Esti-Mysteries: Estimation Meets Math Mysteries - Steve Wyborney's Blog: I'm on a Learning Mission.

Each image invites students to wonder what number is represented by the image. As you click through the each Esti-Mystery, clues will appear that will allow the students to use math concepts to narrow the set of possibilities to a small set of numbers. In the end, the students will need to call upon their estimation skills to solve the mystery and find the missing number. NOTE: In addition, to these original Esti-Mysteries, you may also want to visit the brand new post 51 Esti-Mysteries. Here is an example: Download the Esti-Mysteries, try them in your class, and let me know about your experience.

Common core resources /mathematical practice standards /standard 2: reason abstractly & quantitatively / Classroom observations: Teachers who are developing students’ capacity to "reason abstractly and quantitatively" help their learners understand the relationships between problem scenarios and mathematical representation, as well as how the symbols represent strategies for solution.

A middle childhood teacher might ask her students to reflect on what each number in a fraction represents as parts of a whole. A different middle childhood teacher might ask his students to discuss different sample operational strategies for a patterning problem, evaluating which is the most efficient and accurate means of finding a solution.

Math Talk. Mathtalk. A Guide to the 8 Mathematical Practice Standards. Common Core mathematics is a way to approach teaching so that students develop a mathematical mindset and see math in the world around them.

A Guide to the 8 Mathematical Practice Standards

We are making problem-solvers. No matter what your objectives, textbook, or grade level, the eight mathematical practice standards are a guide to good math instruction. Here they are in plain English with suggestions for incorporating them into your everyday math class. #1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them What it means: Understand the problem, find a way to attack it, and work until it is done.

Students generally feel as though they--a single voice--are writing down their words to hand to an audience of one--the teacher--for evaluation. And let's face it. Enter the RAFT writing assignment.

This eighth grade (middle school) task provides students opportunities to interpret a situation, represent the variables mathematically, select appropriate mathematical methods, interpret and evaluate the data generated, and communicate their reasoning.

Understanding Language

Students work with selected formulas to model a situation, interpret given data, make approximations, communicate their reasoning in verbal and written form, and critique solutions developed by others.

Scaffolded Math and Science: Middle School Math Word Wall Ideas. For a year between teaching mainstream high school math and teaching special education high school math, I tried teaching middle school math.

How to Change the Amplitude, Period, and Position of a Tangent or Cotangent Graph. You can transform the graph for tangent and cotangent vertically, change the period, shift the graph horizontally, or shift it vertically.

How to Change the Amplitude, Period, and Position of a Tangent or Cotangent Graph

However, you should take each transformation one step at a time. For example, to graph follow these steps: Sketch the parent graph for tangent. Shrink or stretch the parent graph.The vertical shrink is 1/2 for every point on this function, so each point on the tangent parent graph is half as tall.Seeing vertical changes for tangent and cotangent graphs is harder, but they're there. This graph doesn't shift horizontally, because no constant is added inside the grouping symbols (parentheses) of the function. Review : Trig Functions. The intent of this section is to remind you of some of the more important (from a Calculus standpoint…) topics from a trig class. One of the most important (but not the first) of these topics will be how to use the unit circle. We will actually leave the most important topic to the next section.

First let’s start with the six trig functions and how they relate to each other. Recall as well that all the trig functions can be defined in terms of a right triangle. Transformation of Trigonometric Graphs.

Transformations of the Sine and Cosine Graphs. Transformations of the Sine and Cosine Graph – An Exploration By Sharon K. O’Kelley This is an exploration for Advanced Algebra or Precalculus teachers who have introduced their students to the basic sine and cosine graphs and now want their students to explore how changes to the equations affect the graphs. Review : Trig Functions. Radians to degrees. How to convert degrees to radians or radians to degrees. Theory: What are 'radians' ? One radian is the angle of an arc created by wrapping the radius of a circle around its circumference.

In this diagram, the radius has been wrapped around the circumference to create an angle of 1 radian. The pink lines show the radius being moved from the inside of the circle to the outside: The radius 'r' fits around the circumference of a circle exactly 2p times. Circumference = 2pr So there are 2p radians in a complete circle, and p radians in a half circle.
