Yes, I am a secondary level teacher...and yes, I DO use technology in my classroom! Technology tools which we use regularly in my classroom include: SmartBoard, airliner, TI Smart View Calculator, TI-84+ graphics calculators, and various software programs. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to share classroom ideas with educators world wide. :)
Thank u, for replying but if real life situation where orthocentre and incentre are used will really help me to answer my learners. What you have written about centroid, i along with learners tried and found out that it was centre of gravity.
Thanks I use mathematics specifically calculas and statistics in business. As a finance major I typically concentrate mostly in statistics in process management and investment management. Money is math and money interest everybody.
Thanks Rashmi!This is an interesting platform for mathematics teachers and learners.
I was not too sure what to enter for cyber house- i don't have any blog of my own , and this was a mandatory field so the URL is not going to work.
Hi Rashmi , I' m an italian mathematician working as IT consultant. Math is my passion and I like programming implementations of mathematics. I would like to share my software experiments to get feedbacks and I also woukld like to learn more math.
thanks for the welcome. I would like to know that is there any discipline for me where i can use programming along with mathematics as i am bored of enterprise programming but i do not have any experience and also i love solving technical problems to the core.
Thanks for the welcome Rashmi. I actually love math, which is pretty ironic because when I was in middle school, it was my most dreaded and hated subject! I didn't understand it and what was worse was that I KNEW I didn't understand it. I could memorize how to solve problems such as basic operations with fractions, but I didn't understand WHY it worked. In retrospect, I think someone just jumped me to the abstract too quickly. As a result, I try really hard to make sure my students understand by allowing them to make their own discoveries.
Thanks for the welcome note. I am currently teaching Intro to Algebra and College Algebra at a Community College. Over the years I have taught/tutored all ages and levels from elementary to college calculus. I very much like the level that I am currently teaching, as I think it is a very practical level of mathematics. I look forward to reading various posts and getting ideas from others. It is also interesting to read comments from those who may have struggled with math in the past. It gives me ideas for trying to teach in different ways to help students be more comfortable with math.
Yes. Math is indeed a part of everything. Even the ancient thinkers told us so through their ancient texts. Some classic ancient texts even said that all things of reality is written in equations. Some people long ago incorporated math into their geometric art, as a way of communicating this. You can see some of this on old tile work in the ancient mosques of Spain and Iraq, and even the pyramids of Egypt. And then of course the classic numbers involved in ancient Greek temples. Math is in how flowers are shaped, how waves break at the beach, how galaxies spin ...
