Factoring a Quadratic Trinomial by Grouping Another method for factoring these kinds of quadratic trinomials is called factoring by grouping. Factoring by grouping can be a bit more tedious, and is often not worth the trouble if you can find the correct factors by some quick trial and error. However, it works quite well when the factors are not immediately obvious, such as when you have a very large number of candidate factors. When this happens, the trial and error method becomes very tedious

Math Teaching Videos Math Teaching VideosEach math problem comes with a step by step video solution, follow up problems, an online calculator and sketch pad. advertisement Jenn's Fish Tank Weighing Oranges The Boston Marathon Testing times: which times tables do kids find the hardest? It's maybe the stereotypical image of the primary school classroom: rows of children, chanting in unsion: "One times two is two. Two times two is four...". Learning our times tables, the rote memorisation of basic multiplication that's one of the bedrocks of getting to grips with maths, is something we've all at least tried to do.

Math Programs: How They Rate on Common-Core Alignment Based on market share and states’ recommendations, selected 20 math instructional series to review for common-core alignment. (For reporting purposes, K-5 and 6-8 texts from the same publisher were considered separate series.) Small teams of educators scored the digital and print texts on focus, coherence, rigor, and usability. The Math Forum @ Drexel University The Math Forum has a rich history as an online hub for the mathematics education community. A debt of gratitude is owed to the dedicated staff who created and maintained the top math education content and community forums that made up the Math Forum since its inception. NCTM will continue to make many of the most popular parts of the Math Forum content accessible to the mathematics education community. We hope that you will join or continue to be a member of the NCTM community to access even more high-quality resources for teaching and the learning of each and every student. Problems of the Week The Math Forum created Problems of the Week as an integrated program that features problems by standard and additional teacher support materials.

math Are We Underestimating the Math Powers of Our Youngest Students? New research questions if US math scores would improve if students were exposed to more complicated math early in their school lives. Continue Reading Could Calculus Be A Better Way to Introduce Kids to Math Than Arithmetic? Some educators are beginning to question the assumption that math is best taught in a linear sequence, focusing on patterns and structures instead of computations with elementary students. 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.

Moving into Math Stations, K-2 (DVD) Product Details Author: Debbie DillerISBN: 978-157110-962-0Year: 2013Media: 84 minutes + viewing guideGrade Range: K-2Item No: WEB-0962 Building on the enormous success of her book Math Work Stations: Independent Learning You Can Count On, K–2, Debbie Diller brings the world of math stations to life in this DVD, showing viewers how they too can effectively incorporate math stations into their instruction, enhancing students' conceptual understanding and skills. Here Debbie explores both the larger purpose of math stations—how they connect big ideas to meaningful independent practice—and the detailed nuts and bolts of how to create and implement stations in the math classroom. Working with first- and second-grade teachers and students, Debbie shows how to find the time and space for math stations, how to organize and manage manipulatives, how to move from whole-group lessons that focus on a particular math concept to stations work, how to foster all-important math talk, and more.

Beyond Working Hard: What Growth Mindset Teaches Us About Our Brains Growth mindset has become a pervasive theme in education discussions in part because of convincing research by Stanford professor Carol Dweck and others that relatively low-impact interventions on how a student thinks about himself as a learner can have big impacts on learning. The growth mindset research is part of a growing understanding and acknowledgement that many non-cognitive factors are important to academic learning. While it’s a positive sign that educators see value in the growth mindset research and believe they can implement it in their classrooms, the deceptively simple idea has led to some confusion and misperceptions about what a growth mindset really is and how teachers can support it in the classroom. It’s easy to lump growth mindset in with other education catchphrases, like “resiliency” or “having high expectations,” but growth mindset actually has a much more concrete definition.

Ten Myths About Mathematics Education And Why You Shouldn't Believe Them By Karen Budd, Elizabeth Carson, Barry Garelick, David Klein, R. James Milgram, Ralph A. Raimi, Martha Schwartz, Sandra Stotsky, Vern Williams, and W. Stephen Wilson (affiliations and more), in association with New York City HOLD and Mathematically Correct, two education advocacy organizations of parents, mathematicians, and K-12 educators.
