Differentiation for the math classroom requiring low and high levels of preparation
The Mathematics Assessment Program (MAP) aims to bring to life the Common Core State Standards (CCSSM) in a way that will help teachers and their students turn their aspirations for achieving them into classroom realities. MAP is a collaboration between the University of California, Berkeley and the Shell Center team at the University of Nottingham, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
"I recently stumbled across a great group of math apps for the iPad and iPhone from Motion Math. Many of their apps feature free versions with the option to pay for additional levels. The app that got me hooked was Hungry Fish. It's incredibly engaging addictive practice for composing and decomposing numbers. The fish wants to eat a target number. The player feeds the fish by combining bubbles containing numbers that make that sum."
The quest by a group of math geeks to create a three-dimensional analogue for the mesmerizing Mandelbrot fractal has ended in success.
They call it the Mandelbulb. The 3-D renderings were generated by applying an iterative algorithm to a sphere. The same calculation is applied over and over to the sphere’s points in three dimensions. In spirit, that’s similar to how the original 2-D Mandelbrot set generates its infinite and self-repeating complexity.
The following images are worth a look. Each photo is a zoom on one of these Mandelbulbs. Daniel White, the amateur fractal image maker who coordinated the Mandelbulb effort, admits this creation isn’t exactly the Mandelbrot in 3-D. It’s mesmerizing and beautiful, but as he notes, only some versions of their original formula generate the kind of detail and complexity they are looking for. Their original equation doesn’t work very well unless you take it beyond the 2nd power. The picture above, White says, doesn’t have the level of detail that should be there.
“That means the biggest secret is still under wraps, open to anyone who has the inclination, and appreciation for how cool this thing would look,” White wrote on his website.
The vast majority of us have, often begrudgingly, learned to deal with the touch-based keyboard, but with commodities such as the stylus very much alive and kicking thanks to the S Pen and others, there's still plenty of hope left yet for those of...
