<p>I myself favor reading and writing as keys to life. However, there is no denying that math is the king of reasoning ability. If you can solve a math problem, you should be able to solve any reasoning problem that life will throw at you. <a href="http://www.dzmix.com" id="clean-url" class="install" rel="nofollow">casino en ligne</a></p>

<p>As a high school math teacher, this is interesting. As I read this, I often found myself thinking about how my classroom would be different if my students had a program like this in elementary and/or middle school. This approach may not work for all kids, but it definitely has to be better than the drill and kill approach still found in math classrooms around the country.</p>

<p>You should consider incorporating high school math concepts through project-based learning. Here are some articles and videos from Edutopia.org that may provide some ideas:</p>

<p>Like the teachers at Fullerton IV Elementary School I too teach from the belief that all students can do math. As a high school math teacher the question that I get most often is " Where am I going to need this?". Do you know of any good resources that I can use in order to create investigational projects relating to high school math?</p>

<p>I loved the video and particularly enjoyed the piece about Steph Neyhart measuring the actual length of the Titanic on the sidewalk in front of school. Both students and teacher experienced a concrete understanding of that distance.</p>
<p>I did something similar with a primary class. While studying the solar system, we created foam board representations of the 9 planets (Pluto was still in the fold at that time), stapled a huge paper sun to the back wall of our school, and then located our planets (mounted on wooden stakes) in proportional distances out across our large back field. We used a scale of 1 ft. = 10,000,000 miles. Mercury was 3.6 feet from the school and Pluto 367 feet back. Then someone asked where the closest star would be. We discovered that Proxima Centauri, on our scale, would be about 471 miles away: the distance from our town, 60 miles from the Canadian boarder in Washington State, to northern California! As well as giving the students a concrete understanding of the location planets in our solar system, the activity gave me a better understanding of the vast distances of space.</p>
<p>I am excited by learning activities that provide discovery for the teacher as well as the students. The math approach at Fullerton IV Elementary School seems to offer this.</p>

http://www.edutopia.org/math-coaching-integrated-curriculum#comment-24291
<p>I really enjoyed watching the video and reading the blog about The Magic of Math. I am actually a large proponent of math as an investigation. My school district actually uses the math curriculum called "Investigations." It is a very hands-on math program in which students make meaning from math. The students are able to create their own learning, instead of being fed algorithms from a teacher. My only wish is that my school district found ways to integrate math into every discipline, just like Fullerton IV Elementary!</p>

<p>Tammy Russmussent is not the only one to hate math only to discover it was the basis for a true passion! It seems that only when we can truly understand and apply subjects to our lives and experiences, can we learn!</p>
