For Leibniz, binary numbers represented a confluence of several ideas, including order, harmony, a candidate for his universal language (lingua generalis), an analogy of creation with 0 denoting nothing and 1 denoting God, and an interpretation of the ancient Chinese text of divination the Yijing (I-Ching or Book of Changes) in terms of binary numeration [ Sw ]. The journal is funded by the Educational Advancement Foundation, which has a strong commitment to the Moore method of teaching math in which students essentially prove all the key theorems in a course from first principles.

Cognitive strategy instruction in mathematics for students with learning disabilities. Blocks, cubes, legos, play money (or real money), and dice can all be invaluable tools for helping the visual learner to �see� how all the math facts work together. Repeating, or revisiting tasks, allows students to engage with tasks at a deeper level. If you've taken courses or received a degree from another college or university, you may be able to clear some of these requirements through transfer credit.

When early elementary math teachers ask students to explain their problem-solving strategies and then tailor instruction to address specific gaps in their understanding, students learn significantly more than those taught using a more traditional approach. What Is Cooperative Learning, and What Does It Do? Because this is the perceived alternative to one-size-fits-all teaching, instruction in mathematics is often not differentiated. The Slide Rule, which had been invented in the 1600's seems to have made its way slowly into the educational scene if the US Naval academy was typical; "In 1929 the slide rule became a formal part of the mathematics program and served as the midshipmen's primary calculator until 1976.� [From �A Brief History of the Department of Mathematics� by Professor T.

Mental Modeling (Culyer, 1987) and a variation of it, the “I wonder. . .” model (Bentley, Ebert, & Ebert, 2000), are techniques specifically intended to enhance students’ ability to direct their own learning by modeling the use of cognitive processes in the solving of some problem. The module describes different levels of data integration from having students learn by watching an instructor work with data to having students manipulate and analyze data on their own.
