A few weeks ago a NYTimes published an article titled, Make Your Daughter Practice Math. She’ll Thank You Later, an opinion piece that, basically, asserts that girls would benefit from “extra required practice”
This 4-week curriculum unit we have developed is one that can be used to introduce algebraic concepts at any grade level. It draws upon algebraic research showing that it is more helpful for students to learn algebra through studying pattern growth where a variable represents a case number, and can vary, before learning about “solving for x.” When students start learning algebra by solving for x they come to believe that a variable stands for a single number and does not vary.
Multiply and Divide by Powers of Ten can be a challenging math concept for your students to grasp. Use these tips to instill and conceptual understanding.
Unit Chats are one of the great openers developed in the last few years. The emphasis is on different units within the image. Students can answer “how many” with respect to the different options of units presented by the picture, and also relate the units to each other to build the framework for a deeper understanding of multiplication, division, and fractions.
This "sweet" 3 act math task asks you to first guess how many gummy worms are in a jar Estimation 180-style, then use a part-part-whole model to solve!

My Classroom Economy is a program that enables any educator to teach children financial responsibility through fun, experiential learning. It's a simple classroom economic system based on the idea that students need to earn school "dollars" so that they can rent their own desks. By bringing real-world scenarios into the classroom, students see the impact of their decisions to save, spend, and budget.
Instead of writing a syllabus or creating assessments or working on lessons plans, I have procrastinated and scoured some images from the web to make these. I have uploaded .png's of these into this folder for downloading. The 8 math practices and SBG files were made to blow up to 18x24 (although the 8 math…

Get the Math combines video and web interactivity to help middle and high school students develop algebraic thinking skills for solving real-world problems. Drawing on conventions of popular reality TV shows, video segments begin with profiles of young professionals, who then pose challenges connected to their jobs to two teams of teens. Viewers are encouraged to try the challenges themselves using interactive tools provided on the Get the Math website before returning to the video to see the teams’ solutions. Students can further explore the same, as well as extended, algebraic concepts through additional interactive challenges on the website.
