Mathematics

Studio M

STUDIO M emphasizes problem-solving as well as basic mathematical skills. Oskar the Clown, sponsor of the television show, “Sells” addition, subtraction and multiplication.

Measure Up

MEASURE UP, beginning math for the primary level, emphasizes basic concepts and math readiness. Each program involves problem solving and logical reasoning. The development is from thought…to number…to symbol. Manipulative materials, games, and songs are used throughout.

AMA-Zone

The focus of Ama-Zone! The Rainforest Project is a role-playing activity that allows the students to explore the many issues surrounding the Rainforest. It was designed by teachers to utilize information gathered by Western Reserve Public Media during a trip to the Peruvian Rainforest.

You At The Zoo

Are gorillas more likely to be right handed than left handed? Can ants really be farmers? Go on a trip with Thane Maynard, Director of the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, to find out! In You at the Zoo, Thane and the You at the Zoo Team lead students on explorations to find out how fast cheetahs run, what it takes to be a bird, and just what happens when you tickle a sensitive plant.

Case of the Missing Human Potential

While women make up 46% of the work force, women hold only 8% of engineering jobs, and only 9% of our country’s physicists are women. Sound surprising? This program uses research and examples to appeal to
parents, caregivers, and the community regarding what they can and need to do to get their girls involved in science and math.

Vertices

Vertices: Geometry Meets Art focuses on Ohio’s Academic Content Standards in Geometry and Visual Art for grades K-2. Components of the project include Professional Development videos for educators, including pre-assessment tips, questioning strategies, building an effective rubric and effective feedback techniques; student videos on predicting new shapes, recognizing geometric shapes, creating 3-D objects and building 3-D buildings; lesson plans and assessment tools; Careers in Math videos, and additional resources.

Quizbus

QuizBus: Dealing with Data will help students in Grades 4-8 have practice with collecting data, presenting it in an understandable fashion, analyzing the data through graphing, identifying ways data can be distorted and looking at both arithmetic and geometric probability (area models). This multimedia package contains five videos, a teacher guide and a Web site, http://WesternReservePublicMedia.org/quizbus.

Ohio Math Works

Ohio Math Works is an interactive, multimedia program for 7-9 grade students that links mathematics with careers. Video, web, and print materials bring the world of fashion, food, theme parks, sports, and meteorology into the classroom. The series correlates to the Ohio Proficiency Outcomes for 9th grade and the Ohio High School Graduation Competencies. Through hands-on projects that simulate the daily challenges in these industries, students will use mathematics in much the same way that industry professionals do to create their products.39

NASA Sci Files

NASA Sci Files is a standards-based, technology focused, close-captioned, distance learning initiative designed to integrate and enhance the teaching of math, science, geography and technology in grades 3-5. The 60-minute programs in the series use scientific inquiry, including the scientific method and science processing skills, problem-based learning, and NASA to introduce students to the excitement and exploration of real-world mathematics, science, geography an3d technology.

NASA Kids Science News Network

NASA's KSNN builds upon children's natural curiosity to introduce students in grades K-2 and 3-5 to the world of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and NASA. Each one-minute segment focuses on a different question and can be used as a springboard for classroom activities.
