Statistics: Show Mapping Worlds is an amazing tool that allows users to break apart maps based on many different statistics. Imagine being able to show an interactive map that shows how many people are alive in the world and how old they are and then breaking down how many people have died of different diseases or are in a particular job or age bracket. This is a truly interesting tool that makes social issues, history, and other subjects spring to life. Many classrooms can use this as a way to enhance presentations and also make quick visual representation of data. http://show.mappingworlds.com/?utm_source=eduTecher+-+April+2012+Newsletter&utm_campaign=April+Newsletter&utm_medium=email

New Approach to Gemetry takes Shape with iPads in Schools

Wowzers Tackles Elementary Math with Online Games

  • By Dian Schaffhauser
  • 07/02/12
A company that creates educational virtual worlds has introduced a new online product designed to help third through fifth graders get better at math. Wowzers comes from Brain Hurricane, a company that develops academic material for K-8 students in reading and math. The new release, which combines adaptive math instruction with game-based collaboration, was shown during the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference, which took place in San Diego last week.
The instruction can follow a number of instructional standards, including Common Core State Standards. Activities include the use of student avatars, virtual "math missions," games, quizzes, and feedback on right or wrong answers. Students can use coin awards to outfit their avatars. Teachers can set up and manage a classroom of users; adjust the amount of time students can use the program; set the program to be adaptive in order to adjust questions based on a student's understanding of the subject; review scores by class, section, or student; check a dashboard for student performance; and do reporting. The program also provides teachers with professional development for specific topics and can deliver reports to parents about their students.
"As an educator for many years, I saw first-hand that even the top students will lose focus if lessons aren't fun and engaging," said Reed Howard, founder of Wowzers. "Wowzers' unique platform truly offers the most individualized, engaging learning experience available today, while the analytics and online reporting offer teachers real-time updates on each student's progress, allowing them to adjust their curriculum accordingly."
Wowzers is priced at $25 per student or $7,000 per school and delivers 33 weeks of unlimited access to hosted content.
The Web-based service recently won the CODiE award for the best classroom management system and K-12 solution from the trade group Software & Information Industry Association, which runs an annual education-focused award program.

Just as the number line is a useful tool for helping students compare and order whole numbers, this Interactive Whiteboard Teacher Tool uses a virtual manipulative to help students compare and order fractions from 0 to 1. In addition to understanding that fractions can be used to represent a part of a whole, it’s critical for students to learn and understand that fractions are numbers with actual values that can either be ordered or considered equivalent. Your class will use landmark fractions and fraction equivalence to place fractions on the number line.

Students have improved number sense with fractions when they relate fractions to a context. Therefore, this Interactive Whiteboard Teacher Tool allows your students to choose either time or money to decompose a given fraction. For example, a clock model is a more useful context for decomposing 2/3, while most students likely feel more comfortable decomposing 7/10 by using money. When either context would work (for example, 3/4), you can gain valuable insights about how your students make sense of fractions in their own minds.

Our fraction bar virtual manipulative engages your class in thinking strategically about which fractional pieces are best to solve the given problem. Your students’ strategies and understanding of fraction equivalence become transparent when you use this interactive tool with them. Your class can have great conversations about solution strategies, efficiency, equivalence, and multiple methods for solving the problem.

Rocket math appeals to the most basic instinct in kids, which is usually not to learn maths, but is to collect stuff and build stuff. Of course it covers the essential 4 operations but also covers topics such as telling the time, money, shapes and even square roots. Kids get to build a rocket which is powered by a realistic physics engine and launch their rocket into space to answer questions and collect maths objects. Designed for kids aged 4-12 years old, there’s plenty of maths (and rocket building) in this app to keep kids usefully occupied for many hours.

This beautifully designed app uses classic Montessori methods to teach maths basics such as number recognition, sequence, and spatial relationships. It even introduces odd and even numbers. Montessori resources such as number rods and sandpaper letters are reinvented for the digital age to provide a rich learning experience for preschoolers. This app also features language support for 7 different languages.

10 Teach Me – 1st Grade – $0.99

app icon
Although not exclusively a maths app, Teach Me – 1st Grade deserves a mention here for the way it manages to engage children. My 5 year old proclaimed that he didn’t need to go to school after playing with the Kindergarten version of this game over several weeks. Taking advantage of children’s desire to be like grown-up’s and buy things, the various themed stores offer stickers that kids can buy using coins they earn during game play. The handwriting recognition engine helps to reinforce number formation and addition and subtraction are taught from and to 20.

11 Math Evolve – $1.99

Math Evolve’s graphically rich “Story Mode” mixes the usual 4 operations maths practice with classic arcade-style gameplay, creating a true synergy between learning and play. Players embark on epic math adventure across three unique environments: microscopic, ocean, and space. The app’s “Practice Mode” can be used to provide customizable math practice. Works on both the iPhone and the iPad with one purchase.

12 Motion Math Zoom – Free

app icon
app icon
Motion Math Zoom’s zoomable, stretchable number line is missing some numbers – it’s up to your child to put the numbers back where they belong. What works really well is that the game uses concrete objects to represent abstract numbers: from dinosaurs in the thousands down to amoebae in the thousandths. Fun animal animations and sound effects help school children master the number line, and get a real feel for how big (or small) numbers really are. The first 6 levels are free, and a further 18 levels can be accessed with an in-app purchase.

13 Doodle Numbers HD – Free

app icon
An addictive and simple family number game, Doodle Numbers HD offers plenty of arithmetic practice. Why spend time mindlessly matching coloured shapes when with this game you can clear the game board by matching numbers based on the rules given at each level. Scoring a consistent 4.5 stars from nearly 1000 reviews, this app makes arithmetic a fun family activity!

14 Super 7 – $0.99

app icon

A favorite in our house, it’s easy to dismiss Super 7 as being a simple maths game as the numbered discs slowly float onto the screen. However minutes later as you’re frantically working out addition sums with numbers (including negative numbers), while making sure certain increasingly fast floating discs don’t touch each other, you’ll realize that both your mental maths and your reaction skills have undergone some targeted training. 4.5 stars from over 8000 ratings says it all.

15 Brain Tuner 2 Pro – $0.99

app icon
app icon
This brain training maths app takes addition, subtraction, multiplication and division questions and turns them into a challenging math game for adults and children. In each of the 5 game modes, players earn “brain cells” as they answer questions. There’s a game center and a multiplayer mode where players can play over the internet.

16 Math Ninja HD – $1.99

app icon
app icon
Combining cool video game play with maths means that kids won’t realize how much math they’re actually doing while playing Math Ninja. You can customize the game to focus on particular operations and number ranges while your child defends themselves against Tomato-San, who is building a robotic army to steal their tasty math treasure!

How Do We Get More Students Interested in Math, Science & Tech Careers? [INFOGRAPHIC]
September 07, 2011 by Ben Parr 38
CLOSE
In the next seven years, more than a million jobs will open up that require specialized technology skills, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. But there won’t be enough qualified college graduates to fill them. Are we doing enough to get kids interested in math and science?
Harris Interactive conducted two surveys on behalf of Microsoft to understand the shortage of students entering science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)-related fields. One survey focused on parents of K-12 students and the other surveyed college students pursuing STEM degrees.
Why do students choose to pursue math or science? The answer appears to vary by gender. Forty-nine percent of female STEM students say it was to make a difference, and 61% of male students said that games or toys in their childhoods sparked their interest. For 68% of the female respondents, a teacher or class got them interested in science, math, engineering or technology.
Many of the students surveyed said they majored in STEM for work reasons — 68% mentioned good salary and 66% mentioned job potential; 68% of those same students also said they majored in STEM because they found it stimulating and challenging.

Harris Interactive asked parents about their perception of STEM education in K-12. It found that 93% of parents believe that STEM education should be a priority in the U.S., but only 49% believe it is treated as a priority. And while 50% of parents want to see their children pursue careers in STEM, only 24% said they were willing to spend extra money to make their children successful in math and science classes.

We think any teacher will agree that kids learn infinitely more when they get to touch, see, hear and explore content. And that's why science labs are such a powerful learning tool. One problem: Science lab equipment and materials are expensive. And most schools simply don't have the budget to provide teachers with the tools they want to make their science labs great. Here are 5 easy work-arounds to help you expose your students to science in a hands-on way even if you're on a budget.
    1. 1. Use Technology. We're guessing that the vast majority of K-12 schools don't have access to high-end science equipment like high-powered microscopes. But that doesn’t have to stop you from letting your students experience these tools first-hand. Use your interactive whiteboard to stream in videos and podcasts of university lessons using this high-tech equipment. Or use iPad apps to teach your students how to break down sub-atomic particles. The possibilities are endless.
    2. 2. Go Local. If you can't bring science into your school, bring your students to the science. Arrange for a field trip to a local pond to study habitats. Or head to a rock cavern to study geological formations. Or head to a museum to study scientific processes.
    3. 3. Create a Mobile Science Lab. Collaborate with other teachers at your school to create a mobile science lab that includes essential equipment that can be shared amongst many classrooms.
4. Use Your Natural Environment. School yard gardens, butterfly gardens, habitats and ponds make great life science labs at a fraction of the cost of most major indoor lab equipment.
5. Apply for Grant Money. Have a piece of equipment or certain lab supplies that you know would make an impact on student learning? Research and apply for teacher grant money and get the resources you need.

10 Healthy Eating Tips for Kids and Parents:
In order to maintain the health of your family here are the ten guidelines which you can try:-


Which food is best for your child

Only the parents understand the liking of their children. When you go to buy packed food ensure that it has **sufficient nutrients** which are required by the body. Though the kids will not like these foods but make it a habit that once in a day they have a nutritional diet. This will help in building a strong body and a strong mind. Give fewer snacks as it just meant for taste and not for completing the diet. There are a variety of nutrional foods available in the market so collect all and store them in your fridge. In this the way the kids will develop interest and they will start eating the food.
Develop eating habits at young age This is a good approach because once they grow up it will be difficult to change their eating habits from the very tender age teach them to eat good food which is rich and healthy.
Involve them in more extra circular activitiesNowadays kids spend most of their time in either watching TV out in playing computer games do to which they become fat. While watching TV they like to have junk food and **more their watch TV** the more amount of snacks will go in their body. Limit their time of watching TV and playing games so that they find other interesting things which will keep them active. This will help in losing fat and also become a little active in other things than sitting for hours in front of TV.
Include sweets Sweets are very much loved by kids but it should be given rarely. Too much of sweets are not good for health so limit the number accordingly. Once in a week is a quite good for them.
Inculcate the habit of eating on time If you want your children to be healthy do not allow them to eat any time they want. There should be a time gap between every diet they take. It is not necessary that they eat in bulk quantity but it is essential that they eat less and after some time. This is a good habit as food has to be digested completely or you can suffer from indigestion.
Don’t make your kids choosyThere are some children who have a very specific choice and so they do not eat many things which are good for health. This is a kind of spoiling your child so control their eating habits. This does not means that you do not give them the choice in eating but stick to your plan on including a good diet.
Prepare menuWhile preparing the menu remove all junk food from the list but include healthy foods which are good for health.

Become initiators

The parents should also eat the same food which the kids are eating or else they will not follow the menu. Teach them **good eating habits** which will inspire them.
Drinks can be a change for them You can give a change to your kids by offering drinks which they like. Don’t give soft drinks but fresh juices can be an excellent idea.
Appreciate them but not with food Some of the parents show their love by offering chocolates so don’t do that. This will spoil their eating habits. You can take them to parks and make them enjoy but not with parties and other stuff that develops bad eating habits in them.
