Mathematics and Puzzles

Mathematics and Puzzles: thoughts of growing up that reflect on math education. As children, we all loved mathematics and working out puzzles. Mathematics was an all-important tool to answer questions, like How many, Who is older, Which is larger.

"I had the pleasure of delivering a staff development workshop to 25 Middle School Mathematics teachers at South San ISD this past weekend. The workshop began with a Google Form Survey to model how teachers could gather data and information from students using Google Forms and the iPad (the form could be accessed from a QR code and a bit.ly address)."

Survey Suggests Hurdles For Math And Science Teaching

Survey Suggests Hurdles For Math And Science Teaching | Middle School Math | Scoop.it

"A rich new set of survey data on math and science teachers highlights some big challenges the nation faces if it hopes to significantly increase student achievement in those disciplines. It also drives home, experts say, the huge need to support teachers as districts begin implementing the common-core math standards, and as an effort to develop common standards for science nears completion. Just one-third of middle school math teachers have a degree in mathematics or math education, for instance, according to the national survey of nearly 7,800 educators, including elementary teachers as well as secondary math and science teachers, issued last month. Fewer than half of elementary teachers feel 'very well prepared' to teach science. And just one in five K-3 educators teaches science every day. Meanwhile, a lot of teachers don't feel well-equipped to plan instruction that meets the needs of students at varying levels of math and science understanding. Also, many don't place a high priority on asking students to explain and justify their method for solving a math problem, or to supply evidence in support of a scientific claim, approaches emphasized in the new math standards and the ones forthcoming in science." | via Education Week

"In an effort to incorporate the iPads into small group intervention stations for middle school math, I spent a few hours collaborating with Cheryl Mutz, an NEISD district Math Instructional Specialist, to create an apptivity to support the study of sequences in 8th Math."

The Talking Cure: Teaching Mathematical Discourse

The Talking Cure: Teaching Mathematical Discourse | Middle School Math | Scoop.it
With the Common Core State Standards hovering, a middle school math teacher discusses her efforts to help her students reason abstractly and approach problems more systematically.

Nicole Cooley's curator insight, January 4, 2013 6:17 AM

This is exactly how we are trying to train teachers to teach with the Mathematical Practices in mind.  Also, look at the Tier 2 Vocab. the teacher is using: "conjecture" and "discourse"
