Furbles | ptolemy.co.uk “Furbles are the shape of things to come: this software is technology at its best and well worth the money.” John Dabell, TES Magazine Furbles started life as an idea for teaching statistics in an interesting way with children from KS1 to KS3. The original version was published in 2003 online, and its popularity spread. It has been downloaded and used over 20,000 times in the last five years. In 2006 Sherston Software commissioned me to write a commercial version. Furbles was originally devised as an innovative way of imagining statistics and the depiction of statistics. Part of the idea of Furbles was also to encourage teachers to take a fresh look at how to teach the subjects. This model of a Furble (right) from Ferndown Middle School is a wonderful example of some work that lead from Furbles at a primary school. If you are interested in purchasing the 2008 commercial version, then please visit the Sherston Software website.

How to measure butter & margarine How to Measure Butter Is 1/2 lb. of butter the same as 1/2 cup of butter? The recipe writers of the world have entered into a conspiracy to make cooking with butter way more complex than it should be. In one recipe they ask for a half-cup of butter. In the next, they ask for 8 tablespoons. In this country, butter is mostly packaged in 1-pound boxes, with four individually wrapped quarters or sticks.

Un professeur de collège révolutionne ses cours de mathématiques de 3ème grâce à Maple T.A. – Ludovia Magazine Thomas Garcia, professeur de mathématiques de 3e au Collège Fontreyne – Académie d’Aix-Marseille, croit en la technologie en classe en matière d’enseignement et d’apprentissage. Il commence systématiquement ses cours de 3e par dix minutes de questions Maple T.A. auxquelles les élèves doivent répondre sur tablettes individuelles. Toute la classe discute ensuite des résultats. Les questions les plus difficiles sont étudiées par l’ensemble des élèves sur un tableau blanc interactif. Ce processus leur permet de savoir s’ils se sont correctement appropriés ou non le concept. Dans cette classe particulière, les élèves bénéficient de nombreuses possibilités de pratique pour se familiariser avec le concept. En introduisant Maple T.A., M. « Mes principaux objectifs ont été pleinement atteints gràce à Maple T.A.

Curriculum Mapping We thought it would be helpful for maths teachers if we identified our favourite "rich tasks" from the NRICH collection. These resources have been chosen because they are ideal for developing subject content knowledge as well as mathematical thinking and problem-solving (process) skills. The documents give links to the different topics in the curriculum. We know they are transferable and useful to all teachers, whatever curriculum they follow. To help you further, as teachers create additional mapping documents based on ours and send them to us, we are adding them below. Further NRICH links to the Secondary Mathematics Curriculum in England NRICH has worked with the Secondary National Strategy to develop guidance based on NRICH problems that illustrate what pupils should know and be able to do within a particular process strand. NRICH links to OCR stages Mark Greenaway, an AST in Suffolk, has worked on embedding resources listed in the mapping documents to the 10 OCR stages.

Des ressources mathématiques pour apprenants et enseignants Enseigner ou apprendre les mathématiques signifie qu’il faut inculquer ou assimiler une panoplie de notions.

À l’ère d’Internet, heureusement, professeurs et apprenants peuvent aller dénicher sur le réseau des textes informatifs, des exemples, des exercices, etc. Au secours des apprenants et des professeurs aussi De nombreuses ressources s’adressent autant aux enseignants qu’aux apprenants Le blogue Autono’maths, tenue lui-même par une enseignante, offre des activités et ressources pour les collégiens de la sixième, quatrième et troisième année. Le site de l’académie de Bordeaux en mathématiques s’adresse, quant à lui, au corps enseignant en leur offrant des ressources au collège et au lycée dont des descriptions de programmes, les propositions de cycles, des exemples de mises en œuvre et des activités qu’ils peuvent employer.
