It seems that everyone is talking about math reform these days. But, what does that really mean? What does it or should it look like? The truth is there are many facets of what should make up math reform including things like assessment, understanding how students learn, metacognition, technology and math curriculum. This post will focus on the need to rethink math curriculum and the role of technology in transforming math curriculum.

Kids Teaching Kids with Mathtrain.TV

I've recently discoveredMathtrain.TV. It's a website full of videos that kids have created to teach math skills/concepts to other kids. After reviewing several videos on the site, I've been impressed by the level confidence and understanding that some of the kids demonstrate. I feel very strongly that students need to understand the math they're learning rather than just being able to perform steps that lead to a "correct answer". One of the things I like most about this site is that some of the students really do demonstrate number sense and understanding in their videos. The problems I've viewed have all been rote and skill-based, but the way some of the students explain their thinking makes them worthwhile for helping students learn skills.

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.
