4434Calibrated Peer Review
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=91408
Calibrated Peer Review (CPR) is a program, for networked computers, that enables frequent writing assignments without any increase in instructor work. In fact, CPR can reduce the time an instructor now spends reading and assessing student writing. CPR offers instructors the choice of creating their own writing assignments or using the rapidly expanding assignment library. If you believe in constructivist learning, writing is the most important tool that you have. But if you have a class of 300 students, grading essays challenges even the true believer. Calibrated Peer Review (CPR)can be used in classes of any size. CPR is based on the model of peer review in science. The student reads a document, either on-line or hard copy, then writes about it. When the student has demonstrated competence as a reviewer, the program delivers three peer documents on for review. The student answers content and style questions and assigns scores. Finally, the student does a self-review. The student grade comes from writing and reviewing. Even though the program is only in its third year, approximately 100,000 students have used it. Although CPR was designed for use in large chemistry classes, experience has shown that it can serve in many other disciplines, as well. Currently, business, chemistry, economics, English, and life science instructors are using CPR in college, graduate and professional, high schools and middle schools. CPR was developed in the Chemistry Department at U.C.L.A. with funding provided by the National Science Foundation and Howard Hughes Medical Institute.IXL

A+Click Math Self-study Tests and Skill Assessment for Grade 1 to Grade 12. It includes more than 1000 challenging problems and answers and tons of illustrations. The practice tests adapt to student ability. This website has a graduated set of problems, starting from very simple, to quite difficult. To progress to a new level, you have to answer five consecutive questions correctly. The questions are appropriate to elementary students; almost any second grader could answer the easiest. This is a good assessment test without being insulting or frustrating.Applied Math STAIR

This STAIR was designed as a review of formulas as mathematical models (Algebra I).DataAnalysis App for iPad
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=909175
'DataAnalysis is a general purpose iPad App for the plotting and fitting of all types of data that can be formulated as x,y pairs. The program can be used easily by both students and professionals. It is particularly useful for quick analyses of various types of data by curve fitting, value prediction via a standard curve, and analysis of kinetic data including enzyme kinetics.Data can be entered directly via the keyboard or imported from the Mail App as a text file (.txt), and comma separated value file (.csv). In addition, data can be imported via drag and drop within iTunes. Data files in txt, csv and native formats can be imported directly from Dropbox.After data entry the user has the option to average, baseline correct, and/or normalize the data before plotting and fitting.Plotting of the data is as simple as pressing the Plot button. The axes are autoscaled and the graph is immediately ready to add to a document or presentation. The user has a variety of options to customize the graph by altering the axes, axes labels, graph title, and changing the symbol, its size and color.The data can be fit to a variety of mathematical equations by non-linear regression including simple functions such as linear, 2nd and 3th order polynomials, power, exponential, log functions. Data can also be fit to more complex equations for such processes as radioactive decay, enzyme kinetics, 1st and 2nd order chemical reactions, as well as gaussian, logistics and surge functions. The fit can be overlaid on the data with different line widths, types and thicknesses.For many analytical situations, the data fit can be used as a standard curve to determine the value of unknowns. This analytical procedure is completely automated within DataAnalysis.The program output, graphics and text, can be copied, emailed, or uploaded to Dropbox in a variety of formats including PDF, PNG and TXT. The graphics in PDF format can be edited with programs like Adobe Illustrator™ as objects.DataAnalysis also supports multitasking and printing of input data as well as all forms of output.DataAnalysis has built in tool tips, comprehensive web based instructions and how-to videos available via the Help Menu.'This is a free appJames Peirce WTF Project

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=910609
'Jumbo Calculator is the super simple large-buttoned calculator for everyone, ages 2-92*. While sadly you can't feel the exquisite texture of its large plastic buttons (and the included solar panel doesn't actually charge your battery), Jumbo Calculator succeeds at its main purposes: adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. One size fits all.Features:· Easy to read and find buttons (you might be able to touch type on a touchscreen).· Retina graphics for iPad with Retina Display.· Simple gestures for backspace (swipe the calculator screen) and copy & paste (double tap).· A smaller version of the calculator in landscape for when you're just too tired to stretch your fingers.· VoiceOver support for blind and low-vision users.· Full support for entry via a Bluetooth keyboard, including ⌘C for copy and ⌘V for paste.'This app would be very helpful for those who are visually impaired.This is a free appMultiplication and Division of Fractions
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=532438
The lesson provides a real-world application for multiplying and dividing improper fractions and mixed numbers. The scenario is situated in the context of nutritional serving size. The lesson was intended for the use of review and reteaching with students. The lesson includes an assessment activity involving students applying multiplication and division of fractiosn to create a menu for a party identifying number of servings and total required amounts. Probability of Compound Events (StAIR Project)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=682700
This is a Stand Alone Instructional Resource project, for the subject of Algebra 1. This StAIR is done through PowerPoint 2010 and covers the topic of Probability…mostly probability of compound events. The point of this stair is that students can work their way through it on their own. The goal of this module is for students to master the concept on how to find the probability of compound events and review their knowledge on experimental and theoretical probability. Students review examples, vocabulary, watch videos, take mini quizzes, etc.
