MATHEMATICS OUTCOMES IN SOUTH AFRICAN SCHOOLS: What are the facts? What should be done?
"South Africa is significantly underperforming in education, particularly mathematics teaching and learning. Fundamental reforms are needed in the public sector. Business leaders need to incorporate an understanding of private education and other market experiments and schooling innovations in their overall perspective and priorities for intervention and reform.

An emerging body of literature explores mobile learning in teacher education contexts. A common theme is the facilitation of collaborative, authentic professional learning experiences, often leveraged by the immediate and spontaneous nature of learning in informal settings. This paper takes a snapshot of current developments with mobile learning in teacher education. It draws on analysis of data from a study investigating mobile learning approaches in this context, with a particular focus on preservice Maths teachers’ professional development. The study was developed as part of our institution’s activities in the national Teaching Teachers for the Future (TTF) project.

Geometry Pad for iPad on the iTunes App Store
Geometry Pad is a dynamic geometry application for iPad. With the Geometry Pad you can create fundamental geometric shapes, explore and change their properties and calculate metrics. The shapes are displayed on a scrollable and zoomable workbook with a rectangular coordinate system. The following tools are built into the application:  Move and scale. Scroll the workbook by your finger. Pinch and zoom the content of your workbook. Move and modify shapes.  Point. Plot a point on the workbook. Customize point name and color.  Line. Create a line. Customize line style, color and start/end points. Calculate line length (distance between points).  Midpoint for lines. Show/hide midpoint for lines and polygon sides. Snap to midpoints.  Parallel, perpendicular and tangent lines. The lines can be created as easily as regular lines. Just create and move the line until it automatically snaps to parallel, perpendicular or tangent.  Angle. Create an angle with up to 1 degree precision. Customize angle line style and color.  Triangle. Create a triangle of one of the predefined types: regular, right triangle, isosceles, equilateral. Customize sides style and color. Calculate triangle perimeter and area. Calculate inner angles of the triangle and length of its sides.  Triangle lines. Create altitude, bisector and median lines in a triangle. Calculate length of triangle lines. Customize lines style and color.  Quadrilateral. Create a quadrilateral of one of the predefined types: regular, square, rectangle, parallelogram, rhombus. Customize sides style and color. Calculate quadrilateral perimeter and area. Calculate inner angles of the quadrilateral and length of its sides.  Circle. Create a circle. Calculate circle perimeter and area. Easily create circles inscribed into a triangle by placing circle's center close enough to the incenter of a triangle.  Circle radius and chord. Create radius and chord lines for a circle. Customize lines style and color. Calculate the length of the lines.  Polygons and regular polygons.  Arcs and circular sectors.  Ellipses.  Text annotations. Create floating and pinned single and multiple lines text annotations. Customize text/background color and transparency.  Measurements tool. Measure shape properties in single touch. Measure intersection points (line & line, line & circle). Use multitouch to measure distance between points and angle between lines.  Transformation tools: rotation, reflection, enlargement and translation.  Manual input of coordinates, lengths and angles. Use manual input to precisely locate points, setup custom length for a line or a polygon side, and change angle value.  Builtin calculator: basic arithmetic functions, square root, sin, cos, tan. Manage multiple workbooks at the same time using Save and Load features. In addition, you can share documents through email or Dropbox. Some of the tasks you can solve with Geometry Pad:  Create geometric shapes and measure all its possible metrics like length, angle, area, perimeter, intersections, distance between points, angles between lines.  Move/resize geometric shapes and watch how its metrics are changing in real time.  Demonstrate circle theorems by creating and changing inscribed and center angles.  Demonstrate theorems about incircles and excircles locations.  Create and annotate complex geometric figures. Share them through export to image and email features.

New free online Mathematics stanford course: How to learn math
Registration opened earlier this week for a new short intervention course on Stanford University's free online platform. Designed for teachers of math (K12) or for other helpers of students, such as parents, "How to Learn Math" consists of eight 10 to 15 minutelong sessions intended to change students' relationships with math. In addition to videos of Professor of Mathematics Education Jo Boaler, research ideas, and peer and selfassessments, her course includes interviews with students, Udacity's Sebastian Thrun, Stanford Professor Carol Dweck, and others. The selfpaced course launches Monday, 15 July, and closes Friday, 27 September. Boaler, the author of books such as What's Math Got To Do With It?, also serves as editor of the research commentary section of NCTM's Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (JRME).

Don't Use Khan Academy without Watching this First  EdTech Researcher  Education Week
"In previous posts, I have summed up my position on Khan Academy as follows: Khan Academy teaches only one part of mathematics—procedures—and that isn't the most important part. Writing about mathematics, developing a disposition for mathematical thinking, demonstrating a conceptual understanding of mathematical topics are all more important than procedures. That said, procedures are still important, and Khan Academy provides one venue where students can learn them. In the end, I think every young person should have an account there. Even if only one in a thousand or ten thousand benefit, that would be a terrific outcome. "

What is Place Value. Learning About Place Value.
Place value in an extremely important concept that is taught as early as in kindergarten and as students learn about larger numbers, the concept of place value continues throughout the middle grades. Place value refers to the value of the digit based on its position. Place value is a concept that is difficult for young learners. Understanding place value fully requires many hands on experiences.
