'Reflections, NCTM's video-based, professional development Web site, is designed to help teachers — individually and collectively — examine their teaching of mathematics. The site’s components are designed to assist teachers in reflecting on the mathematics they teach, and as a tool to systematically observe, analyze, critique, and improve classroom practices. Reflections focuses on algebra in grades 3-8.Whether the site is approached through the six individual lessons or the five across-lesson topics, the heart of Reflections is a set of Critical Teaching Questions. For example:How effectively does the teacher determine when to clarify, explain, question or let a student struggle?What are the mathematical ideas in this lesson and how significant are they?When selected, each Critical Teaching Question provides you with a set of video clips from the lesson and from pre- and post-lesson discussions, with accompanying on-screen transcripts, and a set of reflective tasks and analyses that foster individual or collaborative reflection and analysis of the lesson, the mathematics taught, the pedagogy employed and the learning that occurred.'Statistics Quick Reference App for Android

״An inspiring way to operate calculator: split, drag and compare! It lets users enjoy a smooth and intuitive calculator operation that has never experienced before.Dragging answersWhen we do complicated calculations, the memory function keys (M+, M-, MC ….) may help. However, how many people really know how to use the memory function? By splitting the calculator into two, you can drag your answer from one calculator to another calculator to replace the traditional memory function.Comparing answersSometimes we want to compare answers. For instance, we want to compare the average cost per 20 people and 30 people. By splitting the calculator into two again, the corresponding answers can be shown on both calculators for you to compare the difference instantly.Copying answersUsers can even double click the number display panel to copy the number on the screen to wherever they want like email.Checking calculation historyUsers can scroll the history display panel to check to calculation records. Features:Split the calculator into two to replace memory function keys (M+, M-, MC ….) by dragging answers.The calculation history is still valid when user returns the software again.Double click the number display panel to copy the number to wherever you want.History display panel allows users to review the calculation history.״This app costs $.99Calc & Draw App for iPad
