Calculate Linear Regression and Graph Scatter Plot and Line of Best Fit What is simple linear regression? Simple linear regression is a way to describe a relationship between two variables through an equation of a straight line, called line of best fit, that most closely models this relationship. A common form of a linear equation in the two variables x and y isy=mx+b where m and b designate constants. Coping With Math Anxiety What Is Math Anxiety? A famous stage actress was once asked if she had ever suffered from stage-fright, and if so how she had gotten over it. She laughed at the interviewer’s naive assumption that, since she was an accomplished actress now, she must not feel that kind of anxiety.

9 Terrific STEM Teaching Resources Every now and then, we get an unexpected surprise from someone as interested in supporting teachers and students as we are. When this happens, it usually means someone has gone out of their way to research and produce a valuable list of incredible online resources for use in education, and done a great job of doing so. I’m happy to say it’s happened yet again. We recently received a list of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) links from Jasmine Dyoco at EducatorLabs. BP Challenge is a hands-on competition where students work as a team using simple materials to solve problems. Once known as the BP Technology Challenge, the BP Challenge has strong links to New Zealand's technology, science and mathematics curriculum and other curriculum areas. Over the past 21 years, many hundreds of thousands of students have taken part in Regional BP Challenge events, inter-school challenges, school-wide challenges and class challenges.

untitled The GNU operating system is a complete free software system, upward-compatible with Unix. GNU stands for “GNU's Not Unix”. Richard Stallman made the Initial Announcement of the GNU Project in September 1983. A longer version called the GNU Manifesto was published in March 1985. It has been translated into several other languages. CME Project About the Program. The CME Project, developed by EDC’s Center for Mathematics Education and published by Pearson, is a coherent, four-year, NSF-funded high school mathematics program designed around how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics: the themes of algebra, geometry, and analysis. The CME Project sees these branches of mathematics not only as compartments for certain kinds of results, but also as descriptors for methods and approaches—the habits of mind that determine how knowledge is organized and generated within mathematics itself. As such, they deserve to be centerpieces of a curriculum, not its by-products. The Program’s Structure. The CME Project uses the traditional American structure of algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, and precalculus.

STEM Resources Welcome to the STEM page, sponsored by YALSA's STEM Task Force. We hope you will use this wiki page to get ideas on how to effectively integrate STEM into your library programs and services. And what is STEM you ask? STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and is one of the hottest topics in education and library circles. STEM programming is one way to engage teens in your library and encourage learning and exploration in new ways. We think this page is a good start on STEM resources, but we need your help to make it great.

The Internet can be a gold mine for teachers across all subjects and grade levels, but today we are focused on math and science teachers in search of free activities and materials to enrich their classes and save a little time. Whether you're looking for innovative ideas on how to demonstrate difficult mathematical concepts or excite your students with low-cost lab experiments, we've compiled a list with some of the best free resources for math and science classrooms. Take a look, and let us know via email if you think we should add anything! Part of the Verizon Foundation's education resource platform, Thinkfinity, Illuminations was developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics to provide lesson plans and classroom activities for math teachers everywhere.

MathVIDS! Home Welcome to MathVIDS! A Resource for Teaching Mathematics to Struggling Learners MathVIDS is an interactive website for teachers who are teaching mathematics to struggling learners made possible through funding by the Virginia Department of Education. STEM Resources for Teachers Connecting with the millennial generation, our current K-12 students, means a new way to teach and introduce material. Tech savvy Millennials love learning that is individually adapted to them with just enough detail that is needed at that particular moment in time. While very motivated and goal-oriented, Millennials want to learn in a team-oriented environment.

Copyright Agency Limited - Rights Portal Frequently Asked Questions Do I need a licence? RightsPortal Journals Find out more Copyright Info Pages MathNEXUS: Mathematics Portal For the past 29 years, I have taught a mathematics history course, and was even the creator of the course at my university. During this time, I have learned not only a great amount of the history of mathematics, but also have gained experience on how to integrate math history ideas into my normal teaching of mathematics. In an attempt to share some of this gained knowledge and experiences, I now announce the release of a new website Teaching Mathematics History. It is a collection of materials directed at either teaching a math history class or including math history ideas in other math courses.
