Project Overview
See below for
The SELECT Math Project will provide professional development activities and materials to enable teachers to effectively integrate technology into mathematics teaching and learning in middle level classrooms throughout Boston. This professional development model will provide ongoing, embedded support to teachers through face-to face workshops and courses, exchanges with colleagues, and mentoring through the use of the BPS Secondary Mathematics Department and Office of Instructional Technology staff.
This project will enable participants to:
  • develop and expand the participants' knowledge of sophisticated tools designed to deepen mathematical understanding (e.g., Geometer's Sketchpad, Tabletop, Fathom, Mathlab, and applets such as those available from NCTM at increase teachers' skills in integrating these technology tools into the existing curriculum, Connected Math Project deepen content knowledge in mathematics enhance technology literacy skills within the context of the instructional process
  • Format
    The project includes face-to-face, hands-on workshops, courses, and individual implementation support. Each of the components includes the following:

    Real-life math for the real world
    With a unique combination of creativity and real-life applications, Practical Mathematics , engages students who occasionally lack skills and motivation. Comprised as a two-year sequence, Skills and Concepts and Consumer Applications prepare students for the real world by using career and consumer applications to make mathematics more interesting and meaningful. The texts can also be used independently.
    A Comprehensive Lesson Plan
    • Pre-Skills Test: Precedes each chapter so teachers can evaluate students' abilities and determine learning needs.
    • Practice Exercises: A wide variety of exercises and activities engage students and keep them interested. Examples are motivated through real-world applications.
    • Time Out (Skills and Concepts) , Extensions (Consumer Applications) Sections that offer more challenging problems related to the lesson's theme.
    • For Discussion: Interesting, real-life problems designed to spur class participation and provide additional opportunities to assess students' understanding.
    • Review and Assessment: Opportunities, both focused and cumulative, include, Mixed Reviews, Mid-Chapter Reviews

    Volume 1 Number 4 - May 10, 2002 Up Close Industry Perspective Best Practices Research Review Research Review Math in the Real World: Teaching Math in Context Teaching math in the context of real world situations is a cornerstone of math education for good reason:
    • New concepts and principles come easier if you see them in action, not just in the abstract. Math in context answers the question, "When will I use this?" and "Why is this important?" The more you make the connection between textbook math and the math in our daily lives, the more you understand math is as vital as reading and writing.
    But connecting every math concept to real world situations is easier said than done. It takes time and thought to find examples that work for the math and for your students. Here are a few ideas for incorporating math in context as you teach. Include contexts from students' lives.
    Think about the numbers in students' lives. Students collect sports data: goals attempted, points scored, yards run, rebounds, saves, fouls, runs, runs batted in, hits, walks, errors, etc. They also pay attention to money earned for part time jobs, to scores on tests, to filling up the gas tank, etc. Help them see the math around them. Include contexts from a range of fields.

    Memphis City Schools
    Content Standards
    Mathematics Standard # 1:
    Students should be able to solve theoretical and real-world problems which require various approaches to investigate, understand, and apply mathematical concepts.

    All Memphis City Schools mathematics students need to be actively and continually engaged in learning ways to represent problems, in developing a variety of problem-solving strategies, and in formulating and explaining problems, processes, and solutions. As they progress toward this standard with its mandate for integrating effective communication, appropriate work habits, and logical reasoning throughout all K-12 mathematical problem-solving experiences, students will be learning knowledge and skills in ways that develop and strengthen their conceptual understanding of mathematics and its applications.
    Specific Expectations
  • Use a variety of problem-solving strategies to represent, analyze, solve, and summarize results for theoretical and real-world problems.
  • Apply principles from the mathematics content strands of estimation, number sense/number theory, computation, algebra and functions, geometry, measurement, trigonometry, probability, and statistics in the solving of both theoretical and real-world problems.

    George Fishman Operations research is concerned with effective decision making when managing complex, large-scale systems. Operations research uses a combination of mathematical models, computer software, and common sense to analyze the constraints and relationships that determine the operation of a complex system. This knowledge is then used to control the functioning of that system so as to obtain the most desirable goals and outcomes. During the past fifty years, operations research has developed into a discipline whose methods and analyses are used throughout industry, government, and other large organizations. Students are regularly employed in such diverse organizations as airlines, telecommunications companies, health agencies, and software/consulting firms. The Department of Operations Research offers instruction in the principal areas of operations research, providing students with skills in the modeling of real-world decision problems, the use of computer software to solve these models, and the mathematical methodology by which these solutions are found. The department, jointly with the Department of Statistics, offers a Bachelor of Science program in the Mathematical Decision Sciences. For well-qualified students, this undergraduate degree can be combined with one year of graduate study to obtain a Master of Science in Operations Research degree. The interested student should contact the Mathematical Decision Sciences program ( for more information.

    Instructor Exam Copy Description This prealgebra text, based on the AMATYC Crossroads standards, motivates college math students to develop mathematical literacy and a solid foundation for future study in mathematics and other disciplines. This first book of a three-book series presents mathematical concepts and skills through relevant activities derived from real-life situations; these activities are meaningful to students because they illustrate how mathematics arises naturally from real-world situations and problems. Mathematics in Action Students are encouraged to view the material as an interrelated collection of arithmetic, geometry, and fundamental algebra concepts and skills needed for future mathematics development. Each chapter is built upon real-world activities. Within each activity, mathematical objectives are noted, exposition of concepts and skills are highlighted, and several modeling examples are included. Following each activity, there is a summary box featuring the important concepts and skills arising out of the activity.

    Solving Problems
    First, help children of any age become good problem solvers. Here are some tips: 1. Encourage questions, particularly those that have more than one possible answer, and preferably ones to which you don't know the answer yourself. ("I'm not sure why leaves have different shapeslet's collect some and try to figure out some reasons.")
    2. Ask open-ended questions and welcome innovative responses. ("What do you think these woods will look like a hundred years from now?" "What would children do if there weren't any schools and everyone stayed home and learned from a computer?")
    3. Encourage divergent approaches to everyday situations, within reason. (If your child can think of a reason for setting the table in a new and different way, why not?)
    4. Help your child to tolerate some uncertainty
