About this website
Because teachers realize that the ultimate test of mastering new material
is how effectively that material is transmitted to their students, it is a natural reaction on their part to ask such questions
as “How can I use this material in my classroom?”
Our website is dedicated to answering that question.
In particular, our experience indicates that students, especially those who do not expect to enter a mathematics-related field
see mathematics as a series of disconnected topics, none of which have a direct bearing on their lives. The material
that you will find on this website is based on a single thread that unifies the entire mathematics curriculum and at the same
time interweaves mathematics with history, language, art and science in a way that all ages and learning styles can appreciate.
To help teachers transmit their mastery of arithmetic in ways that their students can internalize
effectively, we have developed a three-pronged approach:
- Teacher PowerPoints - a condensed, teacher-oriented version
of our comprehensive arithmetic course available on www.adjectivenounmath.com. Every topic is included the common core curriculum.
- Student PowerPoints - developed specifically for teachers to use in class with their students.
They are an adaptation of material in the corresponding teachers PowerPoints categorized by grade level (and assigned
a Common Curriculum number).
- Printable, editable handouts for teachers to use for classwork, homework, and enrichment exercises.
resources on this site are dedicated to teachers. We invite you to send ideas, comments
and suggestions. Email us at email@example.com or add an idea or comment to our guestbook.
We wish to acknowledge the support of Corning Enterprises
and in particular Director Chris Sharkey as well as Corning Community College and in particular Dr. Katherine Douglas, President.
Without them, the successful workshop held for the Corning-Painted Post region would never have occurred. Please
visit our Corning-Painted Post Workshop page to learn more about this endeavor. There is a lot more to come!
page devoted to mapping resources (PowerPoint presentations and Classroom Activiites) to new Common Core Standards is now
available. Go to the NEW Common Core Standards Resources page
