YouTube is the second web search engine... just after google, and the 3rd social media around the world.

 

YouTube is the 3rd largest social media site on the planet. And its activity makes up about 20% of all social media activity.

YouTube is also the web’s 2nd most popular search engine — behind parent company Google!

Federal Research Suggests New Approach to Teaching Fractions

Federal Research Suggests New Approach to Teaching Fractions | Elementary Math Education | Scoop.it
"Fraction camps" are just one technique researchers are exploring in their efforts to help students get a better grasp of one of the most troublesome topics in basic mathematics.
susanne bowen's insight:

I really dislike how the CCS are being highlighted as a "new approach".  Math is math is math!  With the common core we are simply trying to align the order in which we teach concepts and give those concepts more time to be developed at each level. The CCSS will be a living document, made to be adjusted.  Every teacher may still have their own "approach" hopefully one that involves understanding from the learner.  And yes, sometimes memorization is part of understanding.  If you can retrieve a concept fluently, your brain is free for developing deeper understanding.  If you do not have the basic facts (for whatever level you are on) deeper learning becomes quite difficult.  We should not be memorizing things we do not understand.  I believe that is the critical difference between the goals of CCSS and some other math models.

susanne bowen's insight:

Where is the proof that CC will not work to improve education?  We all see CCSS as change or there would not be so much controversy.  When will people get brave enough to get off the dead horse and and move on?

Density and Emptiness

Density and Emptiness | Elementary Math Education | Scoop.it

"In the end of 2012 I travelled to USA to experience something new. And it was something I didn't expect: emptiness and density.  'Merge' is the last part of a project series 'Empty, Dense, Merge' which explores two opposite feelings through the photos of places located in USA.  In this project two opposite places are merged into one: New York City, where, it seems like everyone wants to live there, and Grand Canyon / Death Valley, which are unlivable."
