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.

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 :-)   

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   

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.
