Copyleft Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le symbole du copyleft, avec un C « inversé » (tourné à gauche), est l'« opposé » du copyright (C tourné à droite). En 2009, il n'est pas reconnu comme symbole légal. Le copyleft[Note 1] est l'autorisation donnée par l'auteur d'un travail soumis au droit d'auteur (œuvre d'art, texte, programme informatique ou autre) d'utiliser, d'étudier, de modifier et de diffuser son œuvre, dans la mesure où cette même autorisation reste préservée. L'auteur refuse donc que l'évolution possible de son travail soit accompagnée d'une restriction du droit à la copie, à l'étude, ou à de nouvelles évolutions. Jeu de mots et traductions[modifier | modifier le code] Le terme copyleft est un jeu de mot construit par opposition au terme copyright. L'idée suggérée par Copyleft est donc laisser copier, en opposition avec copyright (Droit de reproduction/d'auteur).

Place Value Mats Ten-Frame Mat Math mats help students organize materials in a mathematically meaningful way. They may also serve as prompts to reinforce mathematical concepts and skills. For example, ten-frame mat help young students organize objects by tens, reinforcing that important place value concept of our base-ten number system. It is developmentally appropriate to have students begin with ungrouped materials (e.g. unifix cubes, beans, etc.) and place one object in each square of the ten frame to create a ten. Double Ten-Frame Mat Next, students use a double ten-frame mat to model numbers from 1-20. The teen numbers are notoriously hard for kindergarten students. Finally, ask students to name the number represented and either write the number (if inserted in a sheet protector) or select the appropriate number card. Tens-Ones Mat Later on, students transition to the tens-ones mat with ten frames in the ones place to build upon the ten-frame skills and introduce the tens place. Please select a topic:

Open source Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. La désignation open source, ou « code source ouvert », s'applique aux logiciels (et s'étend maintenant aux œuvres de l'esprit) dont la licence respecte des critères précisément établis par l'Open Source Initiative, c'est-à-dire les possibilités de libre redistribution, d'accès au code source et de création de travaux dérivés. Mis à la disposition du grand public, ce code source est généralement le résultat d'une collaboration entre programmeurs. L’open source a déjà investi tous les grands domaines du système d’information des administrations françaises[1] : environnements serveurs, domaines applicatifs, outils d’ingénierie, solutions de réseaux et sécurité. « Préhistoire »[modifier | modifier le code] Les ordinateurs des années 1960 étaient livrés avec des logiciels accompagnés de leurs sources que les clients pouvaient modifier et étendre.

Hanif Writing in Mathematics Featured Topic: Writing in Math Class Teachers incorporate writing in math class to help students reflect on their learning, deepen their understanding of important concepts by explaining and providing examples of those concepts, and make important connections to real-life applications of the math they are learning. Teachers use the writing assignments to assess student understanding of important concepts, student proficiency in explaining and using those concepts and each student's attitude toward learning mathematics. Writing in mathematics is a win-win for both teacher and student. Although it may be difficult to introduce this practice, it is well worth the effort. Getting Started with Math Writing Often students who have difficulty writing in math class have less difficulty telling the teacher what they think. Think-Pair-Share: Some students are reluctant to write at first and benefit from practice sharing thoughts with a partner and hearing that partner put thoughts into words.

Paparan.. Kay Toliver: Math and Communication Math and Communication by Kay Toliver Before I taught mathematics in grades 7 and 8 at East Harlem Tech, I taught all of the other elementary grades, starting with the first and gradually moving up through each grade, one at a time. It may have been this background which led me to want to use mathematics instruction to develop my students' communication skills, because I saw that, for all students in all grades, communication skills were among the most important abilities that I could help them to develop. Over the years I have learned that there are two sides to this coin. Not only can I use math class to develop children's abilities to speak, read, write and listen, but by stressing these communication activities I am able to be a better mathematics teacher. By encouraging students to speak up in class, to explain their reasoning, and to define the words that we are using, I learn a great deal about how well they understand the lesson. Make it easy for students to speak up.
