The ADA Project is an open multimedia mathematics resource that covers everything from basic arithmetic to calculus. On the ADA Project’s homepage, teachers or students can select a category and then choose a topic. Within each topic, they will find a set of sample problems. Each sample problem is accompanied by a link to reveal the solution, a video that explains the solution, and a link to a discussion forum. The questions and answers can also be printed. Teachers are invited to contribute to the ADA Project’s development by submitting problems, solutions, videos, and discussions. Questions are added daily for all abilities, across a range of topics.
A new interactive national report shows how states are performing based on 10 STEM benchmarks. The STEM Opportunity Index, developed by the National Math and Science Initiative, SRI International, and 100Kin10, looks at more than 100 public datasets and puts the results into an interactive map that compares how states are doing across 10 conditions, practices, and outcomes demonstrating STEM success rates.
The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) pioneered Design–Make–Play, a novel approach to learning and engagement, drawing on deeper learning research and supporting the creation of learning experiences that develop critical thinking, knowledge integration, innovation, and creativity skills.
ASM Teacher Materials Camp is a weeklong, idea-generating workshop introducing teachers to methods that will make core math and science principles more enticing and relevant to their middle school and high school students. The materials topics are motivators in any engineering, technology, or science course as students complete projects of personal worth to them.
