In what happily seems to have become an annual tradition Desmos have provided you with the means to send a math-o-gramto the mathematicians in your life!
Desmos Valentine instructions

Geeky people you could even use the Desmos API …

Valentine’s Day seems an appropriate time to express love for Desmos!
Two happy discoveries this week (thanks to Twitter):
Fractions - multiplying Rotation
Multiplying fractions and Rotation about a point. Brilliant.


Elsewhere – express your feelings for WolframAlpha!

I Love YOU

Wishing Mathematicians everywhere a happy day and if you are a UK teacher about to start half term – have a lovely week!

Make Learning Meaningful in 2015

Today i have gone through an article clearly says about meaningful learning.

In this article one line says about traditional way of giving worksheet to the students and then asking them to sit in disciplined way to solve ,which is not the only of making learning happens but also making students go around discuss/realize which some teachers never tried ( because teachers think that it will be messy) according to my knowledge.

Meaningful learning is some times messy.

I am happy about this article because i already followed those things mentioned.

Application of Probability in Multiple Choice Questions

#math
Application of probability in Multiple choice questions:
For students Probability of answering (rightly) one question is 1/4 , answering wrongly is 3/4.

If you take around 10 questions in a question paper , the max probability goes to the teacher. Only if the students are lucky or know answers correctly they will be the winner.

In general question paper setter gets max probability.

There is one way of making students to get the max probability – if we ask the question like choose the wrong answers then there will 3/4 chances of wrong answers in that way students get answers mostly right.

Game Based Learning

I introduced Game Based Learning (GBL) in my classroom.
The actual purpose is to my make students to learn math concepts in fun way.
