Making Math Meaningful with Online Games and Videos | 6th Grade Math | Scoop.it

"Math can be made meaningful when connected to students’ experiences. With video clips and interactive games from public media students practice math concepts while exploring real world concepts.

Amy Keathley's insight:

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!

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

Studies Find Payoff in 'Personalizing' Algebra

Studies Find Payoff in 'Personalizing' Algebra | 6th Grade Math | Scoop.it

An ongoing series of studies shows students do better when word problems are tailored to their interests.

The studies, which were discussed at a recent meeting here at Carnegie Mellon University, highlight one way to boost learning in algebraic expression, a concept considered critical in the Common Core State Standards but which educators say is perennially challenging to students. The study found that personalized math problems not only made it easier for students to understand what was being asked, but also helped boost the confidence of students who may have been intimidated by the subject.

Amy Keathley's insight:

Word problems can be so intimidating! I think tailoring them to student interests is definitely a good idea, but we need to be careful - I've heard from some of my classmates that, if done poorly, it's a little offensive.
