    • Mathalicious - Hi Tamara - Would you please ask the teacher to email kate@mathalicious.com? Thank you.

    Are there any resources for teaching logic (inverse, converse, contrapositive, etc.)?
  •  Marr's avatar
    My Algebra students have a very hard time with Direct and Inverse Variations. Any suggestions on ways to help them remember this concept?
    • Mathalicious - If you're looking for ways to help them remember the difference between them and the associated vocab, that sort of thing isn't really in our wheelhouse.
      But, to contextualize y = kx, try Locks of Love.

    I have found that my students have a difficult time with some of the lessons because they are not in the habit of thinking this way. This spring I decided to try some lessons that were a grade level or two below where we are just to give them a 'boost' on this type of thinking and they loved it! In September I plan to start out with some easier lessons and then build in difficulty as their confidence builds. Any other suggestions?
    • Mathalicious - Your plan sounds great. Thinking about and exploring an unfamiliar problem is something that some kids aren't used to doing in math class. Developing the confidence to do so, and to lean on intuition, takes some time. Your instincts are very good!
      Some of our lessons are appropriate for contextualizing a concept when it is first introduced (as opposed to applying a concept after it's learned.) If you tell let us know what grades you teach, we might be able to suggest some appropriate lessons for that.

    • Mrs. Horsfall - Mathalicious, any suggestions on 7th grade common core introductory lessons? We don't have a lot of extra time in our pacing guide to apply/practice once we've taught but I would love to incorporate more Mathalicious lessons that introduce and contextualize topics!

    I have found this to be a very valuable website for creating student achievement certificates. I love being able to show them how proud of them I am. They love being made to feel special.

    Hi Mathalicious/Edmodo community! We are looking to chat with you rock stars who both use Mathalicious lessons with your classes, and interact with your students through Edmodo (not necessarily at the same time). If this describes you, please shoot me an email: kate@mathalicious.com.

    Mathalicious, is there any intention to add content below the fifth grade level?
    • Mathalicious - Hi Mr. Bruder! Good question. We're focused on expanding our lesson library for middle and high school. In the short term, we're planning to expand to elementary.

    I have just started using Mathalicious and have found a few of the lesson real fun (and I think some of my students have, too). I haven't had a lot of time to look through all the lessons and the keyword search for "quadratics" has only turned up the lesson "Sold!" I was wondering if there was any other lesson that even remotely uses it.

    Thanks in advance!
    • Mathalicious - Hi Mrs. Reilly! Also check out Le Pon de Javert, which is a great way to contextualize a quadratic relationship.

    Did you know a personal pan pizza is 56% crust?! Observe Pi Day with pie! Also, down with crust!
    • Mathalicious - This lesson involves investigating the circumference and area of a pizza ... we want to have a little fun and encourage students to become critical consumers (and to start seeing the world through a mathematical eye). We believe this is a very effective way to teach and reinforce mathematical concepts. Shall we agree to disagree? ;)

    • Mathalicious - Hi Mrs. Pennington! Mathalicious activities are mostly for middle and high school classes, but you'll be the first to know if we branch into early childhood!

    Any fave function activities for 8th grade inclusion class?! Thx in advance.
    • Mathalicious - To see all the lessons that address function standards on Mathalicious.com:
      1. click lessons
      2. select functions from "topics"
      3. click go
      As you mouse over each lesson icon on the site, you can read the gist of the lesson. This will let you know a little about the lesson and help you decide if you might like to teach it. I hope this information helps!

    Looking for resources to engage a group of 15 year old boys in maths, who are told that they dont need 'taught maths' in the real world... anyone help?
    • Mrs. Franklin - I second this recommendation! My kids are engaged and thinking at higher levels without realizing they are doing math.

    Does anyone know of any good stimulations for rolling two dice and another one for tossing a coin that would work for android tablets? Thanks in advance.

    Interesting to show your students and bring up discussion using the mathematical practices.
    • Dr. Levy - I loved this. The problem is my students agreed with Bud's logic.
