Victoria Miles's Mathematics Lessons

Victoria Miles created these lessons to guide students' mathematical discoveries by capturing their attention with interactive programs or applets. The lessons, for grades 6-8, are based on the Massachusetts State math standards, which are based on the national (NCTM) standards.

Victoria shared these lessons with the Math Forum, and developed "Exploring Distance, Rate, and Time" while she was taking one of our NSDL Online Workshops:

Many Eyes - IBM

"Many Eyes is a bet on the power of human visual intelligence to find patterns. Our goal is to 'democratize' visualization and to enable a new social kind of data analysis...."

View and discuss visualizations, view and discuss data sets, and create visualizations from existing data sets. Register for more options, such as uploading your own data and participating in discussions around the patterns that you see from exploring data visually. Requires Java.

From the Visual Communication Lab of IBM's Collaborative User Experience.
