After finding these math hacks, I'm convinced that all those years of being forced to struggle through math class really was just a torture ploy created by evil math teachers everywhere. Check out these amazing math tips and you'll agree! Watch out though, you may just unleash the inner math whiz you never knew was in you...
ne of the most common questions math teachers hear from their students is, “why does this matter?” They are constantly trying to convince students that math is useful and could help them in their everyday lives. But it can be a tough sell. Word problems alone often feel contrived and students see right through them.
Thomas Petra has taught math at every level for more than 20 years and encountered dubious students at every grade level. That’s why he developed Real World Math, a free website with lessons based on Google Earth aimed at grades 5 – 10. “I was trying to show them actual applications of the math ideas that they see in the textbook,” Petra said.
Math needs better PR. When it comes to coolness math really should be up there with the new iPad, the latest X-Factor winner and whichever color is fashionable this season. Often people actually think that it’s cool to not be able to do math! As part of Maths Insider’s mission to make math cool I’ve pulled the best math quotes from the Twitter stream @Math_Quotes, and used my limited artistic skills to add them to some nice backgrounds (Powerpoint templates in fact!). Enjoy and do share them with your friends and family! Math needs all the PR it can get!

“ MathChat is an interesting new iPad app that I discovered recently. As its name indicate, MathChat is an app that allows students to collaborate and work together on math problems. This collaboration takes place in group chats where members get to exchange messages, use pointers to show how to solve a problem, or draw and add arrows to provide illustration and guidance on Math concepts. This collaborative feature of MathChat resembles to a great extent the work Whiteboard apps do.”

Welcome to TurnOnCCMath.net! The GISMO research team at North Carolina State University has developed 18 learning trajectories that unpack the K-8 Common Core State Standards for Mathematics from the standpoint of student learning, and elaborate the underlying scientific research in mathematics education. The hexagon map illustrates these learning trajectories, standard by standard. Clicking on a hexagon or a trajectory takes you to detailed descriptors that articulate students' progression from prior knowledge and naïve conceptions to more sophisticated mathematical concepts and reasoning.
