Every evening around teatime, I have the joy of my son playing this game on the xbox with three of his friends from school. Now they don’t come round to play but meet up in a game world from the comfort of their own homes. As a regular listener to the verbal exchanges, I am fast growing to see educational potential in this piece of software. In January, I read with interest that a post primary school in Sweden, as even incorporated it into the curriculum.
Singapore maths effect is small but potentially powerful, study finds A Singaporean "mastery" approach to maths improves children’s skills and could provide a long-term economic benefit, new research suggests. The improvement seen in schools using the Mathematics Mastery programme is equivalent to one month’s additional progress, but a new analysis of the potential economic benefits of the programme predicts that even an extra month of progress at age 10 could increase adults' average wages by around £150 to £200 a year. Interest in the way maths is taught in East Asia has been sparked by the success of Shanghai, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea in the Pisa (Programme for International Student Assessment) rankings. The Mathematics Mastery programme, which is based on teaching methods from Singapore, has been adopted by the Ark academy chain and was evaluated by John Jerrim, reader in educational and social statistics at the UCL Institute of Education and Anna Vignoles, professor of education at the University of Cambridge.

Using Google Apps in a Math Classroom This week I am hosting some guest bloggers. This is a guest post from Bethany Mager. I have been teaching high school math for 12 years and I currently work to help teachers integrate technology in our 1:1 high school using Google Apps. I often find that math teachers are reluctant to use Google Docs in a math classroom, but Google Apps has completely transformed the way I teach. English pupil's maths scores improve under east Asian approach Schools in England experimenting with east Asian teaching methods have seen an improvement in children’s mathematics skills after just one year, according to a study. The research, published on Thursday, which represents the first hard evidence that introducing a Singaporean “maths mastery” approach into English classrooms can influence results, found a “relatively small but welcome improvement” in children’s performance. The report’s lead author warned however that the mastery programme should not be seen as “a silver bullet” and called for it to be tested over a longer period in a greater number of schools in order to build a fuller picture. Policymakers have been studying teaching methods in east Asian countries such as Singapore, Japan and South Korea, which dominate the Pisa international league tables measuring children’s academic achievement.

Fractals like these can seem too perfect to be true, but they occur in nature and plants all the time and are examples of math, physics, and natural selection at work! When we see order in the world, we think it must be some human hand that made it so. But Galileo Galilei in his Il Saggiatore wrote, “[The universe] is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures.” There is order in nature, and artists who want to reproduce it faithfully spend hours studying nature’s forms.
