eRiding - Mathematics & Numeracy - Secondary Mathematics & Numeracy - Secondary Resources ' In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them. '- Johann von Neumann (1903 - 1957) Materials to support teaching and learning have been developed and will continue to be developed and displayed on this site. Introduction to the Resources Visual Number animated explorer,learn division,square & triangular The number explorer allows demonstration of the properties of any positive whole number of reasonable size. You can use large numbers, however in practice numbers up to 100 work best for showing division properties. Three different shapes can be used, the original fish swim around and obediently arrange themselves to show number properties. However balls or cards cards can be used instead, these animate faster and are better for displaying numbers.

Entrance rates into maths and science degrees at university level can also be traced back to the impacts of teachers' gender bias in primary school. Higher levels of mathematics and science education have been linked to greater employment opportunities and higher earnings, meaning a primary teacher’s attitude towards maths can have a serious impact on a child’s future success. Teachers assume boys are better at maths The researchers followed nearly 3000 students from 6th grade to the end of high school. As a measure of teacher bias, they compared school 6th grade test marks given by teachers who knew the students' sex, with external test marks for the same students, but with no identifying characteristics provided.

Math Survey – Students I am taking Justin Lanier’s call to action from his talk “Beyond Beauty” at the Global Math Department. I posted over the weekend about the results of my survey of teachers and staff at my school. Today, I gave it to my students.

Students collect survey and measurement data, construct bar graphs, and discuss distributions and measures of central tendency in order to figure out whether shoe companies should necessarily be selling their products in same-size pairs.
