THIS IS A REALLY BIG DEAL -- A FREE, POWERFUL ONLINE GRAPHING CALCULATOR -- THAT WORKS ON ANY DEVICE

 

Yes, I'm shouting. Desmos is a browser-based graphing calculator that works terrifically on any device. It's built in HTML5, so it even works on iOS.

 

To start off 2013, Desmos has added to its repertoire of functionality by launching Tables of Data. As the Desmos team says on its blog, "Tables are a student’s first way of organizing the logic of a function — number goes in, number comes out. They are the heart of statistics. They are one of the three legs of the representation tripod mandated by Common Core, along with symbolic (equations) and graphical (um… graphs).

 

If you teach mathematics, or use mathematics in what you teach, this is sure to mean a lot. Please check Desmos out and add comments below.

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 27, 2013 3:09 AM

This scoop it profile by @Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)  includes many useful blogs and articles that aim to teach in the 21st century. This includes learning with the use of technology. What he refers to as the 'iGeneration' includes many useful updates that can be used for both the students and teachers in the classroom. A few i came across that sparked my interest were a description on how to set up a blog with wordpress for teachers, this can be very useful to me as a student now and also in the future. I enjoy D'Amico's profile as he scoops quite interesting topics.

When curriculum resources are limitless due to the access we have to on-line materials, then the question we ask about those materials become more important. Values Education helps us all to ask the right questions! See some innovative whole school projects at:

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 9:02 AM

I worked in a small school where parents played an integral role in their children's learning. They helped through their sharing their pedagogic experiences with me and this enabled me to help their children. When we discourage working parent-teacher partnerships, and my School managers did, teaching and learning are negatively impacted. The last 7 School managers set up roadblocks to those relationships and that little school no longer exists beyond its name.
