Free Printable Math Worksheets For Kids STatistics Education Web (STEW) One of the goals of the American Statistical Association is to improve statistics education at all levels. Through the STatistics Education Web (STEW), the ASA is reaching out to K-12 mathematics and science teachers who teach statistics concepts in their classrooms. STEW is an online resource for peer-reviewed lesson plans for K-12 teachers. The web site is maintained by the ASA and accessible to K-12 teachers throughout the world. Statistics and probability concepts are included in K-12 curriculum standards, in particular the Common Core State Standards, and on state and national exams; however, few K-12 teachers have formal training or applied experience with statistical concepts. K-12 teachers need a place where they can find peer-reviewed teaching materials available in a standard format. STEW lesson plans identify both the statistical concepts being developed and the age range appropriate for its use. Lesson Plans Grades K - 5 Grades 6 - 8 Grades 9 - 12

[Time: 3:55] A Mathematical Fable It's not just the squares on the sides of right angles triangles that add up! Algebra Tutorials A brief explanationEven people who know how to deal with fractions actually prefer not to. Equations and inequalities are great when it comes to fractions because there is a way to get rid of them. This tutorial shows you how. Not only is it useful now, it is actually mandatory when you get to standard form linear equations. Eliminating FractionsThe steps for eliminating fractions are: Okay, so step 2 makes no sense yet. Step-by-Step ExamplesEXAMPLE: What did we just do? EXAMPLE: Sometimes it's confusing if we're not working with like things. EXAMPLE:TIPThe most common mistake in this process is when students only multiply the left side of the equation by the common denominator. ONLINE PRACTICENone.

A problem that you can’t solve in less than a day is usually a problem that is similar to one that you have solved before. But in real life, a problem is a situation that confronts you and you don’t have an idea of where to even start. If we want our students to be problem solvers and mathematically powerful, we must model perseverance and challenge students with non-routine problems. Administrators, teachers and parents should facilitate and support students in the process of attacking and reasoning about the problems. The solution is not as important as the process of problem solving. The educator or parent should not be impatient with the student’s struggle. The principal should embrace the concept of problem solving and model problem-solving leadership, being a facilitator of non-routine problems. Once the problem is presented to the students, the principal should be visible in facilitating the tasks alongside the teachers.
