Regular Polygons Problems

One of my favourite lesson design is a sequence of problem solving tasks that requires repetition of same reasoning and analysis by varying the ‘mathematical context’ of the problem in increasing complexity. However the variation in the context of the problem should be such that they still share some properties. In the examples below, the… Read More »

NCTM Process Standards vs CCSS Mathematical Practices

The NCTM process standards, Adding it Up mathematical proficiency strands, and Common Core State Standards for mathematical practices are all saying the same thing but why do I get the feeling that the Mathematical Practices Standards is out to get the math teachers. The NCTM’s process standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections describe for me… Read More »

Bloom’s Taxonomy and iPad Apps

The original Bloom’s taxonomy include Knowledge, Comprehension, Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation. I was introduced to this when I was in college and I must admit it was not of much help to me in planning my math lessons. I just couldn’t fit it. The pyramid image was not of help at all and I think… Read More »
