History of Mathematics

(0)
The study of the history of mathematics allows students to understand where and how some of the mathematics with which they work came from or was derived. There are resources for teachers and students as well as some activities and topics and projects for students to investigate. Writing and presentation opportunities are included. A writing project, trade card project and a scavenger hunt are included. This resource is good for students with dyslexia and language-based learning deficiencies.

Place Value Mat to thousands

Place value is the corner stone for building numeracy. Having a base ten mat that shows the verbal – both the place value and the name for the manipulative, the numerical, as well as the pictorial helps students build stronger connections and deepen their understanding as they work with place value. This is a mat for units, rods, flats, and cubes. There is a version also for legal paper.

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.

The number 1 plays an integral role in mathematics. Students should be able to discuss 1 as an exponent, 1 as a coefficient, 1 in terms of rational expressions, one as the identity element for multiplication, and various other aspects of one as their mathematical background allows. Students with more advanced mathematical backs=grounds can even discuss the Pythagoreans identity. Check back every day to download all twelve days of Christmas Mathematics activities. This resource is also good for children with dyslexia and language-based learning deficiencies.

Writing Prompts for High School Mathematicians

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.
