Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 1. Following Children's Ideas in Mathematics
An unprecedented long-term study conducted by researchers at Rutgers University followed the development of mathematical thinking in a randomly selected group of students for 12 yearsfrom first grade through high schoolwith surprising results. In an overview of the study, we look at some of the conditions that made the students math achievement possible.,5 min. Mathematics in Free Play?

Science In Focus: Energy
Interview with Dr. Sallie Baliunas about forms of energy including springs and magnets.,Dr. Sallie Baliunas explains the energy transfers that occur when she pushes down on a spring and then releases it. She explains that she adds potential energy to the spring when she pushes it down, energy that is bound up in the coils. When she releases the spring, the potential energy becomes energy of motion. Some potential energy is used to move air molecules, producing sound, and some is lost to heat

Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 5. Building on Useful Ideas
One of the strands of the Rutgers long-term study was to find out how useful ideas spread through a community of learners and evolve over time. Here, the focus is on the teachers role in fostering thoughtful mathematics.,Jersey City: Ice Cream Problem Algebra II teacher Gina Kiczek introduces a problem that helps her students learn the difference between permutations and combinations.

Private Universe in Project in Mathematics: Workshop 6: "Possibilities of Real Life Problems"
Students come up with a surprising array of strategies and representations to build their understanding of a real-life calculus problembefore they have ever taken calculus.,In a voluntary two-week summer workshop, high school seniors from Kenilworth and New Brunswick work on a real-life problem ("The Catwalk") based on Eduard Muybridge's sequence of 24 photographs of a cat in motion. The question, How fast is the cat moving in frame 10 and frame 20?, deals with some of the fundamental idea

Private Universe Project in Mathematics: Workshop 4: Thinking Like a Mathematician
What does a mathematician do? What does it mean to think like a mathematician? This program parallels what a mathematician does in real life with the creative thinking of students.,How a Mathematician Approaches Problems - Fern Hunt, a mathematician at the National Institute for Standards and Technology, is seen as she collaborates with colleagues to solve difficult technical problems. Using the metaphor of the childrens game Towers of Hanoi, she explains her approach to solving problems. 15 m

A system can be defined as a group of elements that are formed and interact to achieve goals or objectives. You spend all your life with systems – your home, your work, your family, the school you attended. An organisation is a system in which a number of people work together to achieve particular objectives.

Within each system there are smaller systems. The one everyone knows is the solar system. Within it, each of the planets is, itself, a system. Taking Earth, each country i
