Culturaly I wonder how diverse maths anxiety is and whether it comes out in different forms depending on the society which the students is in?
This site is very adictive. Lits of short mats ideas in visual form
17 phtographs that display perfect symmetry? Except... they don't! I think the journalist needs to go back to school! Good pics for a symmetry lesson and a discussion why they're not perfect
Amazing video about Prime Number Spirals. Beautiful stuff!

This is a very interesting article. This article talks about how some parents are not happy with the common core and how the math is being presented to the students. I have some mixed feelings about it as well but what I see as the overwhelming value is the fact that it needs to show the students understanding over their knowledge. Many parents are having trouble with the common core because it was not how the information was presented to them so they dont know how to assist the students when they bring the work home. I would agree, the verbage of the math problems in common core are confusing and very open. I think that this will in the long run build more rounded students and students that can think fully to solve a problem instead of taking a one path mind. I feel that this shows that parent need to be educated on the goals and processes of the common core so everyone is on the same page. This can also show the benefits of a flipped classroom because students can do problems like this as school work where teachers can assist them in understanding the way that the problems are stated.
I've been asked to write about how math influences my creative process, so here goes!
Math@Work is a video series from Scholastic. The seven part series shows learners how maths is used in fashion design. |
Kieth Devlin is a mathematician I have a lot of respect for since I took his online course in college mathematics. This is his take on the sometimes sinister roles that mathematics can take on the the moderrn world.

I think that this video would be great in a classroom because there are so many times I know that I struggle to show the connection between the real world and the math that we are working on. This video does this beautifully because it shows the math, diagram, and real life event simultaneously. I think that this could be used on the first day of class or the last day of class to show students that there are truly connections to the real world and that math really does explain a lot of things that happen in out daily lives.

This article helped me think about a new perspecitive. Not just thinking how I can directly help the student but also how they can help themselves. Or get help from other peers. It was good for me to realize that they can get help from many places. And sometimes working with their peers can be effective for them build confidence and learn. I thought the charts were an effective way of also making the students think about themselves. And although exploring my own thoughts have always been difficult for me Ive realized that is can be an effective way to grow and find new understanding. This article gave me some good ideas. And especially allowed me to think of a few of my own. And hopefully when I can become a teacher I will be able to expand my horizons about skills and activities to help my students.

A recent research confirm it's a stereotype. Women feel stereotype threat and perform more poorly in math as they see men in a dominent role in math class |
