But I am le tired... Looking at new ways to learn math, science | One way to learn projective geometry is to sit in a classroom and memorize Whitehead’s axiom and ternary relations. Another is to go out on a wide swath of grass and use Alberti’s window to study giant parabolas. The latter is the manner preferred by Ricardo Nemirovsky, a professor of mathematics education at San Diego State University and director of the Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education, a joint program involving SDSU and the University of California San Diego. About the program The Mathematics and Science Education Ph.D. program operated jointly by SDSU and UCSD. • Began in 1993 • Currently 16 students: 14 math education & 2 science education • Research intensive, full-time program • Admissions requirements: master’s degree in math, biology, or physics or master’s degree in math education and with math courses during Ph.D. • Interdisciplinary program of study • Stipends for 2011-12 are $20,000 plus tuition at both campuses is covered.

Pharrell Williams - Happy Boy (2010) Khan Academy Graphing Inequalities « Zero-Knowledge Proofs November 3, 2011 by John Scammell Last week, I mentioned to a group of teachers that I had never come up with a good way to teach kids where to shade when graphing an inequality. Vicky from one of our local high schools shared her method with me. It’s pretty nice. Vicky gives her students an inequality like She asks them to each find two coordinates that satisfy the inequality, and then plot them on a giant grid at the front of the room. From this graph, it becomes pretty obvious that there is a line involved, and which side of the line we should shade. We could extend this method to quadratic inequalities. , we could ask students to find ordered pairs that satisfy the inequality, and plot them on a grid at the front. Students could then have conversations about which of the shading should include the boundary, and which should not, and how to deal with that. Like this: Like Loading...

Math tips from Maths Insider photo © 2007 Herman Yung | more info (via: Wylio) Perfect hair, perfect teeth, perfect nails, perfect parents. Pah! There’s no such thing! As much as you try to be the perfect parent and raise the perfect child, you’ll always fall short!
