America's Math Problem - Online Colleges

America's Math Problem - Online Colleges | math | Scoop.it

"Whether you love it or hate it, if you’ve partaken in the American school system, there’s no doubt that you’ve studied math in a wide range of forms and subjects. From algebra to geometry to the rigor of calculus, math is something that is a part of the average student’s life from kindergarten to college."

This infographic explores math in America. Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans is "functionally innumerate"? What does this mean? Sixty-two million Americans cannot do basic math such as adding fractions, working with measurement or doing whole number problems. 

Learn about how other countries compare to the U.S., how the U.S. compares to Singapore and South Korea in terms of "high achiever", what happens when we "hate" math, and what could be done to help the next generation succeed in math.

I use this often in my math classroom now.  The most difficult task is to make sure that students understand the meaning behind it!

Amy Keathley's curator insight, February 16, 2014 9:41 PM

This is definitely the direction we need to go - many students have such a hard time connect the math they learn in class to the real world and this is a step in the right direction!

Designed with the UDL Curriculum Tool Kit from CAST.

Amy Archambault's curator insight, March 4, 4:14 PM

Introducing two new math apps that are designed based on the principles of UDL: MarhScaled and MathSquared.

 

Why Puzzles?  They note that:

"Puzzles provide a natural format for developing reasoning skills. By teaching algebraic reasoning skills in a context that does not appear to be math-specific, puzzles address affective barriers to learning (e.g., math anxiety). Providing different types of puzzles offers practice across multiple representations, which is critical for developing the ability to generalize."

Accessible Pages with MathJax

MathJax was designed with accessibility in mind and has several powerful features to make math easier to see and read, both for ordinary users as well as those with print and learning disabilities.  Two accessibility features, the ability to scale all math in a page or zoom in on a particular equation, are built in to MathJax.  In addition, MathJax works with MathPlayer to make math accessible to screen readers, to screen magnifiers, and to learning disability software.
