Math Manipulatives: About Virtual Manipulatives Math Manipulatives contains three pages of resources: About Virtual Manipulatives What is a virtual manipulative? In What are Virtual Manipulatives?, Patricia Moyer, Johnna Bolyard, and Mark Spikell (2002) defined a virtual manipulative as "an interactive, Web-based visual representation of a dynamic object that presents opportunities for constructing mathematical knowledge" (p. 373). Static and dynamic virtual models can be found on the Web, but static models are not true virtual manipulatives. The Harmonious Mathematics of Music According to legend, the Ancient Greek Pythagoras was once walking on the streets of Samos, when the sounds of blacksmiths’ hammering suddenly gave him an epiphany. Pythagoras rushed into the shop and, as he analyzed mathematically the shapes of the blacksmiths’ hammers, he laid the foundations of music that today’s Rihanna, Shakira and others are building upon. Wait a minute… Are you talking about the guy from the Pythagorean theorem? I am.
Ice Cream Combinations Shine + Write | Transum Software A different version of this activity is here. This is a visual aid designed to be projected onto a whiteboard for whole class exposition. It does not need to be an interactive whiteboard though of course that will make the resource more dynamic.

How to Use Wolfram Alpha Inside Google Docs Wolfram Alpha is a search engine that is probably best know for helping students solve mathematics problems. But there is more to Wolfram Alpha than just computational data. Wolfram Alpha can help students quickly locate information about famous people in history, locate socioeconomic data, find science data, and even help students find information about music theory. Unlike on Google or Bing, when students search on Wolfram Alpha they won't be shown a list of links. When students search Wolfram Alpha they will be shown organized collections of information. That is why Wolfram Alpha and Google searches can complement each other.
from Wolfram MathWorld A special function which is given by the logarithmic derivative of the gamma function (or, depending on the definition, the logarithmic derivative of the factorial). Because of this ambiguity, two different notations are sometimes (but not always) used, with defined as the logarithmic derivative of the gamma function , and String, Straightedge, and Shadow Click here to skip to this page's main content.
