How Did the Months of the Year Get Their Names? Would you believe January was not always the first month of the year? The ancient Romans used a different calendar system, and their year began in March and ended in February! Even though our modern system may be quite different from the ancient Romans’, they gave us something very important: the months’ names. Let’s take a look at how the ancient Romans chose the names of the 12 months of the year. March: The ancient Romans insisted that all wars cease during the time of celebration between the old and new years. April: Three theories exist regarding the origin of April’s name. May: May was named after Maia, an earth goddess of growing plants. June: Apparently, June has always been a popular month for weddings! July: July was named after Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. August: August was named after Augustus Caesar in 8 B.C. Though we think of September, October, November and December as months 9, 10, 11 and 12, these months were 7, 8, 9 and 10 on the ancient Roman calendar.

Factors and Multiples Game This is a game for two players. The first player chooses a positive even number that is less than , and crosses it out on the grid. The second player chooses a number to cross out. Players continue to take it in turns to cross out numbers, at each stage choosing a number that is a factor or multiple of the number just crossed out by the other player. The first person who is unable to cross out a number loses. Here is an interactive version of the game in which you drag the numbers from the left hand grid and drop them on the right hand grid. Tablet version Install in home page Flash Version Alternatively, you can print out some 1-100 square grids. Printable NRICH Roadshow resources: Instructions + Grid in 2 parts here and here. An extension to the game, or a suitable activity for just one person, is suggested in the Possible extension in the Teachers' Notes.
The University of Arizona - Institute for Mathematics & Education The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards. It is important to produce up-to-date versions of the progressions documents. They can explain why standards are sequenced the way they are, point out cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly knotty areas of the mathematics. This project is organizing the writing of final versions of the progressions documents for the K–12 Common Core State Standards.

Khan Academy Multiplying Negatives Makes A Positive When We Multiply: Yes indeed, two negatives make a positive, and we will explain why, with examples! Signs Let's talk about signs. "+" is the positive sign, "−" is the negative sign. When a number has no sign it usually means that it is positive. And we can put () around the numbers to avoid confusion. Example: 3 × −2 can be written as 3 × (−2) Two Signs: The Rules Example: (−2) × (+5) The signs are − and + (a negative sign and a positive sign), so they are unlike signs (they are different to each other) So the result must be negative: Example: (−4) × (−3) The signs are − and − (they are both negative signs), so they are like signs (like each other) So the result must be positive: Why does multiplying two negative numbers make a positive? Well, first there is the "common sense" explanation: When I say "Eat!" But when I say "Do not eat!" Now if I say "Do NOT not eat!" So, two negatives make a positive, and if that satisfies you, then you don't need to read any more. Direction It is all about direction.
