MIT Open Courseware: Physics New Visions Math Curriculum Do you find your high school math students are able to solve problems but often can’t explain their reasoning? Are you spending too much of your planning time focusing on what to teach as opposed to how to teach? Do you struggle with how to support students learning English as a new language and students with disabilities? Are you looking for resources to help you provide focus, rigor, and coherence for your students? New Visions for Public Schools has the resources to help. We understand that teachers may use resources differently, so we have created and curated high-quality Open Educational Resource (OER) materials available in Google Docs; we encourage teachers to make their own copies of resources and thoughtfully modify to make them useful for their individual needs. Not sure how to start using the curriculum? Can’t find what you’re looking for? Teacher Testimonials "I've seen the greatest impact in my self-contained class.
Pocket Phonics Stories on the App Store Computing Technology for Math Excellence Boole - 19th Century Mathematics The British mathematician and philosopher George Boole, along with his near contemporary and countryman Augustus de Morgan, was one of the few since Leibniz to give any serious thought to logic and its mathematical implications. Unlike Leibniz, though, Boole came to see logic as principally a discipline of mathematics, rather than of philosophy. His extraordinary mathematical talents did not manifest themselves in early life. He received his early lessons in mathematics from his father, a tradesman with an amateur interest in in mathematics and logic, but his favourite subject at school was classics. He was a quiet, serious and modest young man from a humble working class background, and largely self-taught in his mathematics (he would borrow mathematical journals from his local Mechanics Institute). But it was his contributions to the algebra of logic which were later to be viewed as immensely important and influential.
