Juice Box Geometry Key concepts Mathematics Geometry Psychology Introduction Juice boxes sure are convenient—just poke a straw in and sip away! But have you ever noticed that some juice boxes don't seem to have as much juice as others, even when they have a lot of packaging? Hate Math? These Mental Tricks Will Have You Multiplying Faster Than Einstein Ever Could! Hate Math? These Mental Tricks Will Have You Multiplying Faster Than Einstein Ever Could! That's about as much math as I can handle without a calculator on a daily basis. I literally hate doing math more than anything in life, mostly because I'm not good at it—and I hate doing things I'm not good at. So, when I come across a cool math trick online that claims to make life easier for folks like me, I'm all ears.

Reasoning and Sense Making Task Library Practices that support access and equity require comprehensive understanding and require being responsive to students’ backgrounds, experiences, cultural perspectives, traditions, and knowledge. Algebra is not confined to a course or set of courses but is a strand that unfolds across a pre-K–12 curriculum. Students need a strong mathematics foundation to succeed in STEM fields and to make sense of STEM-related topics in their daily lives. Interactive angles - Middle/High This activity allows manipulation and investigation of various types of angles. It can be used at a variety of different grade levels. At its most basic for teaching about types of angles, acute, obtuse or reflex. For more advanced use to create angle problems in which the missing letter angle values have to be found. You can click and drag the handles to change the angles and the values will updated.

Control Alt Achieve: 20 Chrome Extensions, Web Apps, and Add-ons for Math As awesome as Google tools are for students, teachers, and schools, sometimes they can lack a feature or tool you need for your specific subject area. A common area for this concern is in mathematics. Math teachers may sometimes feel that their content and specialized symbols aren’t always so easy to transfer over from the convenience of paper and pencil to the uniqueness of a digital environment. While no solution is even going to be perfect, the good news is that there are many digital tools that can be used in the Google Apps world on Chromebooks, PCs, and Macs, that help address the needs of math students and teachers. In this blog post we are going to highlight 21 such tools.

Interactive Fraction Wall explore Fractions Percentages and Decimals Fraction walls are a great way to teach about fractions and in particular equivalent fractions. In a fraction wall each row or layer of the wall represents one whole number. The layers are divided into a number of bricks and hence each brick represents a fraction whose denominator is equal to the number of bricks in that layer. Each brick can be turned on or off by clicking it. This wall also allows the display of decimal and percentage values. 14 Virtual Tools: Favorite Math Apps More and more classrooms are gaining access to technology that can be used with students. Whether you’re modeling a lesson, creating stations, or working in a one-to-one classroom, virtual tools can promote student engagement while increasing academic success. Here are some apps for iPads — along with a few other tips — that can transform your daily lessons and are definitely worth checking out!

Tackling a real-world maths problem In the final instalment of our three part series on the International Mathematical Modelling Challenge (IMMC), Ross Turner outlines the mathematical modelling framework and provides some practical advice on approaching the ‘jet lag’ problem set for the 2017 challenge. Strengthening the connection between mathematical knowledge and skills, and the ways in which they can be used, is a central objective of many approaches to mathematics teaching and learning. The IMMC provides a very direct opportunity to develop the relevant capabilities. It’s a team-based competition where up to four students from the same school are given five days to work on a modelling task (located in a real-world setting), write a report and submit it for evaluation.

River Crossing We know that and where means that would eat . The first trip has to be moving the hen to the other side of the river, since it is in both relationships. Otherwise the fox would eat it or it would eat the corn (if we moved the corn or fox respectively). Moving the hen over takes one move, and since it's pointless to bring the hen back (as we want a minimal solution) the farmer returns on his own. Now for move 3, his choice is arbritary, he can either take the fox (see Solution (i) below) or the corn (see Solution (ii) below). Solution (i) If he takes the fox on the third trip, then upon reaching the other side, the fox would eat the hen if he left them alone, so he is forced to take the hen back with him on his 4th trip.
