Welcome to the Platonic Realms Interactive Mathematics Encyclopedia, a growing collection of articles on core topics written expressly for math students and enthusiasts at all academic levels.


To begin, simply browse through the topics using the listings directory on the left side of the page. Click on a letter to browse alphabetically, and hover over any listing to see a brief definition or description. If the description ends with an ellipsis (…) then the article you get to by clicking on the listing will be longer and more detailed. Each article on PRIME was written by one or more professional mathematics educators and each is independently reviewed for mathematical and pedagogical soundness. Also, unlike other math encyclopedias, the level and tone of each article is adjusted to the academic level at which a student would ordinarily be encountering the topic for the first time.

The collection of articles on PRIME is constantly growing. Mathwords. Scaffolded Math and Science: High School Math Word Wall Ideas. Adding a math word wall to my classroom completely changed my teaching.

Scaffolded Math and Science: High School Math Word Wall Ideas

A couple years before making the jump to teaching high school special education math, I taught mainstream Algebra and Algebra 2 in Boston. My classroom was right next to the classroom of a Geometry teacher who would later go on to become Teacher of the Year. Lining the bulletin boards and walls of his classroom, from floor to ceiling, were vocabulary words with drawings and examples making the most amazing display. At the time I thought it was a bit extreme. I mean, aren't these kids in high school? My teacher back in Boston neighbor was absolutely right in putting it all out there like that.

When my husband moved from teaching elementary school to high school he was a little worried. Since starting at my current school, I have taught Geometry, Biology, Consumer Math and Algebra 2. I recently made a Geometry word wall and a super sweet teacher sent me this photo of it hanging in her classroom. Talking Math: 100 Questions That Help Promote Mathematical Discourse.

Talking Math: 100 Questions That Help Promote Mathematical Discourse

Can they be answered with a simple “yes” or “no,” or do they open a door for students to really share their knowledge in a way that highlights their true understanding and uncovers their misunderstandings? Asking better questions can open new doors for students, helping to promote mathematical thinking and encouraging classroom discourse. Such questions help students: Work together to make sense of mathematics.Rely more on themselves to determine whether something is mathematically correct.Learn to reason mathematically.Evaluate their own processes and engage in productive peer interaction.Discover and seek help with problems in their comprehension.Learn to conjecture, invent and solve problems.Learn to connect mathematics, its ideas and its applications.Focus on the mathematical skills embedded within activities.

Math Manipulatives: About Virtual Manipulatives

In What are Virtual Manipulatives? , Patricia Moyer, Johnna Bolyard, and Mark Spikell (2002) defined a virtual manipulative as "an interactive, Web-based visual representation of a dynamic object that presents opportunities for constructing mathematical knowledge" (p. 373). Static and dynamic virtual models can be found on the Web, but static models are not true virtual manipulatives. Virtual manipulatives have a range of characteristics, such as pictorial images only, combined pictorial and numeric images, simulations, and concept tutorials, which include pictorial and numeric images with directions and feedback (Moyer-Packenham, Salkind, & Bolyard, 2008).

10 Unusual Ways to Explore Math

I never really liked math. I played the school game well so I received pretty good grades, but after I passed the test (even after receiving an A in most cases), those rules, theorems and facts didn’t stick around for very long. The problem was everything was drilled into me, or as I like to think now, drilled out of me.
