The presence of contaminants from polluting industries is all too common in low-income areas today, and getting a handle on the situation can be quite challenging. We want to protect the health and welfare of our families, but understanding the complexities of risk, the technical terms and the math involved in environmental data reports is not always easy. Join us as we take a deep dive into the tools, lessons plans, and resources available to empower your adult learners with environmental literacy.

Math Photo of the Day

Hello All! 

I came across this article about a really cool way to engage learners in finding math around them.  It is called the #mathphotoaday challenge.  The instructor creates a calendar with different math prompts and learners photograph and share it.  I think this is a great idea!

Here is a link to the article and to the the twitter feed:

What makes a good math problem?

Hello All!

After last week's challenge problem, I thought I might ask the question.  What makes a good math problem?  Is it one that requires a formula to solve?  Is it it direct or open-ended?  Is it one that pulls from prior knowledge?  

What thoughts do you have about what makes a good math problem?

Using Polar Sciences in Adult Basic Education Programs

Welcome to the discussion, “Using Polar Sciences in Adult Basic Education Programs”. 

Our general level of science literacy is a concern.  What do we know about the physical world we live in?  What do we know about the ways in which scientists do their work?  How can we use the results of scientific research to meet current and future challenges to our societies?  What resources exist to help us educate ourselves about these topics?

A Valuable Resource

Hi to all,

I would like to share a tool that I use often in my work with standards.  It is an app that is available at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/common-core-standards/id439424555?mt=8 by MasteryConnect.  This app allows me to search through the Common Core State Standards with relative ease.  It allows me at a glance to locate the information that I need.  I use the app on both my phone and iPad.  If you are not familiar with it, check it out soon.

Upcoming Webinar on first results from Survey of Adult Skills

After watching this webinar, we could have a follow-up discussion on how this information informs the teaching and learning of science in support of adult skill development!
