  1. Alternative Instruction and Alternative, Performance-Based Assessment - Jane Ehrenfeld; Math Forum
    Two annotated bibliographies designed to present ways in which assessment can be altered without drastic restructuring of class and curriculum. Some of the articles and books referenced have links to portfolio-based instruction and assessment, and can therefore provide resources for teachers interested in pursuing portfolio systems in their classrooms. All of the articles are math-related, and many give concrete lesson plans and suggestions for practice. more>>

  2. Learning & Mathematics Discussion Sessions - Math Forum
    Newsgroup discussions inspired by recent work on how students learn mathematics among mathematicians, teachers of mathematics, and students of educational psychology that occurred on the Math Forum's newsgroup geometry.pre-college. Much of the work around ideas that form the basis of the NCTM Standards indicates that the traditional classroom needs to be changed if more effective learning (learning that is more conceptual and less formulaic) is to take place. Summaries of articles posted to the group include implications for classroom practice. Annotated bibliographies include: Alternative Instruction and Alternative, Performance-Based Assessment; Cross-Age Tutoring; Girls' Attitudes, Self-Expectations, and Performance in Math; Limited English Proficiency Students and Mathematics; Mathematics and Motivation. more>>

  3. Math Learning Center (MLC) - Gene Maier
    A non-profit Oregon-based educational organization that develops and publishes curriculum materials, provides continuing education for teachers, consults with educational agencies, and provides opportunities for parents and others to become knowledgeable about alternatives in mathematics education. Products and services include publications and teaching supplies (books, manipulatives). Materials are typically teaching guides designed for sensory-rich, highly interactive, textbook-free classroom settings, stressing visual thinking entailing the use of models, sketches and other graphic representations. Curricula include Bridges in Mathematics; Algebra Through Visual Patterns; Opening Eyes to Mathematics; Visual Math and Math Alive!; Number Corner; Box It or Bag It Mathematics; and Story Boxes. Conferences, seminars, and workshops are listed, and a searchable catalog is provided. more>>
