H...All in all, you make a very convincing argument. However, for points 2 and three, you failed to mention a specific implication: many students have no idea what they are doing when they do their algebra homework, me included. Points 2 and three are entirely based around the assumption that the students understand the math, or that they are only a short distance away from grasping it. <br /> Quite a fair number of students have given up trying to wrap their brains around the material and have started instead blindly memorizing steps and equations in order to get a passing grade. I usually don't understand why an equation works the way it does until weeks to months after the test. A friend of mine recently said to me, "Hey, I figured out something! After you finish factoring something, it's supposed to equal the original equation! It's the same, just stretched out!" We did factoring last year.<br /> I'm not saying this is all students, but it's a fairly good-sized amount. But the ones that don't understand, cannot possibly use algebra to "think in a structured, logical and critical manner" or "develop the habit of working smarter, not harder".RandomRiterRamblerhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13178894786580977994noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8209465975083109482.post-55351445189541612412011-10-15T13:29:40.164-04:002011-10-15T13:29:40.164-04:00Hi -is the Joy of Stats video stuck? -I haven'...Hi -is the Joy of Stats video stuck? -I haven't managed to get it to load; and it's a private video on YouTube.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8209465975083109482.post-26629208937023821282011-07-22T00:23:36.263-04:002011-07-22T00:23:36.263-04:00Nice article, thanks for the information.Nice article, thanks for the information.rental mobilhttp://griyamobilkita.webs.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8209465975083109482.post-80332335658713937452011-04-20T05:36:39.135-04:002011-04-20T05:36:39.135-04:00Basic math is going to be essential in your everyd...Basic math is going to be essential in your everyday life, in my opinion.

Somehow I passed the New York Regents, but my skills weren't up to snuff in college, so I had to take a remedial math course. Later, I passed college calculus with a B, which I worked hard to earn. <br /><br />Now I see how much has changed in teaching Math in the Cambridge (MA) Public School district. They use TERC, which teaches number sense. Although it's not perfect, it's a step in the right direction. Just by being an assistant in the fifth-grade and subbing, it makes more sense to me, and my children are doing well.Theresa Milsteinhttp://theresamilstein.blogspot.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8209465975083109482.post-26368157662814793962009-12-14T14:06:44.602-05:002009-12-14T14:06:44.602-05:00Clicking over to veoh, there were all sorts of uns...Clicking over to veoh, there were all sorts of unsavory videos listed on the same page.

I agree fractions are everywhere. I've long held that the most important mathematics ever taught are middle school math (ratio/proportion/number sense) because we use them daily whether we want to or not. I will also argue that we seldom use them the way they are taught (procedurally with a focus on computation). <br /><br />I wish your student could say, I use fractions all the time because they were able to connect their daily experience with their classroom experience. Unfortunately, his/her reality is that they don't use fractions in their daily experience, but I don't think that is their fault. <br /><br />Great post!rlodan01http://www.blogger.com/profile/03329117302337300608noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8209465975083109482.post-17014126019949221192009-10-28T13:14:24.655-04:002009-10-28T13:14:24.655-04:00Hello,
