October 10 2005 Vol. 10, No. 41 THE MATH FORUM @ DREXEL INTERNET NEWS FunPoW: Free Mentoring Opportunity | Reflections Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) in Spanish FUNPOW: FREE MENTORING OPPORTUNITY http://mathforum.org/funpow/ Mentors from the University of Victoria are offering free mentoring for the next Math Fundamentals Problem of the Week. "Victoria in Bloom" will be active October 10 through 23. Please have your students submit solutions. If your students receive replies from a mentor, encourage them to revise. Not only will your students learn more, but the mentors will learn as well! How to Use Free Mentoring http://mathforum.org/pow/free_mentoring.html -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- REFLECTIONS http://my.nctm.org/eresources/reflections/index.htm The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) offers Web-based professional development for teachers. Start with a lesson plan or reflective question, then explore the mathematics and teaching ideas that emerge from video clips of actual teachers in real classrooms, from samples of their students' work, and from associated activities and resources. Lessons focus on algebra for grades 3-8 and are organized to: Reflect by Lesson - Grade 3: Patterns - Grade 4: Variable - Grade 5: Tiles - Grade 6: Paving - Grade 7: Graphs - Grace 8: Bridges Reflect by Topic - Tasks - Discourse - Student Learning - Teaching Decisions - The Mathematics -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- TECHNOLOGY PROBLEMS OF THE WEEK (tPoWs) IN SPANISH http://mathforum.org/tpow/ We are excited to announce that we are translating all eleven of our current Technology Problems of the Week (tPoWs) into Spanish. This is the first group that we have ready: Cuadros en un Cuadro (Squares in a Square) http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tpow/21015/ El Proyecto de un Millon de Centavos (A Million Penny Project) http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tpow/21017/ Intercambio Galactico II (Galactic Exchange) http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tpow/21060/ Miranda y el Principiante (Miranda and the Rookie) http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tpow/21012/ Monedas Falsas (Counterfeit Coins) http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tpow/21058/ Puesto de Globos (Balloon Booths) http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tpow/21057/ Trafico Apretado (Traffic Jam) http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tpow/20934/ Students are invited to use the link "Submit your answer" to share their solutions, and then "self-mentor" using specially designed hints, checks, and suggestions for extensions. All of our tPoWs are cataloged in Math Tools, a community library of technology tools, lessons, activities, and support materials for teaching and learning mathematics. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- CHECK OUT OUR WEB SITE: The Math Forum @ Drexel http://mathforum.org/ Ask Dr. Math http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Problems of the Week http://mathforum.org/pow/ Mathematics Library http://mathforum.org/library/ Math Tools http://mathforum.org/mathtools/ Teacher2Teacher http://mathforum.org/t2t/ Discussion Groups http://mathforum.org/kb/ Join the Math Forum http://mathforum.org/join.forum.html Send comments to the Math Forum Internet Newsletter editors Donations http://deptapp.drexel.edu/ia/GOL/giftsonline1_MF.asp Ask Dr. Math Books http://mathforum.org/pubs/dr.mathbooks.html _o \o_ __| \ / |__ o _ o/ \o/ __|- __/ \__/o \o | o/ o/__/ /\ /| | \ \ / \ / \ /o\ / \ / \ / | / \ / \ |
