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: 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.

Problems of the Month Problem solving is the cornerstone of doing mathematics. 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.

Welcome to the Mathematics Assessment Project “And I’m calling on our nation’s governors and state education chiefs to develop standards and assessments that don’t simply measure whether students can fill in a bubble on a test, but whether they possess 21st Century skills like problem solving and critical thinking and entrepreneurship and creativity.” President Obama, 1 March 2009. New for 2013: Ten new 'Classroom Challenge' formative assessment lessons for Middle School are now available, including the first five lessons for Grade 6 . A draft Brief Guide for teachers and administrators (PDF) is now available, and is recommended for anybody using the MAP Classroom Challenges for the first time. Project goals

Tarsia With this software you will easily be able to create, print out, save and exchange customised jigsaws, domino activities and a variety of rectangular card sort activities. The activities created using this software can be presented in printable form, ready to cut out. Formulator Tarsia known earlier as Formulator Jigsaw is an editor designed for Teachers of Mathematics creating the activities in a form of jigsaws or dominos etc for later use in a class. Data Analysis & Probability Games Featured Game: M & M Probability Game Data Analysis & Probability Games These activities support students as they conceptually develop a sense of how probability affects the outcome of games.

Probably Graphing Begin this activity by asking all students to stand up. Tell them you are going to flip a coin. If they think it is going to be heads, they are to put a hands on their head. If they think the coin is going to be tails, they are to put their hands behind their back. If they are correct, they remain standing, if they are incorrect, they sit down.

What Are My Chances? In this lesson, students will conduct 5 experiments. If you have enough dice, coins, and decks of cards, students can work in groups. Otherwise, set up 5 stations, 1 for each game of chance (before class). Groups will rotate through the room, so that each group gets a chance to visit all 5 stations. Begin class by showing students a coin, and tell them that they will be running experiments today and exploring probabilities. Factors and Multiples Jeopardy Game Factors and Multiples Jeopardy is a free online game for middle school students and teachers. The questions in this game focus on important concepts such as factors, multiples, prime factorization, GCF, and LCM. Important facts you should know that will help with this game. A number is divisible by its factors A number is divisible by 2 if the last digit is even. A number is divisible by 5 if its last digit is 0 or 5. A number is divisible by 3 if the sum of all of its digits is divisible by 3.

Stick or Switch? The Situation Pose the following situation to the students: During a certain game show, contestants are shown three closed doors. One of the doors has a big prize behind it, and the other two have junk behind them.
