Web 2.0 Tools for Math Educators By Laura Turner This is a continuing series on Web2.0 and other web-based tools for educators. This information is specific to math educators, but there is some crossover into science. KBruch Description KBruch is a small program to practice calculating with fractions. Therefore 4 different exercises are offered. My All Time Favorite Middle School Math Lessons I’m teaching high school now, but here are the lessons that I miss the very most. These are my “Must Do” lessons. I have a few friends who will teach middle school math (or Algebra 1) for the first time this year. Thanks to Jami for the inspiration for organizing these lessons. It’s been a walk down memory lane for me. I really miss middle school.
The Great Pi Conspiracy: Are We Using the Wrong Pi? My understanding of pi is that it is 3.141 with endless number. In other words, pi is a set of numbers that has no ending.

Personalizing Learning Infographic Other Infographics Personalizing Learning Infographic Personalizing Learning Infographic Personalized learning is the tailoring of pedagogy, curriculum and learning environments by learners or for learners in order to meet their different learning needs and aspirations.The Personalizing Learning Infographic explores how curriculum design can address personalized learning. What is Personalized Learning? from Wolfram MathWorld A special function which is given by the logarithmic derivative of the gamma function (or, depending on the definition, the logarithmic derivative of the factorial). Because of this ambiguity, two different notations are sometimes (but not always) used, with defined as the logarithmic derivative of the gamma function , and defined as the logarithmic derivative of the factorial function.
