eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This instructional guide, one product of a large-scale research project on Jaime Escalante and his Mathematics and Science Program, describes the teaching and motivating strategies that he uses to bring about high academic achievement among poor minority urban youth in Los Angeles (California). The first part of five describes a pilot test in which a colleague and an administrator who have worked with and observed Escalante rated a list of successful techniques according to the degree to which they explained Escalante’s teaching success. Part 2 describes the responses of senior high school students who had been Escalante’s students for 3 or 4 years to a similar questionnaire. Part 3 shows the results of a similar rating process by several of Escalante’s colleagues, which found a 74 percent… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: Items in the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory’s (NCREL) School Development Library series are multimedia packages consisting of print, video, audio, and CD-ROM resources designed to support educators in their efforts to improve classroom instruction. This particular set consists of a 40-minute video and a printed booklet focusing on Linda Hallenbeck, a fifth-grade teacher. The video of her classroom shows her teaching a math lesson on probability incorporating coin flipping, spinner spinning, and die throwing. The lesson is a combination of whole group and small group hands-on, collaborative activities. The teacher asks probing questions to help children formulate their ideas about probability and encourages the children to express their reasoning and to listen carefully to each other. The lesson emphasizes that mathematics is about solving everyday, real-life… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: MATHCO is a motivating series of audiovisual and print materials designed to overcome the negative effects of sex bias and stereotyping on the attitudes, interests, and aspirations of girls toward mathematics and mathematics-related careers. The materials teach mathematics skills, demonstrate relationships between mathematics and other subjects, and provide exposure to mathematics-related careers. They are useful for boys as well as girls at the pre- and early-adolescent stage; they are both multiethnic and nonsexist in text and illustrations. Module 2 focuses on patterns, sequences, and equations in language and fine arts as well as in mathematics. The audiovisual script is included, followed by suggested activities and activity work.

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This is the teacher’s guide to an easy-to-read, slower paced mathematics text designed for students who have learning, reading, and language problems. Basic concepts and skills about decimals and percents, including computation with decimals and using proportions to solve percent problems, are presented. All 10 units begin with a brief discussion of how decimals or percents are used in real life. Lessons teach only one major concept on each page, and include comprehension exercises. Sixty-five duplicatable, blackline master worksheets are included in the teacher’s guide. They are organized to correspond with the student’s workbook. Teaching suggestions are briefly presented, as are notes for each page. An answer key for the student’s workbook is included. Comments on teaching students with special needs are also presented.
