Welcome to the Mathematics Assessment Project News New – TRU Math: Teaching for Robust Understanding of Mathematics is a suite of tools for professional develompent and research - the alpha versions of these documents are available here… More International Awards for Team: Hugh Burkhardt and Malcolm Swan, leaders of the Shell Centre team, have been chosen by the International Commission on Mathematical instruction (ICMI) as the first recipients of the Emma Castelnuovo Medal for Excellence in the Practice of Mathematics Education. This complements the award by ICMI to Alan Schoenfeld of the 2011 Felix Klein Medal for Lifetime Achievement in research.

Fibonacci in Nature The Fibonacci numbers play a significant role in nature and in art and architecture. We will first use the rectangle to lead us to some interesting applications in these areas. We will construct a set of rectangles using the Fibonacci numbers 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and 34 which will lead us to a design found in nature. You will need a ruler, protractor, and compass. Start by drawing two, unit squares (0.5 cm is suggested) side by side. Next construct a 2-unit by 2-unit square on top of the two, unit squares.
AS & A-Level Maths - StudyWell AS & A-Level Maths - StudyWell What is A-Level Maths? In England, Wales & Northern Ireland, students can study for an A-Level in Maths between the ages of 16-19. A-Level is the term given to a General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level. The A-Level is spread across 2 years; if students wish to finish studying after 1 year they may do so and provided they have performed sufficiently well in their first year exams, they will finish with an AS-Level (Advanced Subsidiary Level). Across the 2 years, students will study a combination of Core modules (e.g. Department of Mathematics at University of California Berkeley Online Calculus Diagnostic Placement Examination Project The Online Mathematics Diagnostic Placement Examination Project is a joint effort by Professors James A. Sethian, Theodore A. Slaman, and W.
Factorization of Quadratic Expressions with Negative Coefficients ( Read ) What if you had a quadratic expression like or in which some or all the coefficients were negative? How could you factor that expression? After completing this Concept, you'll be able to factor quadratic expressions like these for various negative coefficient values. Great Math Games Resources for Teachers and Students Some of you have asked for resources on Math games. I have had a look at the archive and come up with the list below. The websites below are a good starting point when looking for challenging and interactive math games for your students and kids. The common thing among all the titles mentioned below is that they are free, student friendly and have a user responsive interface. Check them out and let me know if you use other resources for math games. Enjoy
Question Sets - A Level Maths Resource Site A Level Maths Resource Site Elegance articulated. A WHITE GROUP MATHEMATICS SUPPLEMENTARY WEBSITE Compilation A 1. Balanced Assessment in Mathematics School districts and states across the US are engaged in a process of standards-based reform built around the Common Core State Standards. They recognize that progress in most classrooms depends on their assessment program matching the new and broader curriculum goals, focused on students’ developing the expertise described in the mathematical practices. This means moving to include performance assessment. The Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) works with districts and states on the design and implementation of performance assessment, and on professional development for designers and teachers. The aim is to help the local leadership develop local capacity to meet local needs.
MainPage A - Level Teaching Activities “By the end of the course, I want the students to feel as though they *invented* calculus…” THAT is the feeling we’re looking for, is it not? So I’d prefer to focus on the story of the learner’s *discovery* of the topic… rather than a story *about* the topic. The resources found by clicking on the links above are intended to present a range of activities and approaches to enrich the experiences of both students and teachers. If I have unknowingly used a resource which is copyright or I haven't credited the author then please email me at email@example.com and I will correct this oversight.
Using Performance Assessment to Improve Math Learning Nearly 30 California districts are using a set of common performance tasks to guide professional development and improve teaching and learning in mathematics. The tasks focus on student understanding and the ability to transfer knowledge to new tasks. The districts undertook this effort in part to counter the harmful effects of the state’s standardized tests, which are not good measures of mathematical reasoning. The success of the collaborative shows the value and feasibility of performance assessments. The Silicon Valley Mathematics Assessment Collaborative (MAC) first mapped out the five core ideas on which it would focus across the grade levels.
