Math | Power Up What Works The Math Instructional Strategy Guides The Instructional Strategy Guides provide you with a pathway to learning. Each Guide focuses on key areas of Math: representation, reasoning, communication, and making sense of problems. It includes information about relevant Common Core State Standards, evidence-based practices, and ways to differentiate instruction with technology. How to Use The Math Instructional Strategy Guides Select and use materials to strengthen teaching and learning and Professional Development. Teach with Tech connects best practices to technology tools to personalize instruction for struggling students.Lessons in Action present a classroom example that brings the technology-enhanced strategies to life. N Ways to Apply Algebra to the New York Times This summer, the political scientist Andrew Hacker’s New York Times Op-Ed essay “Is Algebra Necessary?” set off a national debate on mathematics education. Here is how the essay begins: A typical American school day finds some six million high school students and two million college freshmen struggling with algebra. The debate inspired us to suggest several algebraic opportunities right here in the pages of The Times. 1. Use algebra to evaluate the housing market. Experiment with different home prices, different interest rates and different mortgage lengths to explore the impact of each variable on the resulting monthly mortgage payment. For a given house, explore questions like “How much would you end up paying over the entire term of the mortgage, and how does this compare to the value of the house?” Do you think it is more cost effective to rent an apartment or buy a house? 2. Check out how algebra is used to rank colleges. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Read Mr. Standards 2. 3. 3.

Quick Graph | Kz Labs Quick Graph plots high quality 2D and 3D mathematical expressions. Graphs can be shaded with custom colors and in 3D the lighting is enabled to demonstrate the depth of the surface. You can zoom in and out by pinching the image and pan around with one finger (2D) or two (3D). The 3D view allows for interactive rotation, translation and zooming by simple touch gestures. Quick Graph includes a wide variety of mathematical features and coordinate systems: Cartesian, Cylindrical and Spherical systems are supported for 3D equations, 2D equations support both Cartesian and Polar. All graphs are automatically saved / restored whenever the application is closed / open. Optional features Features

Go Maths The Math Forum @ Drexel University The Math Forum has a rich history as an online hub for the mathematics education community. A debt of gratitude is owed to the dedicated staff who created and maintained the top math education content and community forums that made up the Math Forum since its inception. NCTM will continue to make many of the most popular parts of the Math Forum content accessible to the mathematics education community. We hope that you will join or continue to be a member of the NCTM community to access even more high-quality resources for teaching and the learning of each and every student. Problems of the Week The Math Forum created Problems of the Week as an integrated program that features problems by standard and additional teacher support materials.
