Technology, when used appropriately, can help make science classroom a site of active learning and critical thinking, furthering student inquiry and connections with the materials. Teachers can use technology to enable students to explore fundamental curriculum issues and answer core questions. Students can use the Internet, electronic databases, applets and other online sources to gather information. They can use spreadsheets, virtual labs, and other programs to store, organize, and analyze information. Students can also integrate multimedia desktop publishing, web publishing, video and audio editing, as well as graphics programs to create and present information in innovative and engaging ways. There are scores of educators and researchers deeply concerned with how our schools, largely the product of 19th century industrial society, are going to prepare students for the 21st century.

Math Blogs Sort-of-Real-World Math | MathyCathy's Blog – Mrs. Cathy Yenca Dan Meyer’s latest post got me thinking about what seems to motivate students as far as “real-world-ness” goes. What’s timely about this post is, I think some things my students did in class today go along well with reflecting upon, as Dan puts it, “theories of engagement”. How “real-world” does the math have to be to be worthwhile to kids? Take my algebra students, for example. My pre-algebra students started today’s lesson with a graphic I found on Facebook. Before talking about how to calculate a percent of change, I asked students to guess what they thought the percent increase was in the scenario. We veered from the scenario and did some typical textbook examples… and once they got the hang of it, they were all trying to sneak back and solve the t-shirt problem. All I know is, when it comes to “theories of engagement” it’s not an exact science… but when you reach that point in a lesson where the mathematics becomes irresistible, you’re in a good place. :-)

Georgia Standards · CCGPS Mathematics Grades K-5 · CCGPS Mathematics Glossary Third grade teachers working on unit revisions at GaDOE (June 2013) 2013-2014 CCGPS Mathematics Unit Frameworks Teacher and Student Editions of the 2013-2014 CCGPS Mathematics Unit Frameworks were posted on July 1, 2013, to GeorgiaStandards.Org and Learning Village. These unit frameworks reflect the thoughtful collaboration and dedication of mathematics teachers, coaches, and supervisors from across the state of Georgia. K-5 CCGPS Mathematics Overview The K-5 standards are organized using domains, overarching ideas that connect topics across the grades, clusters that illustrate progression of increasing complexity from grade to grade and standards which define what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The focus in the K-5 standards is comparable to that seen in high-performing countries.

Dan Meyer My Three Acts of a Real World Math Problem Dan Meyer, an inspirational writer, speaker and teacher (whom I met at the Siemens STEM Institute), is helping math teachers across the country stimulate the curious minds of our students. Meyer proposes that teaching mathematics should be like having your students watch a movie. In a typical movie, there are three acts. Act One engages the audience. Today I was at the gas station, filling up my tank to go home for the holidays, when I noticed that it was taking an unusual amount of time to fill up my tank. Below you will find my Three Acts of a real world math problem. Act One Ask your students, "What questions do you have after watching the video?" Possible questions that the students could ask: How long will it take to fill the tank from start to finish? What resources will your students need before they can resolve their conflict? Ask your students, "What information do you need to know to answer your questions?" After students solve the problem, prove that their answer is correct.
