the most exhaustive collection of charts and maps. Chart.js Google Charts Highcharts Leaflet dygraphs. Matrix calculator.
