eric.ed.gov har udgivet: Mathematics has become increasingly important in this technological age. That is why it is even more important for children to learn mathematics at home as well as in school. This second edition of Helping Your Children Learn Math is for parents of children in kindergarten through fifth grade. It has been revised to include a variety of activities that will help children learn and apply mathematical concepts such as geometry, algebra, measurement, statistics, and probability in useful and fun ways. All of the 29 activities in this book relate mathematics to everyday life and complement many school mathematics lessons. Additional resources are also listed at the end. (ASK) Link til kilde

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This booklet is one in a series on different education topics intended to help parents make the most of their child’s natural curiosity and become an integral part of reaching the National Education Goals as set forth by the President and governors in 1990. The book suggests ways that parents can generate interest in mathematics in children aged 5-13. Three initial sections discuss ideas parents need to consider when working with their children. Concepts discussed include the importance of mathematics, parents’ and students’ attitudes toward mathematics, the meaning of being a mathematics problem solver, communicating mathematics, and how to use the book. Twenty-six activities are presented that incorporate games, problem solving, and hands-on experiences to teach mathematical concepts. The activities are divided into three categories: (1) Math… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: This book was developed by teachers for parents to work through with their children. Learning activities are provided for each of the mathematics skills on the third-grade Basic Skills Test in Louisiana. Two pages of practice activities and games are provided for each skill, plus a test question similar to that on the Basic Skills Test. The topics covered include: numeration (number words, place value, ordinal numbers); whole-number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication); fractions; relations and functions (greater than, odd and even numbers); measurement and estimation (calendar, money, time, inches and centimeters); geometry (shapes); and word problems (addition, subtraction, multiplication). Answer keys are provided. (MNS) Link til kilde

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT Employing ICT platforms has the potential to improve efforts to assist displaced people, or to liberate them in being more able to help each other, or both. And while platform development has resulted in a patchwork of initiatives – an electronic version of ‘letting a thousand flowers bloom’ – there are patterns emerging as to which flowers grow and have ‘staying power’ as compared to ones that wilt and die. Using a partial application of grounded theory, we analyze 47 platforms, categorizing the services they provide, the functionalities they use, and the extent to which end users are involved in initial design and ongoing modification. We found that 23% offer one-way communication, 72%, provide two-way communication, 74% involve… Continue Reading →

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT Ample research has identified several features of a learning experience likely to enhance student learning, including collaboration, open-ended exploration, and problem-based learning in real-life scenarios. Missing is a model of how instructors might combine these elements into a single project that works flexibly across disciplines and institutions. This article fills this gap by offering such a model and reporting on its effectiveness in fostering student engagement. It describes a project that instructors at four colleges and universities in Flint, Michigan (USA) piloted during the height of the Flint water crisis. The project asked students to apply class content to the real-world problem unfolding around them, and offered students an opportunity to collaborate with peers. We collected qualitative and quantitative… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: The plethora of data that confronts teachers on a daily basis requires that they know more than simply being able to calculate. It demands that they understand the context in which the mathematical ideas are embedded and what those ideas are telling them in relation to that context. Also, it necessitates that they are prepared to question how data, and the associated claims, are presented. For primary teachers, the implication is that they must be prepared to help their students to develop these skills. The “Finding the Maths” strategy described in this article has been shown to be successful in helping students achieve this outcome. The aim of using this strategy is to encourage students to develop the three types of thinking referred to in the numeracy… Continue Reading →

eric.ed.gov har udgivet: Today, being confident and having a sound understanding of mathematics is critical in an age of STEM. Teachers must play in important role in seeing that all students display their confidence in their ability to do mathematics. This paper explains the process of using bibliotherapy when teaching mathematics to address both the math anxious or the math gifted student to build more math confidence in a STEM world. Often gifted students of mathematics can be made to feel bad by their peers just because they know mathematics and things come easy to them. Today there are many students in school that have math anxiety. Children’s and adolescent literature has been recognized now as a means to teaching mathematics to students through the use of stories to make… Continue Reading →
