Product Description

By Randall Groth

This PDF file presents a chapter of Mathematics Curriculum: Issues, Trends, and Future Directions (72nd Yearbook) in a downloadable file that preserves the design and layout of the book while allowing users to search and print selected pages.

Chapter 11: Three Perspectives on the Central Objects of Study for Grades Pre-K−8 Statistics. Randall E. Groth (Salisbury University) examines three contemporary approaches to framing pre-K−8 statistics curricula. He discusses mathematical procedures, mathematical concepts, and the process of statistical investigation as three common central objects of study. The chapter suggests tasks’ required levels of cognitive demand and fidelity to the discipline of statistics as criteria for evaluating statistics curricula. This chapter also portrays the process of statistical investigation as an essential curricular component.

Fibonacci Stays Here Poster

Fibonacci stays here
THE GOLDEN RATIO is also referred to as the golden section, the golden mean, the golden proportion, the extreme and mean ratio, and the divine proportion. It has been used to ensure beauty and balance in art, architecture, music and design for centuries.
Here, the ubiquitous Fibonacci sequence shows up where it is least expected: in the logo of a Chicago hotel. Your students can discover how to construct and measure a golden rectangle, determine where the golden ratio appears in the pentagon formed by a 5-pointed starfish, and apply graphs of polar equations. (Solutions provided.)
Star Dancers - Poster
A STAR POLYGON can be thought of as the set of points formed by connecting the vertices of a regular polygon in a special manner. This poster explores star polygons and discovers some of their properties, arriving at some interesting generalizations. Problems include proving the radian measure of the sum of the interior angles of a given star polygon; making a table that organizes information about the radian measure of interior star polygon angles; and whether or not it is possible to create a human hexagram, heptagram, or octagram.

Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"

Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.
