If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my weekly newsletter. Thanks for visiting!

Elevator Pitch Using Google Maps.Maths activities in different places around the world.One location, one maths topic, one map.Activities explained in placemarks in Google Maps.Placemarks geotagged to the maths it refers to. Some background Four years ago I created Google Earth resources for the classroom and posted them to the GE Community Forum. The only issue with Google Earth is that it is restrictive in two ways.

לימוד מתמטיקה LearntubeApplying mathematics (Times Article)One of the questions every mathematics teacher is regularly asked is “When are we ever going to use these things?” This is probably the hardest question to answer in a satisfactory manner! We talk about the applications of mathematics in physics, engineering and computer science. It is today becoming more important for students to attain a higher level of numerical literacy - Christina Zarb Since I deal with many IT students, my favourite answer is “Google! Of course we can, many should be thinking. Mathematics is a compulsory subject throughout primary and secondary education – it is considered, and rightly so, a core subject throughout these highly important formation years, and a pass at Ordinary level is fundamental in order to continue one’s studies at post-secondary and tertiary level. After secondary school, students have to choose which combination of Advanced and Intermediate level subjects to pursue, keeping in mind the University degree they would like to read for.

As of March 2011, there are 102 students in my Facebook group. In the semester I implemented Facebook, I had a total of 113 students. I implemented Facebook, mostly, to my Math 20 Pure classes which totaled 92 students. During the semester, I assigned specific questions that needed to be answered using the math discussion group. Each student was given a slip of paper with different function notations on it. Another example from my Math 31 class: As a class we graphed 3 functions from their equations. These tasks were not required to be completed on Facebook; I did still allow for students to complete these tasks the “traditional” way, on paper and hand it in to me in class. For some students who did not have the necessary technology at home, I provided my own classroom computer to use Facebook. Students used this site above and beyond expectations.
