Using Bitstrips To Create Interactive Comic Math Problems Recently, I have been working with staff on integrating Bitstrips For Schools into their classrooms. Most of the ideas that were discussed involved using Bitstrips for literacy, social studies, history, health, and even science. However, math never really entered the discussion.
Dmitry Grinberg Apr 16, 2012, 2am PDT: Small schematic fix (SD card's SCK & VDD were switched) Apr 3, 2012, 1am PDT: new source code archive uploaded. Sped up emulator (6.5KHz->10KHz) using FPM mode on RAM & changed icache config, updated porting guide, included kernel image & new smaller ramdisk, new full image Mar 29, 2012, 7pm PDT: new source code archive uploaded. It has a fixed Makefile and now includes a porting guide to help you port it to other boards/CPUs
Exploring Slopes, Intercepts and Meanings This is an activity that I created to help students with understanding slopes, slope-intercept form and breaking down the meanings of verbal descriptions when working with problems involving rates of change. File Type: SMART Notebook Math Tools lesson Subject: Mathematics Grade: Grade 8, Grade 9, Grade 10 Date submitted: November 7, 2011 Search terms: high school math, slope, equations, math tools, y-intercept, algebra, secondary math Prototype Summative Assessment Tests About these tests The purpose of these is to provide examples of the type of tests students should be able to tackle, if the aspirations of the Common Core State Standards are to be realized. The methodology of the tests and their balance of different task types is discussed in more detail here. Note: please bear in mind that these materials are still in draft and unpolished form. What tests are available?
5 Best Apps for Math and Counting As a follow up to my post about writing apps (which you can click here to see) I thought I’d share some of the math and counting apps we’ve discovered. Again, it’s been challenging to find the few jewels among the plain old rocks. I really hadn’t realized how many apps were out there, nor how terrible some of them could be! Robotic Xylophone With the holiday season approaching, we are always looking for a way to add a little Christmas spirit to our office. This year, we thought it would be awesome to have a musical instrument that we could control with a NerdKits microcontroller kit, and have it play holiday music. Keeping true with the NerdKits spirit, we decided to build a xylophone, build the whole thing from scratch, and teach about solenoids and shift registers along the way! Our homemade xylophone was a great way to put our milling machine to use cutting the bars for each note, and using the lathe for the solenoid forms and steel slugs. We made our xylophone from aluminum bars -- all 6061 aluminum alloy rectangular bars, with a 1.5" x 0.375" cross-section.
Walking in Mathland Yes. The answer is yes you can study mathematics. There is apparently a rumor going around telling students that math cannot be studied.
