Math-Kitecture is about using Architecture to do Math (and vice versa). Students can become architects in their mathematics classrooms. Math-Kitecture has a number of activities, including "Floor Plan your Classroom," which offer engaging ways for students to study mathematics by doing real-life architecture. Students learn estimation, measuring skills, proportion, and ratios by hand-drafting a floor plan of their classroom to scale. They then use existing classroom software to create a computer-aided design (CAD) version. All submitted student work can be displayed in the online gallery

    Mathematics Learning Activities Search Lessons and Units Database Technology is an important resource for teaching and learning mathematics. Calculators, computers, and the World Wide Web are invaluable for students and teachers in the classroom. Technology allows students to visualize and experience mathematics in heretofore impossible ways, engage in real-world (rather than contrived) problem solving, perform rapid and complex computations, and generate their own representations of their own learning. Furthermore, technology allows students to undertake projects that connect with global communities, integrate mathematics with other subjects, and fit students' individual needs and interests. Information and communications technologies provide resources for enhancing, modifying, and connecting mathematics education to real-world applications. Resources that support this learning include the Internet, graphing calculators, simulation and spreadsheet software, real-time videoconferencing, and virtual reality simulations. The Technology Principle is one of the guiding principles of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 2000). It states, in part: "mathematics instructional programs should use technology to help all students understand mathematics and should prepare them to use mathematics in an increasingly technological world" Technology facilitates the transition from traditional mathematics to real-world problems. Instruction in mathematics is shifting from topics taught in isolation to presenting realistic problems to student researchers.

    July 23, 2002:
    StudyWorks will be used as a supplement to the daily curriculum and as a reinforcement and tutorial tool. The software will be rolled out in classes that include, but are not limited to, Algebra, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics and will be made available in the library and computer labs. "By integrating StudyWorks into our schools as an interactive teaching and learning tool, we have a way to enrich the math and science learning experience for our students," said Charlyn Bruchmiller, Director of Technology at the Brady Independent School District. "At Brady ISD, we use technology to provide students with the resources that they need to get the best education possible. MathSoft is helping us to deliver on this promise." "We were drawn to StudyWorks because of the way it places problems in 'real world' settings," said Susan Ceynowa, mathematics teacher at Brady High School. "Creating a fun learning experience for our students where math and science can come alive is crucial. We expect that the StudyWorks activities will make a strong contribution toward building this type of learning environment."

    Contextual Learning Resources
    Mathematics Classroom Resources CORD's original mathematics curriculum, CORD Applied Mathematics , enabled thousands of high school students to master algebra and geometry concepts in a meaningful way, through a variety of concrete experiences and occupational contexts. Today, Applied Mathematics is still available in its 40-module series, and has been joined by four new CORD mathematics programs in the contextual arena. CORD Bridges to Algebra and Geometry: Mathematics in Context bridges the gap between abstract mathematical concepts and real-world applications. It integrates algebra and geometry while providing ongoing opportunities in critical thinking. CORD Bridges to Algebra and Geometry employs an interactive, workplace-centered approach to teaching the foundations of algebra and geometry. The program features hands-on math labs and cooperative group activities, giving students the opportunity to experience mathematical concepts. It answers the question "Why do I have to learn this?" by offering connections and applications to everyday life and emphasizing the use of math in the workplace. CORD Algebra 1: Mathematics in Context employs an interactive, workplace-centered approach to teaching algebra concepts.

    Bringing the Real World into the Classroom
    Education-business partnerships promote practical skills and creativity in mathematics and science classrooms.
    by Helen C. Mao High school teachers apply guitar-manufacturing concepts to classroom lessons. A middle school student and his classmates invent a new way of carrying books. Engineers work with elementary and middle school students to design, build, and market toys. Although these images may seem unconventional, they are growing more common as increasing numbers of businesses are becoming involved in mathematics and science education reform.
    A Call for Basic Skills
    The formation of education-business partnerships is one result of Goals 2000. These partnerships not only help cultivate real-world mathematics and science skills in the classroom, but also teach students how to apply these skills to their everyday lives.
    Learning through Invention
    One such education-business partnership is the FutureMakers Inventor/Mentor Program . Developed with the Business-Education Compact of Portland, Oregon, and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the program helps Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington middle school teachers and their students work with business partners to create inventions that solve problems in the workplace. Aligned with national and Oregon state education standards in science, mathematics, art, social studies, and language arts, FutureMakers aims to show students how mathematics and science concepts underlie product development and invention.
