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

A study measuring the connection between biological scenarios and mathematical models.Multiplication 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.
