Fraction Worksheets
http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/27/fraction-worksheets-3.htm
<p>This week, I put together <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/od/fractionsrounding1/ss/Shade-the-Fraction-Worksheets.htm">10 worksheets for basic fractions</a>. The fraction is given and the student is to shade the area to show the correct fraction. Lots of authentic learning experiences are needed when fractions are involved. Remember, fractions represent both parts of a whole and parts of a set. Consider a dozen eggs and what half of a dozen eggs would be? Eggs are part of a set, however, if I ask for a half of a rectangle, this fraction represents part of the whole.</p>

http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/26/effective-method-to-study-for-math.htm
<p>It's that time of year where tests and exams are plentiful in order to determine those year end marks. Many of you will be studying by cramming, burning the midnight oil, going over various concepts, working through equations and <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/u/ua/formulas/MemorizeFormulas.htm#ua_form">memorizing formulas</a> to name a few. However, I would like to suggest a method to study that can be used all year long, it's called taking effective notes in math. If you've wondered how taking notes in math works, <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/od/mathhelpandtutorials/a/Improve-Your-Note-Taking.htm">this article will get you started.</a> After all, note taking is an effective strategy in other subjects and just needs a different approach in math.</p><p style="background:#f5f3ef;border:1px solid #d5d0bf;clear:both;padding:.5em;"><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/26/effective-method-to-study-for-math.htm">Effective Method to Study for Math</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/">About.com Mathematics</a> on Monday, May 26th, 2014 at 08:04:59.</p><p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/26/effective-method-to-study-for-math.htm">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/26/effective-method-to-study-for-math.htm#gB3">Comment</a> | <a href="http://math.about.com/gi/pages/shareurl.htm?PG=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/26/effective-method-to-study-for-math.htm&zItl=Effective Method to Study for Math">Email this</a></p>http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/26/effective-method-to-study-for-math.htm2014-05-26T08:04:59ZFraction Worksheets and Printables

<p>Any teacher will tell you that: "They just don't get Fractions and Integers". These two concepts tend to give our younger learners grief. However, keep the learning concrete and authentic and be sure to follow up with lots of practice. Here is the index to<a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/od/fractionsrounding1/"> numerous worksheets for fractions</a> which include, common denominators, fractions and the four operations, simplifying fractions, equivalent fractions, improper fractions and much more.</p><p style="background:#f5f3ef;border:1px solid #d5d0bf;clear:both;padding:.5em;"><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/23/fraction-worksheets-and-printables.htm">Fraction Worksheets and Printables</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/">About.com Mathematics</a> on Friday, May 23rd, 2014 at 13:37:57.</p><p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/23/fraction-worksheets-and-printables.htm">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/23/fraction-worksheets-and-printables.htm#gB3">Comment</a> | <a href="http://math.about.com/gi/pages/shareurl.htm?PG=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/23/fraction-worksheets-and-printables.htm&zItl=Fraction Worksheets and Printables">Email this</a></p>http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/23/fraction-worksheets-and-printables.htm2014-05-23T13:37:57ZGeometry in Kindergarten
http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/20/geometry-in-kindergarten.htm
<p>What do kindergarten students need to learn about Geometry according to the Common Core math standards? They need to know about both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional shapes and solids, they need some understanding of what it means to decompose and compose shapes and solids, they need to know the names of a variety of polygons and how to describe them just to name a few. This week, you'll find some <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/od/CommonCoreMath/fl/Kindergarten-Common-Core-Geometry.htm">helpful hints about teaching geometry</a> to young kindergarten students.</p><p style="background:#f5f3ef;border:1px solid #d5d0bf;clear:both;padding:.5em;"><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/20/geometry-in-kindergarten.htm">Geometry in Kindergarten</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/">About.com Mathematics</a> on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014 at 11:44:06.</p><p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/20/geometry-in-kindergarten.htm">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/20/geometry-in-kindergarten.htm#gB3">Comment</a> | <a href="http://math.about.com/gi/pages/shareurl.htm?PG=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/20/geometry-in-kindergarten.htm&zItl=Geometry in Kindergarten">Email this</a></p>http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/20/geometry-in-kindergarten.htm2014-05-20T11:44:06ZParents Speak Out About Common Core
http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/18/parents-speak-out-about-common-core.htm
<p><em>"Makes my blood boil"</em> They rage over word problems, "<em>Too much to ask a first grader</em>." <em>"Incredibly frustrating for parent and student".</em> These are the comments that come from the parents of students taking Common Core math. We know that it's extremely important to have strong parent/school relationships but is the Common Core driving a wedge between this useful relationship? <br />

http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/16/counting-what-really-counts.htm
<p>Most of us take counting for granted. We learned how to count so long ago that we likely don't remember how we learned it or what our struggles were as we learned to count. Counting is much more than simply saying 1,2,3,4.... there is so much more to understand that just the rote learning of numbers. To better understand the principles behind counting and become your child's best teacher yet, take a look at the <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/od/counting/a/The-Principles-Of-Counting.htm">principles of counting.</a></p><p style="background:#f5f3ef;border:1px solid #d5d0bf;clear:both;padding:.5em;"><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/16/counting-what-really-counts.htm">Counting: What Really Counts?</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/">About.com Mathematics</a> on Friday, May 16th, 2014 at 07:13:26.</p><p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/16/counting-what-really-counts.htm">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/16/counting-what-really-counts.htm#gB3">Comment</a> | <a href="http://math.about.com/gi/pages/shareurl.htm?PG=http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/16/counting-what-really-counts.htm&zItl=Counting: What Really Counts?">Email this</a></p>http://math.about.com/b/2014/05/16/counting-what-really-counts.htm2014-05-16T07:13:26ZHappy Mother's Day

http://math.about.com/b/2014/04/30/commit-those-facts-to-memory-3.htm
<p>I wish I had a dollar for every time I was asked if kids should know their times tables by memory. The answer is YES, absolutely. Sure, calculators and plentiful and even available on phones and iPods but bottom line, it's important to know your facts. It's efficient and the research is pretty clear that those who commit the facts to memory tend to have better achievement in math.</p>

http://math.about.com/b/2014/04/26/gender-gap-or-cultural-biases.htm
<p>The gender gap between males and females is something I've observed for over 25 years in education. My own thoughts were more that attitude was the barrier to math achievement among females. However, <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/11/women-bad-math-both-genders_n_4941952.html"> this study</a> suggests that it may be cultural biases rather than biology may be the root cause of the the math gender gap.</p>
