4434Engaging different student populations in a service course
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=491812
In addition to teaching courses for math majors, Dr. Sutherland teaches math courses that act as service courses for many departments within the University. These courses are typically taught with multiple lecturers covering the same material in lectures sized between 35 and 260, with total enrollments of up to 1000 students. There are unique challenges to teaching these courses since students are often only present to fulfill general education requirements and mathematics is not a specific interest for them. Scott discusses the pros and cons of integrating discipline specific examples into his classes. He uses multiple digital video cameras to capture the development of math problems on the classroom blackboards and interactive software to show dynamically the effects of changing formulae and values on structures etc. Dr. Sutherland also uses a web based homework management system called WebAssign and has found that the use of clickers has had a significant effect of the performance of his students.Stony Brook University TLT website:https://tlt.stonybrook.edu/FacultyServices/IiE/Lists/Show%20List/DispForm.aspx?ID=29&Source=https%3A%2F%2Ftlt.stonybrook.edu%2FFacultyServices%2FIiE%2FLists%2FShow%2520List%2FSelect%2520Show.aspxMathematics Probability Lesson Plan for 3rd Grade
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=504408
This lesson plan is geared towards third graders. It is a comprehensive lesson plan that deals with Probability. The lesson objective for the students would be to find if an event is likely, unlikely, certain, or impossible. This lesson plan is a modified version of Lesson 2 in the Probability Chapter of the Houghton Mifflin Mathematics Textbook.A+Click Math Skill Self-Study Tests for Grade 1 to 12
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=504906
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

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
