Math Apps: 21st Century Math Centers | Math File Folder Games. Math Games join the 21st Century, with innovative Mobile iOS apps! Check out our new innovative, fun, method of teaching and practicing mathematics. Our original math games makes use of the latest, youth friendly technology, to better engage students in learning mathematics. Many teachers view iPhones, and iPods as something to be kept out of the classroom, because they distract students, however, these are powerful tools which if used properly can greatly enhance educational experience by teaching in the language of today’s students.

Modern students spend 40 hours a week or more on their mobile devices and phones, making them an important platform of communication to this generation. Our iOS apps help open these lines of communication with the 21st century students. For teachers and parents the iOS games complete the feedback loop by producing progress reports to allow easy assessment of learning and progress. A Perfect 21st Century Math CenterWhere Student Work is Reported to You.

Interactive Maths - The Interactive Way to Teach Mathematics - Home. Welcome to the Mathematics Assessment Project. News New – TRU Math: Teaching for Robust Understanding of Mathematics is a suite of tools for professional develompent and research - the alpha versions of these documents are available here… More International Awards for Team: Hugh Burkhardt and Malcolm Swan, leaders of the Shell Centre team, have been chosen by the International Commission on Mathematical instruction (ICMI) as the first recipients of the Emma Castelnuovo Medal for Excellence in the Practice of Mathematics Education. This complements the award by ICMI to Alan Schoenfeld of the 2011 Felix Klein Medal for Lifetime Achievement in research.

Right Angle Triangles

Online Authoring Classroom. Hands On Math: Teaching Integer Addition & Multiplication Tables Using Corn-hole. Corn-hole has become all the craze for parties. I can think of a dozen different ways they could be used to teach math lessons. I will share two of these ideas below. Using Corn-hole to Teach Multiplication Tables This activity would be great for the whole class but I truly think it would be a wonderful tool for helping those students who are behind to catch-up. If I was still in the public schools, I would single out the students who still struggle with their multiplication tables and find time during activity period, study hall, etc for them to play this game. Essentially, you will have two different colored bean-bags. Rules of Play 1) If they make both colors in they will multiply them and add this number to their score 2) If they make one color but not the other, they multiply them but do not add them to their score 3) If they miss both of them, they multiply them and subtract the number from their score.

Examples Of Three Tosses: Toss 1: Blue Bag 2, Red Bag 5 Toss 2:Blue Bag 6, Red Bag 1. Distance Formula. We have a right-angled triangle with hypotenuse length c, as shown: Recall Pythagoras' Theorem, which tells us the length of the longest side (the hypotenuse): c=sqrt(a^2+b^2) We use this to find the distance between any two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) on the cartesian (x-y) plane: The Cartesian Plane The cartesian plane was named after Rene Descartes. See more about Descartes in Functions and Graphs. The point B (x2, y1) is at the right angle. The distance between the points A(x1, y1) and B(x2, y1) is simply x2 − x1 andThe distance between the points C(x2, y2) and B(x2, y1) is simply y2 − y1.

Using Pythagoras' Theorem we can develop a formula for the distance d. Distance Formula The distance between (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by: d=sqrt((x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2 Note: Don't worry about which point you choose for (x1, y1) or (x2, y2), because the answer works out the same. Interactive Graph - Distance Formula Drag either point A or point B to investigate how the distance formula works. x y Example 1. Algebra Resources. Math Project: Furnish A Hotel. Photo by Love My Tours A math project almost always begins with something I happened to see on the internet. In this case, the idea began with a love for IKEA‘s little furniture catalogs. It has evolved over time to fit different needs. The Basics Students are responsible for furnishing a hotel consisting of suites and standard rooms.

I give some requirements for each room (sofa, bed, coffee table, etc) and an hand over an IKEA catalog, along with some printed prices from Best Buy, Target, or other stores as needed. Students then go on a shopping spree to furnish their hotel. The Math This began as a decimal operation project. Students have $100,000 in cash, and can borrow unlimited funds at a 15% interest rate. Students also calculate the percent of their funds that went to various categories (tables, beds, etc). Students decided on rates for their rooms and suites (I’d recommend showing them some sample prices online). The Product You can take this idea in several directions: How To Use.
