In this 10-minute video Lynne McClure introduces NRICH's Magic Vs problem to a small group of teachers in a professional development setting. She demonstrates how a "Low Threshold, High Ceiling" problem, with minimal skill requirements, can be approached by nearly all learners, and yet can elicit sophisticated mathematical thinking. As Lynne leads participants through a sequence of challenges, she models good questioning and communication practices and discusses instructional strategies. The Magic V problem and a follow-up video are cataloged separately.

This 11-minute Flash presentation explains CCSS Mathematical Practice 61and illustrates how it applies in the K-5 classroom. It addresses Implications for classroom instruction such as the need to build vocabulary and comprehension skills, to teach a problem solving process and the need to try a new strategy if the first or second doesn't work the first time. Practical strategies for implementation and sample problems are included. A transcript of the audio is available for download (PDF).

This item is Part 1 of a two-part experiential learning activity for beginning physics students relating to the universal law of gravitation. This scenario involves Spacecraft Galilei, which is orbiting Iris, a planet with a smaller radius and lower mass than Earth. Students must determine the acceleration at orbital height and the force exerted on Galilei in orbit. They will then calculate the gravitational acceleration on the surface of the planet, the force exerted by the planet on a measuring instrument, and the time it takes for that instrument to fall to the planet’s surface. <i>Allow two hours</i> In keeping with Problem-Based Learning (PBL) pedagogy, students will separate useful from irrelevant data, then collaborate to apply physics in finding solutions. This resource includes a printable student manual and links to background information on the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) instructional method. Registered users may also access a teacher's guide. <b>SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE</B> for a link to Part 2 of this problem.

This item is a PBL (Problem-Based Learning) activity for introductory physics relating to conservation of momentum, frictional force, and kinetic energy. This scenario involves a car crash in which a small car is struck broadside by a vehicle of more than double its mass. Students have the task of determining whether either driver engaged in reckless driving. To solve the problem, students work cooperatively to determine the coefficient of friction on the roadway, velocity of each vehicle at the time of the crash, and velocity of the vehicles prior to braking. They will use a combination of strategies: Work-Energy Theorem and kinematic equations. PBL is an instructional method designed to strengthen student competency in reasoning and problem-solving. The activities mirror real scenarios encountered by practicing scientists and engineers. Learners sift through information to separate useful from irrelevant data, locate missing information on their own, and then apply physics in finding solutions. This resource includes a printable student manual and a password-protected teacher's guide with solutions and tips for instructors.

In this three-part math activity, learners explore shapes. In part one, learners identify, describe, and classify two-dimensional shapes. Learners use square tiles to duplicate shapes on a card, identify 2D shapes in the room, sort shapes according to their attributes, and use shapes to creature pictures and stories. In part two, learners experiment with pattern blocks and decorate paper bag vests with shapes and patterns. In part three, learners are introduced to three-dimensional shapes as they use Geoblocks to explore geometric concepts.
