New Algebra 1 (CCSS) section OPEN (partially) The Algebra 1 section is partially open. Please understand that the unlinked topic areas are still under development. Links followed by the letter "P" are currently password protected as they are getting ready to open once the final touches have been made and the proof reading is accomplished. When completed, the site will include all standards from the CCSS, with special considerations to the PARCC MCF and SBAC.

Math Cache Directions - "Geocaching" (pronounced "geo cashing") is the sport of using GPS systems to locate hidden boxes at different geographical locations across the country. Directions and clues are left in the boxes to aid in the journey. In the spirit of geocaching, we have created activities called "MathCaching" which use the internet to find hidden boxes to reveal clues to the continuation of the games. Your success at "MathCaching" is dependent upon your skills at solving mathematical problems. The MathCaching games are subject area dependent. There are free versions of MathCaching for Basic Math Skills ("BasicCaching"), Algebra ("AlgeCaching"), Geometry ("GeoCaching"), Algebra2 (Alge2Caching), Trig ("TrigCaching"), PreCalculus ("PreCalcuCaching"), Calculus ("CalcuCaching") and TI-84+ Caching.

Fun Maths printable worksheets > geometry worksheets & problems Below are a number of worksheets covering Euclidian Geometry problems. Geometry is the study of shape, size, position and space. It is after the Greek mathematician Euclid who around 300BC made a list of objects and assumptions (called axioms) from which all results follow. High school math students can use these geometry problems for study purposes.

MathNEXUS: Mathematics Portal For the past 29 years, I have taught a mathematics history course, and was even the creator of the course at my university. During this time, I have learned not only a great amount of the history of mathematics, but also have gained experience on how to integrate math history ideas into my normal teaching of mathematics. In an attempt to share some of this gained knowledge and experiences, I now announce the release of a new website Teaching Mathematics History. AIMS Puzzle Corner: Free Math Puzzles This week’s Puzzle Corner activity is a magic trick with a mathematical, as well as a slight-of-hand, component. I first came across this trick in one of Martin Gardner’s many books on recreational mathematics. I liked it so much that I have been stumping students, friends, and family members with it ever since.

CCSS HS FUNCTIONS RESOURCES!!! - GeoGebra Teachers: It is my hope that these resources help empower your students to actively (and regularly) discover the fascinating world of mathematics around them. Students: It is my hope that these resources help you discover & help reinforce mathematics concepts in a way that makes sense to you. I would like to express a HUGE THANK YOU toAnthony C.M.OrandSteve Phelps, whose work also appears in this project. For questions, suggestions, and/or comments, feel free to e-mail me at any time. I wish you much success in your journey of teaching and/or learning mathematics!

Illuminations Coin Box Pre-K-2, 3-5 Learn how to count, collect, exchange, and make change for coins by manipulating coins using an array representation. Deep Sea Duel This strategy game requires you to select cards with a specified sum before your opponent (also available on iOS and Android). CME Project About the Program. The CME Project, developed by EDC’s Center for Mathematics Education and published by Pearson, is a coherent, four-year, NSF-funded high school mathematics program designed around how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics: the themes of algebra, geometry, and analysis. The CME Project sees these branches of mathematics not only as compartments for certain kinds of results, but also as descriptors for methods and approaches—the habits of mind that determine how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics itself. As such, they deserve to be centerpieces of a curriculum, not its by-products. The Program’s Structure.

Introduction to Geometry More than 2000 years ago, long before rockets were launched into orbit or explorers sailed around the globe, a Greek mathematician measured the size of the Earth using nothing more than a few facts about lines, angles, and circles. This course will start at the very beginnings of geometry, answering questions like "How big is an angle?" and "What are parallel lines?" and proceed up through advanced theorems and proofs about 2D and 3D shapes. Along the way, you'll learn a few different ways to find the area of a triangle, you'll discover a shortcut for counting the number of stones in the Great Pyramid of Giza, and you'll even come up with your own estimate for the size of the Earth. Coping With Math Anxiety What Is Math Anxiety? A famous stage actress was once asked if she had ever suffered from stage-fright, and if so how she had gotten over it. She laughed at the interviewer’s naive assumption that, since she was an accomplished actress now, she must not feel that kind of anxiety. She assured him that she had always had stage fright, and that she had never gotten over it. Instead, she had learned to walk on stage and perform—in spite of it. Like stage fright, math anxiety can be a disabling condition, causing humiliation, resentment, and even panic.

Statistics with R Warning Here are the notes I took while discovering and using the statistical environment R. However, I do not claim any competence in the domains I tackle: I hope you will find those notes useful, but keep you eyes open -- errors and bad advice are still lurking in those pages... Should you want it, I have prepared a quick-and-dirty PDF version of this document. The old, French version is still available, in HTML or as a single file. You may also want all the code in this document.

Introduction to Algebra We live in a world of numbers. You see them every day: on clocks, in the stock market, in sports, and all over the news. Algebra is all about figuring out the numbers you don't see. You might know how fast you can throw a ball, but can you use this number to determine how far you can throw it? You might keep track of stock prices, but how can you figure out how much money you've made (or lost) in the market? And you may already know how to tell time, but can you calculate at what times a clock's hour and minute hands are exactly aligned?
