I Love Maths Games CTSPEDMATHDUDE | Making math accessible for all students ( special education math ) The Game of SKUNK Write the following questions on the chalkboard or overhead: I might make more money if I was in business for myself; should I quit my job? An earthquake might destroy my house; should I buy insurance? My mathematics teacher might collect homework today; should I do it? Ask students to share their responses to each of these scenarios. Every day each of us must make choices like those described above. Making the connection between choice and chance is basic to understanding the significance and usefulness of mathematical probability. The game of SKUNK presents middle-grade students with an experience that clearly involves both choice and chance. The Game of SKUNK To start the game each player makes a score sheet like this: Each letter of SKUNK represents a different round of the game; play begins with the "S" column and continue through the "K" column. At the beginning of each round, every player stands. Playing SKUNK with the Whole Class SKUNK Further Examples Sheet Thinking about SKUNK

How to Teach with Technology: Science and Math Students fire off ideas for using digital tools to teach scientific and mathematical concepts. Check out these tips from students and educators for high tech teaching: Science In former teacher T.J. Credit: Courtesy of DreamWorks SKG "The biggest thing needed for this project is an analysis of your resources," says Fletcher, who notes that in a project such as this, the teacher is not going to be the expert in all areas. "I let the students be the experts when it came to editing the videos," he adds. For inexpensive yet effective video cameras, he suggests trying Flip video cameras: "Their cost and durability make them an excellent choice for the classroom." Are You Game? Making video games will likely require some heavy lifting on the part of educators, but those interested in helping students create their own games can check out the World Wide Workshop Foundation, which, among other projects and resources, provides a program for teaching kids to design their own games.

Parabola The parabola has many important applications, from a parabolic antenna or parabolic microphone to automobile headlight reflectors to the design of ballistic missiles. They are frequently used in physics, engineering, and many other areas. Strictly, the adjective parabolic should be applied only to things that are shaped as a parabola, which is a two-dimensional shape. However, as shown in the last paragraph, the same adjective is commonly used for three-dimensional objects, such as parabolic reflectors, which are really paraboloids. Part of a parabola (blue), with various features (other colours). Introductory images[edit] Click on any image to enlarge it. Description of final image[edit] History[edit] The earliest known work on conic sections was by Menaechmus in the fourth century BC. Galileo showed that the path of a projectile follows a parabola, a consequence of uniform acceleration due to gravity. Equation in Cartesian coordinates[edit] Squaring both sides and simplifying produces Thus:
