A Different Way of Measuring
Conditions of Use:

Rating

In this experiment, students measure the area of a dime using methods similar to those used by scientists to measure the size of atoms. When working with atoms, scientists sometimes have to invent new ways of doing simple things. For instance, scientists can't use a ruler to measure the size of an atom's nucleus. This activity shows how ratios can be used to calculate the area covered by an object.

Does your sleep deficit impact your life?
Conditions of Use:

Rating

In this problem-based learning module, students will explore the importance of sleep and the impact sleep has on their lives.  During the launch phase students can choose to record sleep data via downloaded apps or in a sleep diary.  Days 2 through 4 have students explore the concept and necessity of living organisms need to sleep. On day 2 the participants will take a series of cognitive test for baseline data.  Through station rotation and a jigsaw activity learners will become familiar with circadian rhythm and sleeping disorders. Finally, days 5-7 have the students produce a video or infographic to communicate the importance of sleep and its relationship to performance both physically and academically.

Exploring Place Value -- Race the Clock!
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Students will explore the concepts of place value using their bodies as tools. They will time themselves performing various kinesthetic tasks like jumping jacks and sit ups and use the numbers that they record from these activities in their exploration. Working in groups, they will practice adding and subtracting and comparing numbers. They will also come up with creative ways to represent numbers using the properties of operation and the rules of place value.

The Flaws of Averages
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This learning video presents an introduction to the Flaws of Averages using three exciting examples: the ''crossing of the river'' example, the ''cookie'' example, and the ''dance class'' example. Averages are often worthwhile representations of a set of data by a single descriptive number. The objective of this module, however, is to simply point out a few pitfalls that could arise if one is not attentive to details when calculating and interpreting averages. The essential prerequisite knowledge for this video lesson is the ability to calculate an average from a set of numbers. During this video lesson, students will learn about three flaws of averages: (1) The average is not always a good description of the actual situation, (2) The function of the average is not always the same as the average of the function, and (3) The average depends on your perspective. To convey these concepts, the students are presented with the three real world examples mentioned above.

Integrating Mathematics, Science and Language
Conditions of Use:

This bilingual curriculum and resources guide and is designed to help elementary school teachers organize instruction to increase achievement of Hispanic primary-grade children whose first language is not English. The guide offers a curriculum plan, instructional strategies and activities, suggested teacher and student materials, and assessment procedures. Because language development is a fundamental co-requisite for learning mathematics and science concepts, processes and skills, the lessons in many instances begin with literature (e.g., stories, books) and discussion activities that set the stage for posing questions and presenting conflicting situations related to the Big Ideas in mathematics and science that are the focus of the lesson.

Math Routines
Conditions of Use:

Students enter our math classrooms with anxiety about performance, misconceptions about what math is, and a lack of confidence that can limit their ability to have meaningful learning experiences. In response to this challenge, Stanford researcher Jo Boaler has focused on some key tenants to help students transform their mindset to find more success with math teaching and learning. Some of these mindset shifts include recognizing that: (1) anyone can learn math, (2) making mistakes is essential to learning, (3) math is about fluency and not speed, (4) math is visual, (5) being successful in math requires creativity, flexibility, problem solving, and number sense.

In order to start building these mindsets, Boaler advocates, among other strategies, that students build a habit of being mathematical through common routines, tasks, and puzzles.

This guide will introduce 3 of those routines/puzzles including tips on how to successfully implement these tasks in a face to face, blended, or distance learning setting.

The Need
Many adult education students had difficult (and often negative) experiences with math teaching and learning during their time in the K-12 system. Without addressing their math trauma and helping them to build a mathematical mindset, our students may continue to struggle and be limited in their ability to succeed in math class, on the equivalency exam, and in college and career settings. So our program views math mindsets as the greatest challenge and largest opportunity for transforming the experience our students have when returning to school. Without this shift, we could share the best lesson plans, the most engaging OERs, and the most transformative teachers, and students will continue to be held back by self-limiting perceptions about math and about their ability to succeed.
