This Tuesday is Earth Day. Use this activity to demonstrate the various mappings of our 3-d Earth to a 2-d piece of paper. Students compare maps with this famous photo and check to see which characteristics are maintained and which are distorted. Clicking on this image will show a larger, expandable image in a new window. In honor of Earth Day we encourage you to show your classes the beauty of the Earth and remind everyone of one of the first times that it was seen in its entirety from space, December 7, 1972 from an Apollo mission.

Interactive Mathematics Miscellany and Puzzles Since May 6, 1997You are visitor number E66B7E in base 20 Raymond Smullyan, a Mathematician, Philosopher and author of several outstanding books of logical puzzles, tells, in one of his books, a revealing story. A friend invited him for dinner. He told Smullyan that his teenage son was crazy about Smullyan's books and could not wait to meet him.

What Makes A Good Resource Classroom resources alone cannot guarantee effective learning and teaching. But they do have the potential to trigger new approaches and behaviours – i.e. changes in our classroom. In this way good resources can provide a great source of professional development. The activities have been written and devised by real teachers determined to find better ways of teaching mathematical ideas and topics. You will find everything you need to teach the lesson and you will also get some insight into what the teacher wanted to achieve, how it went in practice and, often, an insight into a pedagogical issue and an opportunity to engage in some professional thinking yourself. Try some of the lessons that catch your eye and reflect on what it made you think about.

ELL - Independent vs. Dependent Variables In my last post I included some samples of student work (mini-posters). I decided to make a separate post to highlight the two mini-posters from my ELL students. These two students started out the semester and I was super worried about having them in my class. As best as I could tell, they weren't able to speak any English. I'm glad I was semi-wrong. Some of it was just shyness. Math Video - Free Math Help Study Your Way Easy Help. Fun Teachers.
