Workshop 5: Idea-Making
Student idea-making in mathematics is the subject of this workshop. Professor Constance Kamii, who studied under Jean Piaget for 12 years, explains how you can adapt your teaching to help students construct their own mathematical ideas. You will see video of students engaged in “mind mathematics” articulate and defend their strategies to classmates, and you will cons

Key skills assessment unit: Application of number
Numerical and mathematical skills are used to describe and tackle a wide range of problems. These key skills are about understanding when particular techniques should be used, how to carry them out accurately and which techniques should be applied in particular situations. Developing your numerical, graphical and algebraic skills means being able to plan how you are going to use your skills over a period of time, monitoring your progress and then reviewing your approach. In developing and assess

Workshop 7: Children's Ways of Knowing
With Dr. Herbert Ginsburg. Children know a good deal of informal mathematics before they enter school. Clinical interviews help teachers understand what children know. In this session, you will see young children’s natural mathematical inclinations and watch as they construct their ideas. Observe Professor Ginsburg helping teachers of young children rethink t

1.4.1: Price ratios
This unit looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You wil also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index.

9 Patterns in nature and elsewhere
Patterns occur everywhere in art, nature, science and especially mathematics. Being able to recognise, describe and use these patterns is an important skill that helps you to tackle a wide variety of different problems. This unit explores some of these patterns ranging from ancient number patterns to the latest mathematical research.

Associative Property
Ms. Meyer teaches about the associative property.  She models an example of association with character figures. Next, she uses mathematical examples to answer these questions:  What is the associative property? Why does it have the name it does? How can you recognize it when you see it?

Peer Conversations for e-Learning in the Grid
We take the view of 'learning as a conversational process', and argue that this can be extended to include the notions of peer-group interactions among students, tutors, and even artificial agents. This in turn lends itself to an approach to distributed conversation which builds upon modern Instant Messaging tools, and extends such tools to include what we call enhanced presence: a way of monitoring the availability of (and interacting with) fellow students and tutors at a distance. We describ

Understanding Logical Statements, Part 2 of 5
Sal Khan continues his discussion using the same statement as the last video in this series, but adds a different logic problem to solve: "Identify the hypothesis and conclusion of the following statement, and determine whether the statement is always, sometimes, or never true." In this video, Sal offers an introduction to understanding mathematical logic statements. Sal uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. (06:43)

Understanding Logical Statements, Part 3 of 5
"Determine whether the statement is always, sometimes, or never true, and explain why." Sal Khan takes a mathematical statement and helps the viewer make sense out it. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. (03:12)

Inductive Reasoning, Part 1 of 3
In this video, Sal Khan uses a simple number pattern to help the viewer understand how to use inductive reasoning to figure out what the next number will be. (Because it is a simple number pattern, the viewer will know what the the next number is, but Mr. Khan explains how to answer the mathematical question using inductive reasoning.)Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. (02:0

Lugosi teaches math - Positive series2
Béla Lugosi teaches advanced mathematical concepts in this video. This video shows a variety of tests to prove positive series.  He begins with what is called a comparison test and formulates proofs. Lugosi's hidden love for mathematics is illuminated by his animated teaching style.  This video is geared to older, advanced mathematics learners.

1.77 Water Quality Control (MIT)
The course material emphasizes mathematical models for predicting distribution and fate of effluents discharged into lakes, reservoirs, rivers, estuaries, and oceans. It also focuses on formulation and structure of models as well as analytical and simple numerical solution techniques. Also discussed are the role of element cycles, such as oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus, as water quality indicators; offshore outfalls and diffusion; salinity intrusion in estuaries; and thermal stratification, eu

18.S34 Problem Solving Seminar (MIT)
This course, which is geared toward Freshmen, is an undergraduate seminar on mathematical problem solving. It is intended for students who enjoy solving challenging mathematical problems and who are interested in learning various techniques and background information useful for problem solving. Students in this course are expected to compete in a nationwide mathematics contest for undergraduates.

22.611J Introduction to Plasma Physics I (MIT)
In this course, students will learn about plasmas, the fourth state of matter. The plasma state dominates the visible universe, and is of increasing economic importance. Plasmas behave in lots of interesting and sometimes unexpected ways. The course is intended only as a first plasma physics course, but includes critical concepts needed for a foundation for further study. A solid undergraduate background in classical physics, electromagnetic theory including Maxwell's equations, and mathema
