Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This resource from the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives shows students how to rename fractions to have a common denominator and then add them. It is appealing because it visually engages the students by showing them what happens to a unit (a rectangle is used here) as the denominator increases or decreases. As the denominator increases or decreases, the partitions are shown accordingly, and the effect on the numerator is shown as well. This is a convenient, visual way to show students how to manipulate fractions for adding.

This 1-minute video created by the UK Department of Education as an algebra lesson starter is based around how many friends can sit at a birthday party table. The video shows the birthday boy and girl sitting at opposite ends of the table with their guests sitting two on either side. As more tables are added and the number of children grow, a pattern starts to appear. Children are asked to predict how many children could come to the party if there were 100 tables.

Contributing to Teacher Preparation through "Broader Impacts" Activities
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

The national shortage of highly qualified math and science teachers points to a need to focus more attention and resources on teacher preparation. However, physics faculty often have little time to spare for activities outside of traditional research and teaching. The National Science Foundation (NSF) has strongly supported teacher preparation efforts, primarily through the Directorate of Education and Human Resources. What may be lesser known is that the NSF "broader impacts" criterion opens the door for more conventional research proposals to include teacher preparation activities as well.
