Great Maths Teaching Ideas | Sharing great ideas and resources with maths teachers around the world I’ve recently been exploring the story behind the headlines when it comes to the PISA tests. It’s a story that needs telling as it places some pretty large caveats on any interpretation of the international league tables published by PISA. There are many PISA sceptics who cite such arguments as: The tests are only taken by, and percentages quoted about, students in school that day. It ignores the non-attenders who can account for significant proportions of society in many countries.Only approximately 10% of students take the full test. The rest take only part of the test and their answers to the questions they didn’t take are estimated using a Rasch model.

Overview - About the Assessment - Math Reasoning Inventory MRI is an online formative assessment tool designed to make teachers’ classroom instruction more effective. The MRI questions focus on number and operations and are based on content from the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics prior to sixth grade. They are questions that we expect…and hope…all middle school students to answer successfully. There are three assessments in MRI—Whole Numbers, Decimals, and Fractions. Each assessment has two sections—the Interview and the Written Computation sections. The Interview (10–12 questions), done face-to-face, focuses on core reasoning strategies and understandings.

Afterschool Curriculum Choice: Mathematics Resources is an initiative of PEAR, the Program in Education, Afterschool and Resiliency at Harvard University and the SEDL National Center for Quality Afterschool. This database was conceived, compiled and coordinated by a team at PEAR in collaboration with SEDL. PEAR's team consisted of Gil Noam, Sarah Schwartz, Kristin Sinclair, Erin Cooney, Larina Mehta, and Sara Hoots. SEDL's team consisted of Cathy Jordan, Deborah Donnelly, and Brian Litke. The database is designed to help practitioners locate and make informed choices about high-quality mathematics resources to enrich their programs. Resources were selected based on proven use in afterschool settings, and include challenging lesson plans and organized activities. Afterschool Curriculum Choice: Math Resources
nrich.maths.org Welcome to the July edition of NRICH! This month we offer you a Random Spectacular! We've chosen some old favourites as well as some new ideas, that are just right to round off the school year, and can be used in the classroom or at home during the holidays. Pupils and students can submit solutions to the problems using the 'Submit a Solution' tab at the top of each problem. Solutions to the July problems will appear in September. If you're a teacher, the Teachers' Notes accompanying each problem offer guidance on possible ways of engaging learners in the activity or challenge.

Addition & Subtraction Games Students place markers on the numbers 2-12. Students toss two 6-sided dice, find the sum and remove a marker from that number, if there is still one. The first player to remove all markers wins the game. This game can be used as addition practice or as an introduction to the probability of the different outcomes of rolling two dice. This game was developed by a Monmouth University student for the Probability Fair.

Mathematically Sane Jo Boaler Reveals Attacks by Critics By admin - Last updated: Sunday, October 14, 2012 Jo Boaler is a renowned scholar of mathematics education who has demonstrated in multiple studies that “students who engage actively in their mathematics learning, rather than simply practicing procedures, achieve at higher levels.” In this article, she discusses the unbelievable level of “harassment and persecution” she has suffered for pursuing this line of research at the hands of two critics who engage in some very unsavory practices.

Penguin Math Games Capture the Penguins Gameuses the outcome of two-dice toss to form a coordinate pair. Students toss two dice (one regular and one A-F) in this fun game that introduces students to coordinate graphing in the spaces. Students form a coordinate pair based on the dice toss and capture a penguin, if possible. Students use the accompanying recording sheet to keep score during the game. A-F Dice: Create A-F dice using plain dice or purchase small wooden cubes at a craft store to make the dice.
