What is Mathematics? is a very helpful article for understanding that mathematics is about process not numbers. Dr. Lewis takes his readers through the thought process of providing insight into what math is by comparing it to early reading instruction, sports analogies, and more. His explanations give readers an understanding of the true meaning of mathematics - "true mathematical understanding, the true ability to think, perceive, and analyze mathematically."

tag(s): logic (235), problem solving (272), professional development (123)

In the Classroom

Have your students ever said, "I'll never use this in real life"? If so, that is the time to pull out this article for classroom discussions. Provide different sections of the article to groups of students to present to classmates as a way to understand the importance of developing mathematical understanding, not just a way to put numbers together. Share this article with parents to help them understand the importance of developing mathematical understanding. Share this article with other math teachers in your building.

Do you want to use STEM with better learning through design? Bring project based learning through design along with science, technology, engineering, math, AND art with this tool. The Digital STEAM Workshop is a curriculum using Autodesk products, such as AutoCAD and Inventor. Worried you do not know how to use the software? Don't fear! The student materials include extensive information about completing the projects. These projects are real world, engaging challenges for students. Teacher resources are extensive and include project briefs, lesson plans, pre/post tests, and extensive materials for students. Be sure to note the available materials includes prerequisites, ideas for differentiation, extension ideas, and STEAM connections. Be sure to check the For Educators section, as well as the How-To videos. Teacher materials are available as a download. Be sure to look over all the information on the site including the free download link for the software found in the upper right corner. Discuss the installation and use of the software with your Administration or Technology departments to see if it will work on school computers. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): animation (63), architecture (83), engineering (125), STEM (134), sustainability (19)

In the Classroom

View the basic information. "Start Here" is a good place to start! Choose from the three different levels of information and projects. Be sure to view the lessons and materials under the Teacher Resources section. Select from projects labeled Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced as appropriate. Use a project from the curriculum in place of one activity normally planned through the year. As you become comfortable with using authentic project-based curriculum, consider adding more. Choose from subjects: Architecture, Animation, Engineering, Manufacturing, Maker, STEAM, or Sustainability. These activities would be wonderful challenges for gifted students. Consider looking at student curriculum and creating a class that fits a STEAM model. Incorporate many of these activities into the curriculum. Use projects such as Urban Planning in a variety of different courses in school.

This fabulous UK site offers many resources for math practice and instruction. Choose the Videos and Worksheets section to find a large list of topics sorted alphabetically including instructional videos and practice questions. Many also include corresponding textbook exercises. Choose 5-a-day to find another large selection of printables for daily review, choose from three different levels for each date. (U.S. users will need to "translate" the 5-a-day letter equivalents to find approximate grade levels; count backwards from grade 12 being "A.") Conundrums for each day of the year provide short, daily brainteasers ready to print and use. Don't miss the Great Maths Bakeoff, a terrific idea for Pi Day! This site was created in the UK. American English speakers will notice slight spelling differences and use of English currency. There is also mention of Key Stages 3, 4, and 5. In America, these stages equate to Ages 11-14 (Stage 3), Ages 14-16 (Stage 4), and Ages 16-18 (Stage 5). Some of the videos are hosted on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

Maths Is Good For You offers a history of mathematics and loads of math activities for young mathematicians. Although the site isn't very visually pleasing, it contains quite a bit of mathematics background and information. Learn about famous mathematicians, famous places in math, and the background on some of the origins of mathematics. Be sure to check out the worksheets section for some interesting and quirky activities. This site was created in the UK. American English speakers may notice slight spelling differences. There is also mention of Key Stage 3, 4, and 5. In America, these stages equate to Ages 11-14 (Stage 3), Ages 14-16 (Stage 4), and Ages 16-18 (Stage 5).

tag(s): egypt (67), numbers (204), pythagorean theorem (35), roman numerals (9), worksheets (59)

In the Classroom

Use Maths Is Good For You as a starting point for information on famous mathematicians and theories. Have students upload a photo they have taken and add voice bubbles to explain what they learned using a tool such as Superlame, reviewed here. Have students use Fakebook (reviewed here) to create a "fake" page similar in style to Facebook about a famous mathematician. Print and use worksheets for homework, math centers, or to differentiate instruction. Have students create timelines (with music, photos, videos, and more) using Capzles (reviewed here) using timeline information found on this site.

World Science U offers high-quality science courses from the world's best educators. There is also some math content. Videos and graphics help you to understand rigorous content in meaningful ways. Find quizzes along with a visual archive of quick answers to common science and math questions. Begin your exploration of World Science U by choosing from three areas: Science Unplugged, Short Courses, or University Courses. All courses include a general description along with information on the workload required and background math and science levels needed. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): forces (44), gifted (96), light (46), mass (23), space (205), video (253)

In the Classroom

Use the Science Unplugged section to find and explore videos with your more advanced students. Display the videos on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Share the Short and University Courses with gifted students as advancement opportunities. Complete courses on your own for professional development and to gather ideas for classroom lessons.
