“Difficulty with fractions (including decimals and percents) is pervasive and is a major obstacle to further progress in mathematics, including algebra.” (National Math Advisory Panel, 2008.) Fractions are the earliest topic in school mathematics where educators agree that students fail and teachers struggle to instruct. This activity packet is good for students with dyslexia and language-based learning deficiencies.

Fermi Problems and Questioning

Fermi Problems and Questioning

(1)
Today’s teachers are pushed for time to develop the level of understanding with content as well as the levels of expertise with the Standards for Mathematical Practice in the typical mathematics classroom. Fermi problems provide an engaging platform for fostering students’ critical thinking, problem-solving, estimating, modelling, and questioning skills. And they can be implemented in such a way as not to detract from the limited class time teachers have available. Fermi problems can be embedded in daily instruction to help students develop these important skills. This model of implementation does not require a large amount of additional time to be spent but fits seamlessly into daily instruction. A power point for classroom use is provided as well as facilitation notes supporting the initial process for implementing a Fermi problem in your daily instruction. From the first journaling assignment to the final check phase students will engage in writing, posing questions that need to be answered in order to “solve” the Fermi problem, developing a model to be used in determining an answer, applying the model, and reflecting on the outcomes. Activity, PowerPoint Presentation This resource is good for students with dyslexia and language-based learning deficiencies.

Vocabulary is one of the foundations for developing understanding for any subject area and mathematics is no exception. For many students, words used in mathematics may not be familiar in context. Students need many opportunities to use vocabulary in their daily work. Providing additional opportunities to review vocabulary in a learning station, center, or small group will help support students who are challenged by the language of mathematics.

Writing Prompts for High School Mathematicians

(0)
This packet offers 11 diverse opportunities for writing in mathematics with over 40 individual prompts for primary students. Writing in mathematics involves more than just putting word to paper. Words need to be carefully chosen to communicate ideas and concepts clearly. Writing involves all of the language of mathematics. Reading, vocabulary, notations and symbols, diagrams, charts, graphs, and metacognition all serve a role as students are engaged in writing in mathematics. Many and varied opportunities need to be provided for students to engage in original thought writing. And remember, just because a students can say something in words, it in no way shows that they can write those same thoughts. Those are two different skill sets. Writing also provides opportunities for the verbal learner to excel as well as the creative learner. This beginning assortment of writing prompts can be adapted as needed for the course, topic, and level of the students. The important thing is to write! Just asking, “Why?”, “How did you think about that?”, “What could be another strategy used here?”, and “Is your conclusion reasonable?” requires students to engage in more than just procedural mathematics. On the back page is a sample of how journal prompt cards can be made for learning station facilitation or to print on labels for ELL/ESL and struggling learners and beginning writers.

Multiple Representation Match Activity Primary Numbers-5

Multiple Representation Match Activity Primary Numbers-5

(0)
NCTM describes “representation” as referring to both a process and a product. So mathematical representations include all the different ways that students depict their thinking as well as the processes they use to put their thinking into those forms. Representations have often been taught as an end in and of themselves, most as essential elements in supporting students’ understanding. When students gain access to mathematical representations and the ideas they express they acquire a set of tools that significantly expand their capacity to model and interpret physical, social, and mathematical phenomena. This activity takes the number 5 and represents it through a concrete manipulative, the written symbol, a verbal symbol, a diagram, picture, graph, drawing, or table, and an algebraic representation with a mathematical sentence. There is also a contextual problem for the students to work through. There are 5 sets of cards, each with 6 representations with facilitation notes.
