Eric.ed.gov – Quincy Market. [A Product of] the Regional Math Network: A Teacher Invigoration and Curriculum Development Project.

In this middle school mathematics unit two imaginary characters, Horatio and Portia, decide to make their fortune in Quincy Market (Boston, Massachusetts) running a Bull Market cart. In order to solve the problems that they encounter, they need to learn ratio and proportion, map reading, estimation, area and perimeter, population sampling, problem solving, and the collecting and processing of data. Teacher notes at the beginning of each section indicate the math objectives, materials, and whether the activity is a reinforcement or an extension of a math skill. The unit is divided into seven modules that can be used either independently or sequentially. These are: (1) an introduction to Quincy Market; (2) the use of the ruler; (3) map exploration; (4) ratio and proportion; (5) scale drawing; (6) perimeter and area; and (7) a simulation (in which the students run their business using the Bull Market Game or a computer simulation). Each module consists of two or three class activities and additional activities which can be used as extensions. The unit contains student worksheets, teacher notes, transparency masters, Bull Market Game cards, and a diskette to be used with the computer portion of the “simulation” module. (TW)

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
