10 classroom routines that get kids talking (and writing) about math strategies Most kids find it challenging to explain how they solve math problems and to put what they know about math into words. These ten simple classroom routines can help make math talk a regular part of your day: 1) Start your math block with a strategizing session instead of a traditional warm-up problem. Dynamic Paper Modes You can create the following: Nets – two-dimensional outlines of three-dimensional shapes, including regular polyhedra, prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones Graph Paper – coordinate graphs, polar coordinates, logarithmic graph paper Number Lines – including positive and negative coordinates Number Grids – hundreds boards and the like Tessellations – tiling patterns involving triangles, quadrilaterals, and hexagons Shapes – pattern blocks, attribute blocks, and color tiles Spinners – up to 16 sectors, with adjustable sizes

Teaching Math to People Who Think They Hate It A popular Cornell professor tries to help language-arts types learn how to "make math" instead of just studying it. The author's son and husband take the scalene triangle challenge. (Jessica Lahey ) Math has never been my strong suit. I opted out of it at every turn, particularly in college, where I enrolled in linguistics to fulfill my quantitative reasoning requirement. I even tried to overcome my aversion by taking a second whack at Algebra in my forties, but sadly, I still hand restaurant bills to my husband when it’s time to calculate the tip, and have long since given up on helping my teenage son with his Algebra II homework.

A Designer Speaks Abstract This paper describes some of the research-based principles that I use when designing learning experiences to foster conceptual understanding. These principles are illustrated through the discussion of one type of experience: that of sorting multiple representations. I refer to learning experiences rather than tasks, because tasks are only one component of the design. Close attention is also paid to the role of the teacher in creating an appropriate climate for learning to take place. After a brief excursion into my own theoretical framework, I describe the educational objectives behind my design and provide a detailed explanation of it in one topic, that of algebraic notation.

High School Math Teacher Profile - Dave Sladskey On Dave Sladkey's first day of teaching high school math, his school recommended him two things – don't smile, and don't let the kids out of their seats. Since then though, Sladkey has largely shunned that bit of advice. “I try to have them smile as much as possible and try to get them out of their seats as much as possible, so it's quite the change from then to now,” Sladkey said.

One Week to Math Centers! - Tina's Teaching Treasures Sep30 Hi there! So I am getting my kiddos started on Math Centers---Yeehaw! I am very excited for many reasons #1- it means I can meet with small groups more frequently and efficiently, #2 The students enjoy them and it helps round out their math learning with lots of active practice #3 Once the centers are set up, there is mess weekly prep/marking for me #4 I love my math centers and am proud to show them off and share them with a new group of littles! I wanted to cram it all in as quickly as possible (Without overwhelming of course...) so I mapped out my week carefully, balanced carpet time with crafting time with talking time and have developed my 'one week to math centers'. Of course after one week we won't be 'perfect' on our routines yet- that is okay!

I ♥ mathematics {platonic solids garland} Oooh….it’s been I while since I last posted. We had a smashing Christmas and new year. Hope you all did too! My computer died just before Christmas and it’s taken my hubby and I a while to bring it back to life…which is why it’s been a bit quiet. I lost 3 months worth of work (new years resolution no.33 = backup files more regularly!).
