Math Podcast's for 6th Graders?

I have recently created a podcast in a graduate class. It was fun to create and I find that it can be very informative if done correctly.  However, it was very time consuming. So until I build up a collection of my own podcasts, I am wondering if anyone knows of any good podcasts that are already created form implementation? Also, what ways have you found as the best way to implement a podcast effectively?

Flipping the Classroom

I also have been researching flipping my classroom and I'm super excited to dip my foot into it after our PSSA's are complete.  I would like to preview the first math chapter my Pre-Algebra students will see next year in Algebra.  There are going to be tons of questions and lots of adjustments once the flipping begins but I think trying this method out NOW will help me to decide if I want to go all out…

Great Educational Podcasts for 2nd Grade

We Need Solid Mathematical Writers to Promote Math for Our Nation's Future


Everyone in industry, research, and scientific research seems to realize that we have a severe shortage of quality math students coming up through college. And the kids themselves in K-12, specifically in High School tend to realize that math is not their strong suit, but why I ask? It appears to me that the kids are not applying themselves correctly to learn mathematics, and there are not enough solid math teachers teaching math the most efficient way.

Self Contained Middle School Math Standards and Frameworks - GPS


In a lot of ways, Georgia, and Atlanta Public Schools in particular are always early to the party. This school system is always willing to adopt new reforms ahead of many other school systems, particularly those in metro Atlanta. One of the most significant reforms that APS has adopted over recent years is the push for special needs students to be included in the regular education program whenever possible.  SEBD and EBD students in particular have benefit from this push. This is…

A student AFL conversation overheard in the library...

This was originally posted on Assessment FOR Learning.
A few days ago I happened to be walking through the library before school. Two female students were sitting at a table doing homework.

One of the students was working on a Math assignment. I heard her ask the other student, "Did you already do your Math homework?"

The other student replied, "No. I wait until after the 'check-up' and then decide if I…

Thoughts about education

We are well into the new school year by now. In my family, we have settled into a routine of driving to schools and then driving to sports after school. With three kids in three different schools and three different schedules, driving has been really hectic (no school bus system where we live). However, we believe it is important for our kids to have a balanced set of activities, that combines academics with sports and other things.

In my…

New school year for us

A new school year has started. It happened way too soon for me and my family. Nevertheless, the new school year is here, with new schedules, new teachers, and new routines! My daughter, starting 10th grade, is taking calculus in zero period, which means the class starts at 7 am! Personally I think it is way too early to start a class for anyone, not to mention kids who still need more sleep to grow properly. I don’t remember ever having to take a class that early.

Watching my daughter… Continue

ideas for grade 4 math and technology

I'm a grade 4 teacher in BC, Canada, and I'm enrolled in a post-grad. program in integrating technology in teaching. I am looking for ideas to integrate technology into math lessons (starting with whole numbers to 10 000 and addition to 10 000,) in order to better engage students in the lessons and increase their understanding of these concepts. Any ideas for sites, free programs, or lessons themselves will be appreciated. Thank you!

Summer and Math

Happy summer everyone! Public schools are out and the summer has really kicked in. Some of you may be on vacation, and some may be involved with summer camps and summer schools. It never hurts to combine fun and relaxation with creative and productive learning. If you can find just 10 minutes a day for your kids to do some math, it would help them remember the things they have learned, and would make the next school year easier. Also, if your kids are a bit behind on any math…

Aggregated to Death

It seems to me that there has to be an organized way to try to find other people that are teaching similar concepts of math in their respective classes, maybe not at the same time, but without returning 100+ comment returns. I wonder what I am doing wrong, because my google reader has about 100 comments a day.

Also --trying to come up with a good grant proposal to seek funding for Accelerated Math to target our at-risk students (and provide a guaranteed source of resources…

cosecant arguments; not like you think the other argument.

for csc(2n+1) ; the "2n + 1" is considered the argument. The argument I am referring to in the title is the age old battle between what should you know and what should you be able to get, look up, or derive when needed.

The battle rages on. Here is my update to the JS Maths Wiki that was inspired by one such argument (very civil) that I participated in at a holiday party for the staff at our school. Here is… Continue

Wave, wiki and what not?

I have updated the JS Maths Wiki with some student contributions. Inequalities with examples and audio explanations. Listen while you try your homework.

My students and I have had our wave accounts for about a week now. We are, as expected, impressed. We are trying/toying with the idea of building a wave gadget in our Java class, but can not get GWT to work on Ubuntu?…
