Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics: the cross-experimentation approach adopted by the TELMA
This contribution deals with the work of TELMA, a European Research Team of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. In particular the "cross-experimentation" project is presented. Such project was developed by TELMA to understand the role played by theoretical frameworks in setting up experiments using Interactive Learning Environments (ILE) for mathematics. The paper focuses on the methodological dimension of this project.
Energy Detectives at Work
Students search for clues of energy around them. They use what they find to create their own definition of energy. They also relate their energy clues to the engineering products they encounter every day.
Assembling a Geologic History
Through a higher-order integration of concepts and observations, students can combine information from several field labs, all discussed in the Starting Point collection, to construct an overall geologic history of the local region. This site details the learning goals, teaching notes and materials, method of assessment, and context of use of this lab. It also provides links to additional references and resources.
Three Number Sense Activities
Game 1: Contig Game: This game challenges and extends the number sense experience students have gained from writing equivalent mathematical expressions for target numbers. Game 2: The 24 Game builds on students' ability to find equivalent names for numbers. Game 3: In Tribulation, students must search the game-board for 3 numbers in a row (vertically, horizontally or diagonally as in a word search) that combine to make the target number. In this game, however, there is a prescribed formula for c
Our Lives Were Healthier Before: Focus Groups With African American, American Indian, Hispanic/Latin
Focus groups were conducted to explore health-related beliefs and experiences of African American, Hispanic/ Latino, American Indian, and Hmong people with diabetes and engage community members in improving diabetes care and education for these populations. Eighty participants attended 12 focus groups, 3 per population. Major themes were loss of health attributed to modern American lifestyles, lack of confidence in the medical system, and the importance of spirituality. Participants recommended
Growing Ethnic Diversity
People from around the world continued to come to California in the early 1900s, many in search of work and a better life. These images reflect some of the diverse ethnic groups that came to the West Coast from locations around the globe. They also illustrate some of the challenges they faced in assimilating into California society.
Literature Games: Find the Authors
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! Among hundreds of letters, the names of Literature Laureates are hidden.
