How to write mathematics clearly by Matthew Leitch, 4 September 2009 Good reasons to write mathematics clearly If you read or write mathematics, at school, college, as a teacher, as a researcher, as an author - for any reason whatsoever - you may have noticed already that mathematical writing often isn't as clear as it might be. But however many opportunities you see for improvement the chances are there's much more than you realise today. The two main benefits of writing mathematics that is clearer and more interesting to read are as follows You will make fewer mistakes.You will have more readers and they will appreciate your work more. How many more readers? Not only do people read more of documents that are easier to read, but also they rate the contents and the author more highly. A message for people who find mathematics confusing If you find maths hard to understand let me reassure you that it is not entirely your fault. Why mathematical writing is often so hard to read Why things are changing Guidelines for clarity

Authentic Assessment Toolbox Home Page to the Authentic Assessment Toolbox, a how-to text on creating authentic tasks, rubrics, and standards for measuring and improving student learning. Inside, you will find chapters on A good place to start -- In this chapter I identify the characteristics, strengths and limitations of authentic assessment; compare and contrast it with traditional (test-based) assessment. Why has authentic assessment become more popular in recent years? When can it best serve assessment needs? After a brief overview, follow a detailed, four-step process for creating an authentic assessment. All good assessment begins with standards: statements of what we want our students to know and be able to do. Authentic assessments are often called "tasks" because they include real-world applications we ask students to perform. To assess the quality of student work on authentic tasks, teachers develop rubrics, or scoring scales. A guide to constructing good, multiple-choice tests, to complement your authentic assessments

TACCLE 2 - PT Proof Explorer - Home Page - Metamath The aleph null above is the symbol for the first infinite cardinal number, discovered by Georg Cantor in 1873 (see theorem aleph0). Metamath Proof Explorer Overview From this proposition it will follow, when arithmetical addition has been defined, that 1+1=2. —Principia Mathematica, Volume I, page 360. Inspired by Whitehead and Russell's monumental Principia Mathematica, the Metamath Proof Explorer has over 10,000 completely worked out proofs, starting from the very foundation that mathematics is built on and eventually arriving at familiar mathematical facts and beyond. Essentially everything that is possible to know in mathematics can be derived from a handful of axioms known as Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory, which is the culmination of many years of effort to isolate the essential nature of mathematics and is one of the most profound achievements of mankind. The Metamath Proof Explorer starts with these axioms to build up its proofs. How Metamath Proofs Work Look at Step 2 of the proof. .

Webnode EDU | Mathematics resources - or That's Great!: Why Not MOOseums? I have been interested in museums for a long time, with a special concern for museum effectiveness in offering open, informal or free-choice learning for the visitor. I've recently written about this (Barr 2013: online at "There are plenty of fascinating things about museums. But that museum focus has been almost entirely onsite. "In spite of the speed with which museums embraced the world wide web, few of them seem to have become equally enthusiastic about the prospect of expanding their on-site educational activities into the online environment. Combining the museum mandate with the learning potential of MOOCs, especially cMOOCs, seems to me like a natural. All one would need is for existing museum education staff to gain some familiarity with cMOOC structure and develop some facility with digital literacy. The connectivist learning opportunities offered through cMOOCs offer a whole new dimension to museum learning.
