2009 Mathematics Game - The Math Forum (30 December 2008)
Use the digits in the year 2009 and the operations +, -, x, ÷, ^ (raised to a power), sqrt (square root), and ! (factorial), along with grouping symbols, to write expressions for the counting numbers 1 through 100. This year we will also allow the use of decimal points and double-digit numbers. Submissions open January 1 and the first solutions will be posted February 1 2009.
Victoria Miles's Mathematics Lessons (19 December 2008)
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.
NSDL Online Workshops (6 December 2008)
The Math Forum has been hosting a series of online workshops for teachers who work with students in 5th through 9th grade. Teachers will explore the Math Tools digital library and several software tools that contribute in some way to mathematical understanding, problem solving, reflection and discussion. Applications are now open for:
