Transcript

  • Betsy Peisach and Gail Vesely

  • Free!Funded through the National Science FoundationPart of the National Service for Distributed LearningElementary math focus with emphasis on supporting K-5 math specialists

  • The Math Forum at Drexel University International Society for Technology in Education

    ICF Macro International

  • To support elementary educators with the knowledge and instructional resources they need to teach math effectively and build a strong foundation of mathematical knowledge in students.

  • Illuminations and NCTM lessons, appletsAnnenberg Learner courses, videos, Teaching Channel videosInside Mathematics PD videos and moreDoing What Works PD videos and moreMillenium Mathematics Project (NRICH) articles, problems, suggestions, and more

  • Shodor Java appletsThe Math Forum @ Drexel Teacher2TeacherNational Library of Virtual ManipulativesThinking Blocks (Math Playground)Edutopia videos, articles, etc.GeoGebra Java-based software with appletsPBS Learning Media interactive media, etc.

  • Thinking Blocks http://mathplayground.com/ThinkingBlocks/thinking_blocks_modeling%20_tool.html Interactive flash tool; for grades 1-6+; includes video demonstrations

    Third Grade Math Routines http://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/third-grade-math-routines?fd=0 Introductory video in set of five; shows the routines used by Jennifer Saul; for grades K-5

    Wooden Legs Videoshttp://mathforum.org/blogs/suzanne/2011/12/01/wooden-legs-videos/ Problem of the Week from the Math Forum

    Kids and Cookieshttp://www.teacherlink.org/content/math/interactive/flash/kidsandcookies/kidcookie.phpTool that allows user to choose number of children and number of cookies to share

  • Keep It Simple http://nrich.maths.org/6540 An interesting problem using addition of fractions; for grades 5-6+Triplets: A Game of Equivalent Fractions http://www.mathplayground.com/Triplets/Triplets.html Students group equivalent fractions and visual representations; for grades 3-6+Melvins Make a Match http://pbskids.org/cyberchase/games/equivalentfractions/ Interactive game from Cyberchase; students match equivalent fractions; for grades 3-5

    Thinking Blocks: Fractionshttp://www.thinkingblocks.com/tb_fractions/fractions.htmlSimilar to Thinking Blocks, with tool and problem sets for teacher use.

  • Locate resources aligned to specific CCSS and NCTM standards.

  • Limit your search criteria and find resources aligned to the Mathematical Practice Standards.

    **Mathlanding Presentation Slides**Mathlanding Presentation Slides**Mathlanding Presentation Slides**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesHomepage includes the general search as well as links to Advanced Search and Browse by Standards, more about those later. You may decide to register/sign in click on the register link to show the advantages, then sign in. Advantages include saving and uploading resources, creating and sharing with groups, participating in discussions and rating/commenting on resources.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesGeneral search you may choose to search for a keyword or phrase and/or select a math topic and/or grade levelIf possible Algebraic Thinking, Grade 4Then add keyword - factor**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesWhen you use your advanced search, you get the typical search results page, with a button to Refine your search.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesWhen mentioning Annenberg learner, say these are classic resources many demonstrate best practices for addressing the NCTM process standardsTeaching Channel we look for the really good ones that address the mathematical practice standards as well as the NCTM processes.**Mathlanding Presentation Slides**Mathlanding Presentation Slides**Mathlanding Presentation Slides**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesRight under the general search that follows you around, youll see Advanced Search and Browse by Standards.Begin with the Standards.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesDefault is CCSS, also NCTM available.Walk through features---choose Algebraic ThinkingChoose: Operations and Algebraic Thinking

    **Mathlanding Presentation SlidesWhen you click on the number, you see the standard displayed at top, followed by the search results.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesNCTM Standards work the same way.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesUsing the filter on this page, searches the words in the standards (not the resources)e.g. search for standards in grades 3 to 5 that contain the word variable.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesThe other possibility is the Advanced Search.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesNote that your selections are shown in the section on the right.You can save your search criteria. When you come back, if new resources have been added to the catalog, they will come up too.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesNote that your selections are shown in the section on the right.You can save your search criteria. When you come back, if new resources have been added to the catalog, they will come up too.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesCollections are a way weve tried to help our the math specialists, coaches, leaders, and resource teachers.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesExample of a PD Collection**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesMy toolset this is where specialists can save resources and share them.Note there are personal folders and shared folders. Note also that your folder has sections for ML content and for content that you add yourself.Buttons allow you to create new folders and to share folders (with a group you have to set it up).**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesExample of a shared folder.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesMy Groups private and public groups. This shows a private group, owner, members.Tabs to show the shared folders and discussions you can have your own discussion within your group.You can delete a group and create a group.You must know usernames or emails in order to create a group.

    **Mathlanding Presentation SlidesMF community is devoted to the practice standards.**Mathlanding Presentation SlidesDiscuss tab gives direct access to the public discussions**Mathlanding Presentation Slides**Mathlanding Presentation Slides
