MURDEROUS MATHS: The most pathetic and useless facts... The 8th MM book is full of P.U.F.s (Perfectly Useless Facts) so before it was published we asked everyone to vote for the most pathetic, irritating and useless fact in maths!

How to combine maths and poetry in your class. Scotland's Curriculum for Excellence places responsibility for promoting the development of numeracy skills on all classroom teachers, rather than leaving such nefarious wizardry solely to the maths department.

How to combine maths and poetry in your class

This is an admirable aim but at first glance causes mild panic for us artsy fartsy teachers of English. I've heard some say that numeracy skills can be boosted in the English classroom simply by directing pupils towards a particular page number in a novel, but I can't say I agree. Certainly, there seem to be fewer opportunities to build numeracy skills in English than in, say, science or computing classes. Nevertheless we can surely go beyond the basic task of finding a page number. One answer lies in the French literary movement known as Oulipo (its full title is ouvroir de littérature potentielle, which translates roughly as 'workshop of potential literature'). There are a few exercises which can be used successfully in schools, however. Download Alan's Oulipo resource here. How to Learn Math: For Students.

How to Learn Math: For Students

It combines really important information on the brain and learning with new evidence on the best ways to approach and learn math effectively. Many people have had negative experiences with math, and end up disliking math or failing. A Focus on Fractions: Bringing Research to the Classroom, 2nd Edition (Paperback) About the Book A Focus on Fractions is a groundbreaking effort to make the mathematics education research on how students develop their understanding of fraction concepts readily accessible and understandable to pre- and in-service K– 8 mathematics educators.

A Focus on Fractions: Bringing Research to the Classroom, 2nd Edition (Paperback)

Using extensive annotated samples of student work, as well as vignettes characteristic of classroom teachers’ experiences, this book equips educators with the knowledge and tools to revealstudents’ thinking so that they can modify their teaching and improve student learning of fraction concepts. A Focus on Fractions 2nd edition includes sections on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and the Ongoing Assessment Project (OGAP) Fraction Framework integrated into each chapter as well as a new chapter on the OGAP Fraction Progression and how it can be used for formative assessment purposes.

Special Features: Money Duck. Bootstrap: Materials. Curriculum and Software Bootstrap:1 applies mathematical concepts and rigorous programming principles to creating a simple vidoegame, and is aligned to Common Core Standards for Mathematics -- including the new standards for Mathematical Practice!

Blooming Zoetrope Sculptures. The placement of the appendages on these sculptures is critical to the success of the animation effect.

Blooming Zoetrope Sculptures

The positions are based on a specific phyllotaxy (i.e. leaf order) used by nature in a number of botanical forms, including pinecones, pineapples, sunflowers, artichokes, palm trees, and many succulents. The photo above shows just such a succulent. I have numbered the leaves from youngest to oldest. If you follow the numbers in sequence you will find that each leaf is approximately 137.5º around the core from the previous leaf. 137.5º is a very special angle, called the golden angle, based on the golden ratio.

When that angle is used by nature as a growth strategy it leads to the formation of spiral patterns. 3D Flower POP UP Card BEST OF ALL. Stiftelsen Marcus och Amalia Wallenbergs Minnesfond. Background The Foundation wants to contribute to the advancement of teaching excellence in Swedish schools.

For that purpose we envision a long term program that provides devoted teachers challenging, inspiring and advanced teaching experiences and studies overseas. The ”Pilot 2014” made it possible for 6 teachers to participate in the “Stanford Summer Teachers Institute” at Stanford University in California US during one week in combination with talks and presentations from Stanford Faculty, participate in other Stanford Summer activities and visit other schools and laboratories. Invitation For the summer of 2015 the Foundation will invite another group of 6 teachers to participate in the Stanford Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET) program. The Swedish teachers will participate in the CSET courses given the week of July 6-10 2015, which are described on the web-site Stanford CSET Teaching Institute 2015 Course Descriptions.
