    Common Core Standards

    • 898 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Instead of teachers racing to cover many topics briefly, the standards now request that the teachers deepen their lesson plans and cover fewer topics during the school year (www.corestandards.org). Common Core math standards restructured the elementary standards to include more arithmetic. Elementary teachers spent time, in the classroom, on arithmetic along with other mathematical problems including, shapes, probability, and statistics (Jason Zimba, 2014). While everything that is being taught at the elementary level is relevant, arithmetic has more prevalence for the students because it directly leads to the understanding of algebra in later grades. Jason Zimba, a writer of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, describes the standards for each grade…

    Ideal Educational Experience Cheryl D. Michel Brandman University Educational Experience Teaching Math to Children with Disabilities I chose to write this paper on an actual teaching experience that I was recently afforded the opportunity to be a part of. Over the recent summer vacation in lieu of teaching students at my usual place of employment, I decided to seek an opportunity where I could offer my teaching/tutoring skills as a volunteer. I thought that since I would…

    accounting he was also consulted on the matters of defense and navigation. One of the most important things that Simon Stevin did for mathematics was the elementary standardization of decimal fractions. Decimal fractions are fractions that are turned into decimals. The denominator, or the bottom number of a fraction is placed into the tens place, while the numerator, or the top number is placed to the right of the decimal point. In the year 1585 Simon Stevin released a publication of a…

    In preparation for fractions number talk what I observed was very beneficial for students at the carpet it allowed students to discuss and share with one another. I liked the fact that after a student share students had to give a particular cue saying if they agreed with peer. I thought that was awesome. I also like how she went over what to expect during learning at table and how students will share. So some type of feedback was to be expected even if student did not still quite understand. As…

    Quadratic Functions Essay

    • 1468 Words
    • 6 Pages

    In math, completing the square only works with quadratic functions, otherwise the equation will not be able to solve. An important rule to understand when deriving the quadratic formula by completing the square, is that the leading term must equal to “1”. On the other hand, if the leading term does not equal to “1”, one will have to factor the equation by dividing each term by the leading term. The quadratic equation must start as the following: 〖ax〗^2+bx+c=0. Next, the constant number is to…

    Fractions Fractions are difficult to learn and to teach, however they form an important part of primary education mathematics. Fractions both underpin the development of proportional reasoning, including the understanding of algebra and probability. Much of the confusion of teaching and learning fractions appear to be from the many different coding conventions (6/5, 1 1/4, 1.25, 125%), different representations (models) and interpretations (constructs) (Clarke, Roche & Mitchell, 2008). The…

    Purpose The purpose of this lab is to discover if the theory that the proportions that Vitruvius has set out for us are accurate. This lab will test the theories that Vitruvius has set out. This will also test the measuring skills and mathematical skills of the data taker. Background Information Vitruvius’ idea that a lasting idea of beauty could be learned from the 'truth of nature', that nature's designs were based on universal laws of proportion and symmetry. Vitruvius thought that the…

    The measurements of our world strive to quantify the quality of our lives. The scales we use to measure ourselves and how we feel, fail to understand the concept of life itself. The tears of joy felt by a mother; the symphony of silence held by a survivor; the loudness of a murmur spoken as a prayer. Life is a composition, led by a melody, woven piece by piece, tied by our hopes and colored by our sorrows. Like darkness is the absence of light, pain is measured by the absence of happiness.…

    Math has always been a favorite subject of mine and although I have never been the insightful mathematician, and I still struggle with abstract math problems, I always have a positive attitude toward the subject. Growing up in the elementary grades, I recall always getting good grades in math, but usually, those math problems only require the use of traditional problem solving methodologies. During that time, I loved solving math problems which involved only numbers, finishing a math problem…

    I did my math practicum in a sixth grade classroom over at Emerson Elementary. I had been doing some service learning hours at the beginning of the semester and observed quite a few math lessons. I then worked with a few students but focused specifically on just one for this practicum. He was a student that Mr. Craner said did well in math at times but has a hard time understand why. During my initial interview before I would teach the lessons, I had asked him if he could remember what they…
