Christmas Candy Cane Estimation You may have seen my previous post about estimating with markers. These are my candy cane estimation jars for Christmas. As you can see, I use 4 jars. Cageless Thinking: Innovation and Creativity in Education Over the last year I have lost count of the number of times I have heard someone say to me that their school, or a school they know has purchased X number of (usually, but not exclusively) iPads but they weren’t sure why, they didn’t know what the goal was and they weren’t sure what they were supposed to be doing with them. A number of schools buy a test set of devices, maybe even as many as 50 or 100, and when you ask their staff what the next move is, they don’t know. These examples do not enhance the teaching and learning in a school and it is probably fair to say that the energy and drive that might initially result in this early purchase can be lost. There are really two things to remember when you are at the start of this journey:

Most glyphs are similar to hand-written letters (a, g, t, etc.)' Using Dot Cards to Build Number Sense - Math Coach's Corner “…that ability to ‘just see it’ without counting is called subitizing.” (Van de Walle)There’s no doubt about it…subitizing is all the rage! It’s not a new concept, though. According to Wikipedia the phrase was first used in 1949. So why are we just hearing about it now? My theory is that the popularity of subitizing is directly related to the implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, which stress conceptual understanding and number sense over rote memorization of mathematical procedures and facts.Not surprisingly, John Van de Walle’s books have featured activities related to subitizing for many years.
Common Core in Action: Math in the Middle School Classroom Aligning instruction to meet the Common Core State Standards is the new norm for educators across most of the United States. In the middle school math classroom, technology can be used to help students reach mastery of these Common Core skills. Let's take a look at a sixth grade geometry standard and how, using technology, teachers can promote engagement through student-centered exploration of this skill. CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.A.3 Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

Musicians have sharper minds, study says Researchers measured the behavioural and brain responses of musicians when performing simple musical tasks. Even playing an instrument at a moderate level improved a person's ability to detect errors and adjust their responses. Musicians also responded faster than those without musical training.
