Web 2.0 Tools for Math Educators

This is a continuing series on Web 2.0 and other web-based tools for educators. This information is specific to math educators, but there is some crossover into science. Math educators will find a large number of useable interactive companion web sites for the teaching of math concepts and skills.

Blake Mead's curator insight, October 17, 2014 11:49 AM

I really enjoyed reading this article because it really helped explain web 2.0 tools and how to use them in  the classroom.

Da Lei's curator insight, March 9, 2015 12:09 PM

Many teachers have trouble teaching math to their students. This web 2.0 tool will assist teachers in teaching their students on math concepts.

Math Videos on Math Playground - Why UDL?

Math Videos on Math Playground - Why UDL? | Applying tech integration | Scoop.it

Math videos on Math Playground can be used to provide "multiple means of representation and engagement" for students who need another way to understand math concepts and processes.  I know from teacher and student testimonials how effective they have been in improving math understanding. If you have a website or LMS, link to these math videos that support all students in and out of school. Oh yes, this site has math games that kid's love.

Math Methodology: UDL as a Prevention Strategy in Addressing Needs of Students with Math Difficulties

In this essay, UDL is proposed as the first tier in a prevention strategy by Fuchs and Fuchs, well known for their work in intervention strategies.

 

"Universal Design for Learning from the Center for Applied Special Technology calls for students to have multiple means of expression, representation, and engagement in their learning. Instructional media should provide those elements and have scaffolds built in (Deubel, 2003). Within a universal design framework, Fuchs and Fuchs (2001, pp. 86-87) presented four principles of primary prevention that can be used with all students."

“This program reaches out to those students who do not do well with traditional programs. It supports the struggling learners by using fun, kinesthetic response to traditional problems. Through the different speeds, students will increase the rate at which they make calculations, transitioning from calculating to just memorizing what numbers divide into other numbers."

Dan Meyer: Math class needs a makeover

Dan Meyer shows ways that he engages students in math and provides "multiple representations" in solving word problems at the high school level. Overall, this is a great example of how to apply UDL strategies in a subject that so many students do not do well in.  Thank you, Dan!

Thinking Blocks - Model and Solve Math Word Problems

Thinking Blocks - Model and Solve Math Word Problems | Applying tech integration | Scoop.it

Thinking Blocks supports the 1st principle (multiple representation) of UDL in providing blocks to model and solve word problems.  It also supports the research from the IES (Institute of Education Sciences) where there is strong evidence that interventions should include instruction on solving word problems that is based on common underlying structures. Help all students learn how to solve word problems using the Thinking Blocks Model and Solve Tool!
