Mathematics assessments should allow all students opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and skills as problem solvers. Looking at textbook word problems, we share a process for revising them using Universal Design for Learning.
Design projects to encourage your students’ self-efficacy and motivate mathematics learning by helping them apply their prior knowledge from real-world experiences.
Draw on two simulations to introduce compound events and help your class make connections between experimental and theoretical probabilities.
Examining the covariation of triangle dimensions and area offers a geometric context that makes analyzing a piecewise function easier for students.
