4:47 PM | Logo Under Fire - a little history
I got some email about my previous blog (A Conference Experience Like No Other) asking me why Logo faded from the limelight after much hype about its potential to transform education. When Logo first came on the scene after Mindstorms was published (1980) enthusiasm about its potential for educational reform grew. Not only was Logo the first significant piece of educational software that included programming, but was also a catalyst for much discussion in schools about its potential for […]

8:48 AM | The Connection Between Real Life and Math
When it comes to math, I can imagine cold fear running down the center of many parents’ spines. I get it. I teach high school math, and I know the public has a love-hate relationship with it. (Minus the love.)

8:44 AM | Program Helps Fifth Graders Make Sense of Their Financial Futures
The first time some students learn about finances is during a high school economics class. Others learn by trial and error, but one program in the Tampa Bay area already has a history of helping students get an early start on making sense of their finances.

8:34 AM | Connected Teaching and Learning Tip: Let it Go
What if educators listened to Frozen’s Queen Elsa a little more and “Let it Go”? Technology integration in the classrooms tends to stall when educators get in the way. Schools take steps to prevent this — professional development, educator resources, strategic rollout initiatives — and yet incorporating technology into the classroom remains a challenge for many sites. How do we change this?

2:33 PM | Knowing What to Do is not Doing
A guest post by Bob Klein, Ohio UniversityIn Summer 2015, I attended the Academy of Inquiry-Based Learning Workshop in Portland that took place prior to MAA MathFest. While I had always come out relatively well in teaching evaluations, I also have been trying to improve my teaching. For the IBL workshop I redesigned my two fall courses (a capstone math content course for secondary education math majors, and a geometry content course for middle school teachers). Later that semester I […]

9:18 AM | Does it pay to be nice?
Yes, it does. And we have the maths to prove it. Yes, it does. And we're not just talking about that warm fuzzy feeling inside. Maths indicates that it pays in evolutionary terms too.

1:00 AM | Petersen Graph
Suppose you have a set with 5 elements. There are 10 ways to choose a 2-element subset. Form a graph with these 10 choices as vertices, and with two vertices connected by an edge precisely when the corresponding subsets are disjoint. You get the graph shown here, called the Petersen graph.

1:48 PM | The Power of Partnerships: From the Classroom to the Boardroom
For today’s students, forging a path from the classroom to the boardroom requires much more than tireless focus and persistent passion. More than ever before, students need opportunities to learn real-world, hands-on skills from actual STEM professionals—whether in afterschool programs or true work-based learning opportunities. Increasingly, it is these kinds of opportunities that help young people develop the important skills they need to climb the corporate ladder—like problem solving, […]

1:42 PM | STEMtistic on Display: Novice Science Teachers
Novice teachers often lack the resources and professional development to catapult their teaching strategies -- particularly in high-poverty schools. We know that educators, specifically STEM teachers, need our support. Investing in quality STEMworks programs focused on teacher professional development is a great place to start.Tags:  science, teachers
