Math Podcast's for 6th Graders?

I have recently created a podcast in a graduate class. It was fun to create and I find that it can be very informative if done correctly.  However, it was very time consuming. So until I build up a collection of my own podcasts, I am wondering if anyone knows of any good podcasts that are already created form implementation? Also, what ways have you found as the best way to implement a podcast effectively?

Mathematics education - dire or inspire?

Maths education – dire or inspire?



You could see the panic in their faces - and then the relief.



They were students in their final year of high school on a visit to campus to explore the possibility of “going to uni” after they finished their compulsory schooling. I had, perhaps perversely, set up an experiment. I had told them that two of them would find a red dot under their seat - and if they were one of these people they would come forward and participate in a simple… Continue

Improving numeracy with the 7 C's

There have been many reformers offering ideas for improving numeracy in our schools.  Many of them advocate the use of specific commercial resources or explicit lesson plans – in short they offer recipes for teachers and schools to follow.    The quietly spoken Alistair McIntosh (formerly Associate Professor at the University of Tasmania, Australia)…

Mathematical Maverick – Dan Meyer – “Be less helpful”

If mathematics has a poster boy it is – or at least should be – Dan Meyer.  Meyer is something of a rarity in the field of public discussion of mathematics; he is not an academic, he is not an  educational administrator,  he is a teacher -  someone who works in real classrooms with real students with real mathematics.    It is this “real world” context that makes him worth listening to – and which provides the grounding for his instruction.

Meyer is an advocate of authentic…

Mathematicians' Lament - Paul Lockhart

Following on consistently in my habit of being the last kid on the block to discover something I recently fell upon “Mathematician’s Lament” by Paul Lockhart.  



The history of the book is interesting in itself – it actually started life as a 25 page type written document that was presented to math guru Keith Devlin at a conference.  Devlin was intrigued and impressed by… Continue

cosecant arguments; not like you think the other argument.

for csc(2n+1) ; the "2n + 1" is considered the argument. The argument I am referring to in the title is the age old battle between what should you know and what should you be able to get, look up, or derive when needed.



The battle rages on. Here is my update to the JS Maths Wiki that was inspired by one such argument (very civil) that I participated in at a holiday party for the staff at our school. Here is… Continue

Wave, wiki and what not?

I have updated the JS Maths Wiki with some student contributions. Inequalities with examples and audio explanations. Listen while you try your homework.











My students and I have had our wave accounts for about a week now. We are, as expected, impressed. We are trying/toying with the idea of building a wave gadget in our Java class, but can not get GWT to work on Ubuntu?…

Editing Equations on Web 2.0 Sites

What are your needs for editing and rendering equations or formulae on Web 2.0 sites? Social networks and Web 2.0 sites are the ideal forum for sharing, but they are not geared for academic use. Academic discussions would be considerably improved if Web 2.0 sites would add just three buttons: Superscript, Subscript and Greek letters to the HTML editing toolbar. Perhaps we should ask Ning and other social network providers for better support for this… Continue

MediaWiki, LaTeX and teTeX

Spent the greater part of the day getting matrices and \mathbb to work on my FreeBSD/MediaWiki install.



The issue is with amsfonts. I installed the latex port, but this does not include amsfonts. Deinstalled and installed teTeX, restarted apache and voila I now have vectors, matrices, and more.





Visit: Maths to see some matrices and \mathbb's



I posted what I did in some detail to:…
