The Wayne County Mathematics and Science Center supports student programs that integrate mathematics, science and technology. Efforts will continue to increase and strengthen the enrichment programs to service a larger percentage of students in the area school districts. Currently there is no funding for Student Services support in mathematics.
Math Resources for Tutoring Support
- Calculator Fun for Everyone!
- Cool Math: Algebra
- Hippo Campus
- Key Math: PreCalculus with Trigonometry
- Power Standards
- PreCalculus Online
- University of Houston: PreCalculus
- Virtual Math Academy
*Please note that we have not reviewed every single resource at the above sites. Some of the videos approach the mathematics by simply showing the algorithm and do not support the best instructional practices in mathematics. Our M/S Center support mathematics that helps students do the following:
- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
A GREAT NEW RESOURCE FOR MATHEMATICS TEACHERS AND STUDENTS!
A project of the University of Cambridge in the UK. NRICH is a team of qualified teachers who are also practitioners in RICH mathematical thinking. This unique blend means that NRICH is ideally placed to offer advice and support to both teachers and learners of mathematics. NRICH aims to:
- Enrich the experience of the mathematics curriculum for all learners
- Offer challenging and engaging activities
- Develop mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills
- Show rich mathematics in meaningful contexts
- Work in partnership with teachers, schools and other educational settings
For teachers of mathematics:
There are FREE enrichment materials (Problems, Articles and Games) that really can help to inspire and engage learners and embed RICH tasks into everyday practice. There is on-line support at all levels. For those learning mathematics:
- There are FREE and interesting mathematical games, problems and articles.
- Students can share solutions to mathematical problems.
- Mathematicians are available and can help solve problems - just 'Ask NRICH'!
It's a safe online space where mathematics students can talk to others with similar interests. A note for parents:
NRICH is a joint project between the Faculties of Mathematics and Education at The University of Cambridge UK. The Rich Resource Bank has been designed to meet the needs of learners from ages 5 to 19. The resources are tested and proven and do make a difference.
When you're wrapping a variety of shapes, it can be a challenge to wrap them neatly, but with a bit of measuring, thoughtful folding, and practice, your cuboid, pentahedron or equilateral triangular prism, cylinder, or squidgy-shaped presents can all look brilliantly and mathematically put together.
Mathematician Dr. Katie Steckles shares her logical and super tidy approach to mathematical present wrapping.
