it's often quite interesting to flip a question around: here's the answer, what was the question? given an nth term rule what might a matchstick pattern look like: was quite a challenge for a while then someone hit upon the idea of e.g. starting with 8 and adding 6 each time their patterns were not always sufficiently regular though some regular versions were found

eRiding - Mathematics & Numeracy - Secondary Mathematics & Numeracy - Secondary Resources ' In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them. '- Johann von Neumann (1903 - 1957) Materials to support teaching and learning have been developed and will continue to be developed and displayed on this site. Introduction to the Resources The teaching and learning resources are many and varied. Using Mini-Whiteboards and Paired and Group Work in Secondary Mathematics, were written in response to requests from teachers and have proved particularly useful in supporting pedagogic styles.

Common Core Problem Based Curriculum Maps The following Problem Based Learning (PrBL) curriculum maps are based on the Math Common Core State Standards and the associated scope and sequences. The problems and tasks have been scoured from thoughtful math bloggers who have advanced our practice by posting their materials online. The Scope and Sequences for Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, Math 9 (Integrated), Math 10 (Integrated), and Math 11 (Integrated) are from Pearson. Other Scope and Sequences were developed by me, modeling a similar visual style.

Standards Units Welcome to > teachers > essential freebies > standards units From the NCETM website: "This multi-media resource has been developed with teachers, trainers and managers. Improving Learning in Mathematics builds on existing successful practice and explores approaches that encourage a more active way of learning through the use of group work, discussion and open questioning. Learners are encouraged to ‘have a go’, become more independent and reflective about their mathematics, to learn to think mathematically rather than simply learning rules and most importantly, to enjoy their mathematics"

Maths resources - Maths Careers This page aims to provide a range of resources to support teachers in the classroom as well as parents at home. Mathematical Trickery (produced by the more maths grads project) Teacher Information (DOC 265Kb, PDF 95Kb) Five Hundred And Seven Mechanical Movements Phil Nast, retired middle school teacher and freelance writer Found in: arts, language arts & literature, math, science, social studies, preK-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 Henry T. Writing in Mathematics Featured Topic: Writing in Math Class Teachers incorporate writing in math class to help students reflect on their learning, deepen their understanding of important concepts by explaining and providing examples of those concepts, and make important connections to real-life applications of the math they are learning. Teachers use the writing assignments to assess student understanding of important concepts, student proficiency in explaining and using those concepts and each student's attitude toward learning mathematics. Writing in mathematics is a win-win for both teacher and student.
