Infographics can be very powerful multimodal texts (symbols, shapes, and images) and relevant character-based data (numbers, words, and brief sentences).

Interactive formats for the practice of a calculation designed, flexible and based on numbers. | Maths | Scoop.it

 

While we clearly still a minority, we are increasingly the / as teachers / as we want which the contents of school arithmetic is not addressed in a mechanical and routine but are supported for real mathematics, we are increasingly those who prioritize meanings and strategies, based on the properties of operations on the pure mechanics devoid of significance, those who work with numbers and figures, those who argue that the calculations can be done flexibly, we are convinced that mental calculation methods should not be essentially different from the written calculation methods.

"Basic Laboratory Gaming, Probability and Combinatorics"

"Basic Laboratory Gaming, Probability and Combinatorics" | Maths | Scoop.it

In the last decade of the twentieth century we are witnessing a proposed curriculum change in the teaching of probability at all educational levels. In curriculum design, not only in Spain but in other countries, it is suggested to start this education at a younger age and introduce the probability in its meaning frequency. The recommended methodology is based on experimentation and simulation of random experiments. For example, the NCTM standards indicate that students should explore through situations and actively probability models.

 

"Basic Laboratory Gaming, Probability and Combinatorics" (First Prize for Educational Materials _ITE_2010. Spain) enables this methodology.

This is a great framework of instructional strategy ideas. Whilst the poster is handy the extra detail on the website shows the depth of thinking behind it. As they say you can never have enough strategy ideas in your teaching toolbox!
