Multiplication Facts
This website contains the techniques, tips, and secrets used by master teachers of mathematics. Based on research, the authors argue that rote memory is one of the least effective ways of memorizing. They offer more effective strategies for teaching students the times tables and some strategies for helping with memorization, such as using rhyming words, pictures, stories and other activities. Much of the material here is drawn from a book called Memorize in Minutes: The Times Table, which is ava

Who Needs Algebra? Everyone! : Northwest Teacher, volume 6 number 1
Learning algebra doesn't have to be painful, and researchers are finding that the process is easier if children are introduced to algebraic reasoning early on. This issue of NW Teacher points out that students who begin learning algebra at the elementary level have a stronger foundation for higher-level mathematics. Algebra also helps pave the way for college and increased career opportunities. This issue helps schools explore new ways of bringing algebra to all students.

Energy Transfer
How can a Ping-Pong ball be made to bounce higher without throwing it downward harder? This material is part of a series of hands-on science activities designed to arouse student interest. Here students investigate energy transference and momentum by simultaneously dropping a Ping-Pong ball sitting directly above a golf ball and measuring the bounce height. The activity includes a description, a list of science process skills and complex reasoning strategies being used, and a compilation of appl

Building Roller Coasters
Students build their own roller coasters using pipe insulation and marbles, and then analyze them using principles of physics. They examine conversions between kinetic and potential energy and frictional effects to design roller coasters that are completely driven by gravity. A class competition is then held to determine the most innovative and successful roller coasters.

Fancy Feet
Students use the engineering design process to solve a real-world problem — shoe engineering! Working in small teams, students design, build and test a pair of wearable platform or high-heeled shoes, taking into consideration the stress and strain forces that it will encounter from the shoe wearer. They conclude the activity with a “walk-off” to test their shoe designs and discuss the design process.

5.3 Global warming
To be able to understand the importance of the environment for our health, we need to know a little about the interdependence between environment and humankind. This unit will look at interactions between plants, animals and the physical and chemical environment, as well as considering ways in which humans have altered, and are altering this environment. These changes have health implications that are not always immediately obvious. Frequently, we initiate changes that are going to have their ef

3.2 By medium

We can divide texts up by the medium in which they appear. This is a broad division that is technologically based. It may seem excessively obvious, but it can be quite revealing. For example, different media have different periodicities (frequency of appearances) – most magazines appear weekly or monthly, while newspapers are weekly or daily. Episodes of television programmes are most commonly also weekly or daily, but films appear on a different basis altogether, since, like books or CDs t

1 Introduction and overview

This unit is concerned with the very things that we, as ordinary people, talk about as a consequence of listening to radio, watching television or reading newspapers and magazines: the programmes and articles that constitute media output. We do not (except on rare occasions) experience celebrities face-to-face, as their celebrity is conditional on having their image disseminated far and wide. This unit examines the everyday evidence of celebrity activity – what academic media analyst
