Discussion: ICYMI: Discussion on using journals with math


In case you missed it, I want to draw your attention to this discussion the the Teaching and Learning Community of Practice. The topic focuses around the connection between math and reading, with great tips about writing and using journals to help students overcome math difficulties. 

I encourage you to join this discussion - great ideas are being shared.


Discussion: Evaluating Digital Learning for Adult Basic Literacy and Numeracy


I want to call your attention a quasi-experimental design research report released today by SRI Education/SRI Internatiional that was based on a multi year study of five adult basic skills education online or blended learning products for reading or math, and was funded by the Joyce Foundation. Evaluating Digital Learning for Adult Basic Literacy and Numeracy

Discussion: The connection between science and math instruction and science careers

There is a great deal of discussion about how to best prepare students for success in science education which can determine the foundation for success in science related careers. However, even with all the science instruction – it’s the success in mathematics instruction that is a significant predictor of performance in science. For many students, it can be the lack of math skills that deter them from successfully entering a science career.  

Notice: Advancing Mathematics Teaching and Learning in Adult Education

OCTAE is excited to announce the award and commencement of a new project with Luminary Labs: Advancing Mathematics Teaching and Learning in Adult Education. Through this three-year project, ED hopes to accelerate the teaching and learning of advanced mathematics through the use of high-quality OER aligned to College and Career Readiness Standards, innovative teaching models, Teacher User Groups, and next-generation educational technologies.

Discussion: Integer App is "test ready"

I made all the little graphics and filled in all the stuff and paid the $25 so -- I'm an"Android App Developer!"    

I put my app as a "test" one -- though it's so simple that even if it "breaks" it won't do anything bad to anybody's computer (it just won't work).   No infinite loops :-)

Discussion: My lesson is up :)

I'm taking the "Service Learning" MOOC where we're putting together an OER lesson for adult ed... and mine is up! My actual lesson covers just the first section of the chapter, but I put the whole chapter up because it's there (and because it's going up on our college resource site):    https://www.oercommons.org/authoring/13198-integers-introduction-to-the-concept-with-activiti   

Discussion: Upcoming GED Webinar: Making Mathematical Thinking Processes Visible

The Mathematical Reasoning section of the GED® test challenges students to think differently and more deeply about mathematics. We invite you to join the Tuesday for Teachers’ team as they explore visible thinking routines. Experience how to make thinking processes visible in your math classroom as we engage in activities and discuss the impact of integrating thinking routines into mathematical reasoning! You will learn about some specific thinking routines and test-taking tips to assist your students in becoming more confident in their mathematical reasoning skills.
