Math Lessons Collaboration Daily 06/16/2010

  • Nice set of applets that let students explore fraction understanding from multiple perspectives and models. I love that they use a variety of models for fractional development, including bars (multiple versions), sets, and linear.
    From the site:  "Why Fractions? Fractions are one of the earliest stumbling blocks for students in math. Our goal is building conceptual understanding in fractions as a basis for comprehension in all later topics."

  • Instructional strategies determine the approach a teacher may take to achieve learning objectives.
    Five categories of instructional strategies and explanation of these five categories can be found within this site.

  • Great article on looking at test preparation differently. It's not about answering a lot of questions similar to the ones on the test, but about learning processes that help students understand how to garner information from text/problems, etc.
