Math Literacy and the Common Core: Writing Your Way to Understanding Common Core Concepts 3rd and

Math Literacy and the Common Core is intended to help educators understand the link between literacy skills and learning math concepts. It addresses the misconception that math learning process is a journey resting on the shoulders of students and that it is up to students to determine whether or not math will be mastered. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. An abundance of research supports the assertion that teachers should be shouldering most of the math learning responsibility. Thus, we must recognize…it is teachers who are responsible for student learning as well as for student success in mastering the standards. This book is intended to be a roadmap for teachers to that end. It is a starting point for teachers to collaborate within their own geographic areas and determine authentic standards-based, hands-on lessons that will engage each set of students and move them toward math mastery. This collaboration, coupled with in-depth lesson study, is a key component for student learning. Teachers collaborating and disaggregating lessons are keys to unlocking the doors to student mastery. Unfortunately, not enough emphasis is usually put on these keys. If our math programs are ever to be truly world class – this has to change. The bottom line: the majority of students are not going to understand math until we, as teachers, learn to teach math differently. Let Math Literacy and the Common Core be your starting point to those ends. Intended to be a workbook.

Decision 1 - All lessons and resources for all chapters

PowerPoints written so that a teacher can learn from the PowerPoints and teach from them. Students can use the PowerPoints to learn independently too. Many colleagues have used my lessons on Decision 1 without a strong understanding of Decision themselves. Includes all chapters: Algorithms, Networks, Route Inspection, Critical paths, Linear Programming and Matchings Includes all worksheets, answers and assessments

Mathematics Decision 1 Lessons

Mathematics Decision 1 Lessons

This is a set of lessons for Decision Mathematics. The resources include Powerpoints and worksheets. Powerpoint include: Learning objectives Examples animated at each step to support explanations and independent learning Important information written in red boxes to scaffold learning. Worksheets include examples on a word document for students to write on. Topics: Spanning Trees Linear Programming Dijkstra’s Algorithm Chinese Postman Problem Travelling Salesman Problem Matching Sorting Algorithms Graph Theory I hope you enjoy these lessons, where they can be used in the following ways: To deliver a course with reduced planning but not reducing quality of the lesson, as this course can be time consuming writing and preparing examples, where this resource can help. As a basis for an observation lesson to save time preparing resources. To give to students for out of lesson learning. To support teachers who are new to this topic, again to reduce planning time.

A Level EdExcel Decision Mathematics 1 - Notes and Worked Examples

A Level EdExcel Decision Mathematics 1 - Notes and Worked Examples

This is a powerpoint covering all areas of Decision 1 (I realise they are only putting it in further maths from 2017). It contains brief notes by way of an explanation, model answers to questions and a question or two for the students to do; all of the questions come with answers that you can display when ready. The slide show comes with a progress grid (regularly referred to in the presentation) so that students can mark their progress from start to finish and pinpoint any areas that may need extra work with a “red/amber/green” system that they fill in. It’s what I use in my lessons before setting tasks from worksheets or text books to practice.
