"History may be past, but our understanding of it is always on trial" History vs. Andrew Jackson - James Fester | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Andrew Jackson was both beloved and loathed during his presidency. In this imaginary courtroom, you get to be the jury, considering and weighing Jackson’s part in the spoils system, economic depression, and the Indian Removal Act, as well as his patriotism and the pressures of the presidency. James Fester explores how time shapes our relationship to controversial historical figures.

Interactivate: What's New ~ Shodor Foundation | digital divide information | Scoop.it

description by The Scout Project

 

"Designed for educators, the Interactivate website provides numerous high quality resources that assist with the “creation, collection, evaluation, and dissemination of interactive courseware for exploration in science and mathematics.” The What's New area provides interested parties with new and updated activities that are quite compelling. One of the more recent additions is Function Revolution, an activity that allows users to find out about the volume and surface areas of various functions as they are rotated around axes. Moving on, the For Teachers area showcases over a dozen recently updated lessons, including activities on Algorithm Discovery with Venn Diagrams and Conic Flyer Equations."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

The Shodor Foundation has been a great source for mathematics teachers to locate excellent resources to facilitate the teaching of mathematics. This page updates readers on recent additions.
