Guest post by Susanna Westby One of the challenges in teaching math effectively, especially as student get older, is finding ways to make it meaningful to their experience.

Math Problems - They're Hiding in Every Story!

Teachers who have heard students complain, "Why do I need to know this? I will never use it," will know what I mean! One way to teach the relevance of math in an engaging way is to integrate your math and literature. Within every story there are math problems hiding - my job is to point them out and hopefully encourage students to find their own. When working with younger students, I simply point out the math I found in the stories we read together, and invite them to help me solve each problem. Below are several examples that I've used with my class using both fiction and non-fiction. The Three Little Pigs We use fairy tales to introduce the concept of making math stories. Quadratic Functions: Problem 1 (Part A) Public Lessons: Quadratic Functions. This lesson focuses on students making decisions about what tools to apply to solve different problems related to quadratic expressions and equations.

Public Lessons: Quadratic Functions

It is also intended to build awareness of the form an answer will take in order to help students make sense of the kind of problem they are solving. At the time of this lesson, students are nearing the end of a unit on quadratics in their Algebra classes. In that unit, they have developed tools for factoring expressions and solving quadratic equations using the zero product property and the Quadratic Formula, often guided by the question, “How can I make a quick sketch of this parabola?” A Maths Dictionary for Kids 2014 by Jenny Eather.

Why is this Common Core math problem so hard? Supporters respond to quiz that went viral. By Sarah Garland It may be the first time a math problem has gone viral on the Internet.

Why is this Common Core math problem so hard? Supporters respond to quiz that went viral

A frustrated father posted a subtraction problem from his second-grade son’s math quiz on Facebook this week with a note to the teacher calling it ridiculous. Conservative pundits, including Glenn Beck, seized on it as evidence that the new standards are nonsensical and “stupid,” adding more fuel to the backlash against the Common Core as it rolls out in schools across the country. (Photo: Facebook/The Patriot Post) The problem asks how Jack, a fictional student, miscalculated when he used a number line to find the answer to the subtraction problem 427 – 316. Critics say the problem takes a simple one-step subtraction problem and turns it into a complex endeavor with a series of unnecessary steps, including counting by 10s and 100s. So why is the problem so difficult? Edmodo. Dynamically Created Math Worksheets. 6 Useful Math Glossaries for Students.

Prepare for math puzzlers both solved and unsolvable, and even some still waiting for solutions. Ron Eglash: The fractals at the heart of African designs When Ron Eglash first saw an aerial photo of an African village, he couldn’t rest until he knew — were the fractals in the layout of the village a coincidence, or were the forces of mathematics and culture colliding in unexpected ways? Here, he tells of his travels around the continent in search of an answer. How big is infinity? There are more whole numbers than there are even numbers … right? Arthur Benjamin does “Mathemagic” A whole team of calculators is no match for Arthur Benjamin, as he does astounding mental math in the blink of an eye.

PBL that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Curriki Geometry is a great example of a course designed to make it easy for teachers to incorporate authentic projects into their class curriculum while demanding high expectations for students and addressing the goals of the common core. With over 375,000 members and over 53,000 resources for teachers, Curriki’s main website reaches an audience of educators across the globe – only 50% of members are from the United States. Since 2007, the website has offered teachers a global community to share materials and develop curriculum together. And now, as they continue to seek better ways to support the classroom teacher, Curriki has developed courses that weave these resources together into thoughtful, standards-based projects.

The course follows a mixed model of PBL, which values the student work as well as the prescribed content. Sharelatex/sharelatex. AoPS Videos.

" Sara Lindau on koulutukseltaan esikoulunopettaja ja luokanopettaja, ja hän on opiskellut matematiikkaa ja kasvatustiedettä pääaineinaan. Hän työskentelee Genarpin Häckebergan F2-alakoulussa, jossa on oppilaita esikouluikäisistä tokaluokkalaisiin. Sara opettaa 2. vuosikurssin oppilaita. Hän on myös mukana matematiikkahankkeessa, jonka tavoitteena on matematiikanopetuksen kehittäminen. – Kun pääsimme vastarakennettuun kouluun, saimme tilaisuuden sisustaa yhden tilan matematiikkapajaksi, ja lisäksi jokainen luokkahuone varustettiin kokeilevan matematiikan opetukseen tarvittavilla perustarvikkeilla.
