How can you get your students to think? How can you get mathematics to be about more than just memorizing steps and procedures? Teachers can increase student participation and depth of understanding by making a few slight changes to any mathematical concept. Planet Super User, Tabitha Savage, suggests a few effective changes to get you started.
Mathematician Anne Price ponders the well established link between mathematics and music, and the many mathematical opportunities that students can explore around sound frequency.
When we think about what opportunities our students have in the life of work, it is concerning to think that we are preparing young people for jobs that have not yet been created using technology that hasn't yet been invented. Keeping that in mind, how do we build skills for learning, life and work? Promethean Planet's Early Years and Pre-School Technology expert, Lorraine Munro, shares how she does this with her own young learners.
We are celebrating our resources and thanking our members after reaching the 1.5 million member milestone.
Place value is quite possibly one of the most important mathematics skills a student must master if they are to be successful at higher math. Multiple digit addition, subtraction, multiplication, money and number composition/decomposition are just a few of the many mathematics concepts that depend on a solid place value foundation. In her latest blog post, Tabitha Savage shares some of her favorite place value activities.
So you've found and downloaded a PDF.
Let's say it's one of the great PDF
resources you can find on Promethean Planet. Now,
what can you do with that PDF in a 21st Century classroom? In this blog post, Lisa
Dubernard looks at a specific PDF she found on Planet and shares ideas on how to
make it more interactive.
