4434Kindergarten Literacy and Math
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=272962
This website is a great guide for teachers. It has several interactive links to choose from that cover multiple standards in regards to math and literacy, for grade levels K-12. The contents are broken down into specific concepts, i.e. shapes, counting to 20, addition, etc. each topic has a variety sites to choose from. The sites are interactive, fun, an easy to navigate. The interactive sites are easy enough for students to complete the activities on their own. This site also offers assessment assistance, and on-line practice modules.Middle School Portal 2
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=899630
'The Middle School Portal 2: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2) project supports middle grades educators with high-quality, standards-based resources and promotes collaboration and knowledge-sharing among its users. Educators use MSP2 to increase content knowledge in science, mathematics, and appropriate pedagogy for youth ages 10 to 15. MSP2 employs social networking and digital tools to foster dynamic experiences that promote creation, modification, and sharing of resources, facilitate professional development, and support the integration of technology into practice.MSP2 also includes the development of virtual learning experiences designed for middle school aged youth through which young people increase their ability to explore, discover ideas, problem solve, think critically, communicate, use technology in a productive and responsible manner, and become globally aware. These experiences will help them become aware of educational pathways that lead to careers in science, mathematics, and technology.'National Curve Bank

A collection of links to sites that discuss famous curves, as well as a wealth of other mathematical topics. Most are a mix of math, history, and computer graphics. Source code is usually available.Virginia Science Activities, Models & Simulations (SAMS)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=799915
The Virginia Science Activities, Models and Simulations project engages students in middle and high school in practices that are essential for learning science through inquiry. The activities involve asking questions or defining problems, using models or sensors, collecting data, interpreting results, using mathematics, technology and computational thinking, constructing explanations and designing solutions based on evidence.These activities, models and simulations are correlated to the 2010 Science Standards of Learning and Curriculum Framework and are also organized by standard as stand-alone tools.Why Was the Computer Invented When It Was?

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=520936
Summary This paper presents concrete suggestions on improving teaching, especially mathematics and other natural and social sciences. Java applets are presented as tools for creating interactive content for e-learning as modern methods of teaching that directly affect the quality of the teaching process. In addition to creating quality interactive content, applets are presented in this paper as tools for evaluating the teaching of mathematics, and they also have application in the customer support students in the form of virtual classrooms and laboratories. This paper presents the possibilities of Java applets and their in-implementing systems for e-learning. Conducted the research readiness teachers and students for a modern approach to teaching math and also made an analysis of student achievement after the inclusion of interactive content in the form of applets and applications of the course which was developed within the system for e-learning.Code.org: A Sensational Success in Education
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=894249
Code.org provides an outstanding, creative, entertaining, and educational model for teaching students and adults how to write code for computer programming languages. Take their "Hour of Code(TM) Challenge" and you begin to see why "anybody can learn how to code." Seeing the remarkable success of young students in learning how to write lines of code is inspirational in seeing how these students are beginning to take social responsibility for their own Education in learning how to apply their own creativity and imagination in creating computer apps and games for others to enjoy. Coding is the Global Language of Science and Technology that students need to learn today in school.Integration Wiris Tools with System for e-learning as a way of Improving the Teaching of Mathematic
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=583364
INTEGRACIJA WIRIS ALATA SA SISTEMOM ZA E-UČENJE KAO NAČIN UNAPREĐENJA NASTAVE MATEMATIKEApstrakt: U ovom radu je naveden predlog kako unaprediti nastavu matematike pa su u okviru istog razmatrane mogućnosti Wiris alata za kreiranje testova u nastavi matematike. Alat se može lako implementirati u odgovarajući sistem za elektronsko učenje. Wiris alat kao krajnji proizvod izvozi aplete odnosno simulacije. Navedene su metode i postupci provere i ocenjivanje kao i mogućnosti dostupnog alata za ocenjivanje. Dati su i konkretni primeri upotrebe Wiris alata za ocenjivanje u nastavi matematike kao što su npr. izrada testova sa višestrukim odgovorom i sa drugim tipovima pitanja.Learning Objects for Introductory Programming
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=314063
These learning objects have been developed at London Metropolitan University by staff in the Learning Technology Research Institute (LTRI) and Department for Computing, Communications Technology & Mathematics, and at Bolton Institute. Their development has been supported by the HEA centre for Information and Computer Science.They have been developed as part of a project to help tackle a significant educational problem: the teaching and learning of introductory programming. There were two primary concerns in developing the learning objects: they should be pedagogically effective, and they should be maximally reusable.The project has developed:innovative principles for authoring learning objects a set of learning objects that embody rich pedagogical techniques such as interactive visualisation and scaffolding a version of the objects to be used on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). The learning objects have been used by over 1,000 students in two academic years at London Metropolitan University, and Bolton Institute of Higher Education. In the first year there were marked improvements in student pass rates, which were largely sustained in the second year. Their use has been thoroughly evaluated, and some of the evaluation data and the module results are presented on the Evaluation page. The objects won a European Academic Software Award in 2004.Mathematics Pipeline Digital Repository
