La natura della mediazione offerta dai sistemi basati su micromondi allâ€™apprendimento della matema
In questo articolo prenderemo in esame il sistema ARI-LAB che abbiamo realizzato per sostenere gli alunni nello sviluppo di capacitÃ  nel problem solving aritmetico e cercheremo di descrivere alcune caratteristiche che questo software rende disponibile con il fine di valutarne le potenzialitÃ  sul terreno didattico. Nel fare ciÃ² assumeremo due riferimenti: da una parte l'analisi della natura del sapere coinvolto nel problem solving aritmetico, descritta nella prima parte di questo lavoro, dall'

Rose Bowl : can a football team score 11 points in a game?
This activity uses the history of the Rose Bowl football tournament to examine numerical combinations. It asks the student how many different ways a football team can end a game with 11 points, something that has never happened in Rose Bowl history. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, also considers possible numerical combinations for playing darts and introduces the concept of a perfect number. It suggests that students mak

Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This activity asks the student to determine the time in Cairo, Egypt, when it is 3:00 p.m. in San Francisco. It includes a map of the world with the time zones marked. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains how to determine the time in different time zones and what the prime meridian and the international date line are. Students see how positive and negative numbers relate to the time zones and are asked to think about

Cut the cake : what's a fair share?
In this activity students determine how to divide a square cake into six pieces with equal volume and surface area. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains why properties of three-dimensional objects can be determined by examining their two-dimensional faces. Students see how to use the perimeter measurement of the cake to find two possible ways to divide it. The activity page contains links to a solution hint, the solu

Putt-putt golf : can you make a hole-in-one?
This activity opens with an animation of a miniature golf course that shows how a player would make a hole-in-one by bouncing the golf ball off the wall of the course. Given that the angle of incidence will be equal to the angle of reflection, students are challenged to determine the point along the wall where the ball should be aimed. This activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains how the method of reflecting is used by astr

This activity opens with an animated picture of an access ramp over a three-step staircase, with steps 7 inches high and 10 inches wide. Students are asked to determine how far away the ramp should start in order to go up the steps. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains how slope, or the measurement of steepness, is important to civil engineers, landscapers, and surveyors. The hint states that ramps usually go up 1 ve

In this activity, students read graphs and interpret raw data to determine if there is a correlation between drinking soda and the rate of bone fractures in teenage girls. The activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 online mathematical challenges emphasizing real world uses of mathematics. Students are encouraged to organize data into tables to look for associations, but are cautioned that additional factors many influence the appearance of cause and effect. In other related math q

What's round, hard, and sold for 3 million dollars?
This activity challenges students to determine which is worth more today, Babe Ruth's 1927 home-run record-breaking ball or Mark McGwire's 70th home-run record-breaking ball that sold in 1999 for 3 million dollars. The activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 online mathematical challenges emphasizing real-world uses of mathematics. To solve this challenge, students build a table and observe the growth pattern as the value of Ruth's ball doubles every seven years. The activity's web

Superspace: One Thousand and One Lessons in Supersymmetry
We introduce superfields in chapter 2 for the simpler world of three spacetime dimensions, where superfields are very similar to ordinary fields. We skip the discussion of nonsuperspace topics (background fields, gravity, etc.) which are covered in following chapters, and concentrate on a pedagogical treatment of superspace. We return to four dimensions in chapter 3, where we describe how supersymmetry is represented on superfields, and discuss all general properties of free superfields (and the
