expii solve

expii solve | Math 8 Specific Supplements | Scoop.it

The purpose of Expii Solve is to get kids—and adults—to approach math as an art. “When people look at art, they say, ‘neat!’ It makes you feel some kind of emotion,” says Loh. “But if you try to teach art by telling exactly how to hold the brush, measure the hues of each color and mix in exact proportions, and then assess students not by painting a picture but how well they can do these steps, everyone will say, ‘I hate art.’”
 “If you learned math through memorizing and quickly plugging into a formula, that’s not the point,” says Loh. “The real point of math is thinking through which formula to invent, how to twist it and use it in a different way.”

Which One Doesn't Belong? | Math 8 Specific Supplements | Scoop.it
Roberta MacDonald's insight:
One of the new curricular goals in Math is to "Communicate in a variety of ways to explain, clarify, and justify mathematical ideas." The best part of this site is that each problem has multiple correct responses that can be justified. Students have to think through the differences that they see and then make logical decisions and be able to explain it to others. These are the topics: Shapes, Numbers, Graphs and Equations.
