Play along with me just for a moment.  Be honest now.  When I say the word “scientist,” what is the first image that comes to mind?  Write down a few words that describe that image.  Are you finished?  When you are, read the following account of what happened at a recent school meeting.

Gearing up for the opening of the 2011-2012 school year, over 200 principals and assistant principals of a city school district recently attended a leadership institute with a particular emphasis on instructional leadership.  One of the sessions during the three-day meeting had participants draw the image that first came to mind when given the same word I gave you —scientist.  Before revealing the results, it is important to note that more than half of the people in the leadership positions were female and half were minorities. § Read the rest of this entry…

Using Multimedia to Redefine a Word Problem

§ June 20th, 2011 § 1 Comment- Add yours§ Filed under From the Elevated Math Team § Tagged , , , , , ,

Traditionally, math problems have been posed on the static page of a textbook with all the data provided.  If students correctly plug the data into a given formula, TA-DA!  The correct answer appears.  But does this type of math instruction encourage a student’s intuition and teach the patience needed when faced with an actual life problem?  Dan Meyer proposes a creative alternative in this YouTube video and explains how both math and problem solving can be redefined by using multimedia to bring realistic problems to the math classroom.

ung woman who is deliberating about what research to conduct for her doctoral dissertation.  The year is 1982. Classroom technology consists of a few laser discs, film projectors, slide projectors, and a wonderful new device called the overhead projector.  Tests are still run off of the mimeograph machine with the purple ink that smells so good. High-tech individuals have boom boxes, cassette players, big boxy televisions and Kodak cameras.  Home films are taken with heavy, unwieldy video cameras still using super 8 mm film with the newest ones accommodating the newest thing—VHS tapes.  To have data analyzed, keycards are coded, punched and run through a mainframe computer. A few individual desktop computers exist, but they are large, bulky, and just a step above an electric typewriter.

Even so, there are visionaries at Mississippi ETV in Jackson MS who think math instruction for elementary students can be enhanced through video. They believe it so strongly that money is spent to produce a series of math lessons called ‘Figure Out,’ featuring a talking, teaching computer named Mac and real life kids. But they need someone to conduct a research project to test its effectiveness with students before the decision can be made to produce the full series to be featured as a weekly ETV series.   So, a contest of sorts is launched.  A Mississippi ETV Researcher’s Award gives the best proposal a $1000 grant to be used for the project. § Read the rest of this entry…
