“Math teaching could be more about students finding their own problems to solve in rather creative ways.” This can definitely be done through the use of technology to allowing students to explore different math concepts on their own. If teachers challenge students more through the use of multimedia, we are more likely to spark a real interest in math in our students. Technology is at the heart of the 21st Century, so why not direct our instruction and curriculum through the use of these different tools.

John Dalziel's curator insight, October 9, 2013 8:16 AM

The Maths4Us initiative is supported by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, and driven forward by NIACE and a number of key partner organisations across the public and private sector.
Maths is used every day, by everyone. It is crucial in completing daily tasks like shopping and cooking, gaining employment and supporting children with their homework. The list goes on.
Many learners are unaware that they already use maths or mistakenly thinking that learning maths as an adult will be the same as learning it at school. (Sadly with some Learning Providers that will be the case; not you I'm sure!)
The partners have recruited maths champions and created a number of resources to support learners in developing and improving their maths skills.

The Simpsons' secret formula: it's written by maths geeks | The Guardian

The Simpsons' secret formula: it's written by maths geeks | The Guardian | matemàtiques | Scoop.it

Without doubt, the most mathematically sophisticated television show in the history of primetime broadcasting is The Simpsons. This is not a figment of my deranged mind, which admittedly is obsessed with both The Simpsons and mathematics, but rather it is a concrete claim backed up in a series of remarkable episodes.

 

The first proper episode of the series in 1989 contained numerous mathematical references (including a joke about calculus), while the infamous "Treehouse of Horror VI" episode presents the most intense five minutes of mathematics ever broadcast to a mass audience. Moreover, The Simpsons has even offered viewers an obscure joke about Fermat's last theorem, the most notorious equation in the history of mathematics.

 

These examples are just the tip of the iceberg, because the show's writing team includes several mathematical heavyweights. Al Jean, who worked on the first series and is now executive producer, went to Harvard University to study mathematics at the age of just 16. Others have similarly impressive degrees in maths, a few can even boast PhDs, and Jeff Westbrook resigned from a senior research post at Yale University to write scripts for Homer, Marge and the other residents of Springfield.

 

When they moved from academia to Fox Studios, these writers retained their passion for numbers and they have secretly planted mathematical references in dozens of episodes. Until now, only extreme geeks have been aware that the writers have been smuggling mathematics into their scripts while the rest of the planet has been oblivious to the numerous nods to number theory and geometry.
