I struggle with finding ways to make mathematics relevant to my eighth grade students. Students asked today "When will I ever use negative exponents?" I replied that they needed to know this for Algebra next year. I also said that in their everyday life it would probably not be used. I can see using area, volume, probability, percent, etc. in their everyday life as important skills, but some concepts in math are hard to make relevant. I am interested in looking at the videos. I KNOW that making…

Are there any links or resources which addresses the language of word problems? The struggle with the language of a word problem is an ever ending battle for me. They need to be able to link the language to the mathematical process. I can teach them all the algoriths, but if they can't apply them they are useless. I cannot see your links here at school, but plan to access them at home. I'll be interested to see them and maybe have the students in my class do something similar, but on a smaller…

I cannot see your links here at school, but plan to access them at home. I'll be interested to see them and maybe have the students in my class do something similar, but on a smaller scale. I'll be working on this idea with other teachers and let you know how it goes.
