21 GIFs That Explain Mathematical Concepts “Let's face it; by and large math is not easy, but that's what makes it so rewarding when you conquer a problem, and reach new heights of understanding.” Danica McKellar As we usher in the start of a new school year, it’s time to hit the ground running in your classes! Slido Today we are launching Slido for Education, a package of integrations and features tailored specifically to the needs of lecturers. The aim of Slido for Education is to help lecturers stay connected with their students by powering two-way interactions during their virtual or live classes. We planned to announce our new offering at SXSW EDU this week and we are very sorry that such a great event had to be canceled last minute due to COVID-19. Many schools are facing similar challenges now, being forced to cancel classes or move them online.
The Secret to Finding ‘Aha’ Moments in Math Class After several decades of experimentation with technology in schools, we continue to face fundamental questions: What role should technology have in the classroom? How often should it be used? What are the opportunities for technology to transform both teaching and learning? As the CEO of Woot Math and previously of Kerpoof, I have spent the last ten years grappling with questions like these. Resourceaholic This page lists recommended resources for teaching Pure Mathematics in Year 12 (based on the 2017 A level specification), categorised by topic.

Before You Assign That Homework – What Students Wish You Knew “Should teachers assign homework?” was the question I asked my students today. I thought I knew the answer, a resounding no I was sure, and yet, once again my 7th graders surprised me. While some pleaded for no more homework, many said they understood the purpose of it, that it was a necessary component of school and then wrote a paragraph asking for change. Asking for their thoughts to be considered.
Exploring Geometry by Coding With @gosphero & @tickleapp In this article I would like to dissect the Math curriculum here in Ontario and focus on the process of mathematics. From the Ontario curriculum document: Problem Solving Problem solving is central to learning mathematics. Art - Home Learning This was the last photo I took of my students in the art room before our long separation from one another due to COVID-19. It was the day before the Chinese New Year and all of the students wore festive attire to celebrate. As we said goodbye to the students before the week-long holiday break, no one had any idea how different the new year ahead was going to be.
KS5 – BossMaths.com This is a relatively new section of the site, and as such is still growing. The resources here are not designed to substitute for a good textbook—which most sixth-formers tend to have access to anyway. The content here instead centres around dynamic interactive applets with three main purposes in mind: conveying concepts more clearly than is possible with static diagrams on a page or a slide;offering several question generators that can be used in class to develop fluency e.g. through use of guidance fading, material for mini-whiteboard or oral questioning; andproviding step-by-step procedural guides for students.

The Teacher Who Believes Math Equals Love : NPR Ed What makes a great teacher great? That's the question at the heart of 50 Great Teachers, from the NPR Ed Team. For her trigonometry class, Sarah Hagan (center) uses everything but the kitchen sink: a flower pot, garbage basket, rolls of tape, rubber balls, even loose spaghetti. Elissa Nadworny/NPR hide caption Hapara Hosted by: Beth Still, Professional Learning Coordinator, HāparaWebinar date: Monday, March 16, 2020Webinar time: 10AM PST Join us for a webinar on how to keep teaching and learning going even when schools are forced to close. Beth will cover ways to create a flexible home learning environment, maintain teacher-student communication and different ways that you can use the Hāpara Instructional Suite for at-home learning. The Tech Edvocate’s List of 59 Math Apps, Tools & Resources Math is known to be one of the most boring subjects in kids’ eyes. So, how can teachers make learning math more interactive and more fun? True, teachers can make up games to teach a math concept that involves every student. But, when teachers need to help students in small groups or one-on-one, how can they make sure that other students are actively practicing math skills? One of the great aspects of having tablets in the classroom is the availability educational apps. With these apps, students can individually learn, practice, and have fun with different subjects and concepts.
