If you are an Algebra I or Math I teacher, please see below.
WestEd, a not-for-profit educational research agency, has been funded by the U.S. Department of Education to conduct a study during the fall 2017 semester to evaluate the Querium StepWise™ Virtual Tutor for Algebra. StepWise is an online supplemental homework and quiz program that uses artificial intelligence to help students improve their mathematics problem solving. Aligned with Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, the intelligent tutoring system provides real-time, personalized tutoring to Algebra 1 students with the goal of achieving outcomes similar to those found with 1:1 tutoring.
Participating math teachers will receive stipends up to $850 for their involvement in this 8-week study! To participate, teachers must: a) be currently teaching Algebra I, and b) have at least part-time 1:1 student access to a computer, laptop, or tablet.
Please indicate your interest in participating by Friday, May 5th:
Please also forward this information to any Algebra 1 teachers who you think might be interested in participating. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

This is a cute way to learn about unit fractions.
Which angles are equal? Why?

If you can state the value of x and can state why, then you have gone deeper into learning which is what common core is about. Don’t make it harder than that! ~Sandy
This is an algorithm but students don’t know WHY it works. That is what they NEED to know. ~Sandy
Here’s a way to get students AND adults thinking. Set up a lab to answer these math/science challenges. Maybe even do these in a staff meeting? ~Sandy
Need to get someone in your home or classroom motivated with math. Do these tricks and MAYBE share how you did it. Enjoy math! MATH IS FUN!!! ~Sandy
Found a great resource for all areas of learning. This are wonderful teaching videos. Great video quality. ~Sandy
Do you need to review Calculus? Try Socratica!
As I was cruising through youtube, I found this incredible video that maps out the beginning of mathematics through how it is applied. I would love to sit down and speak with this guy, Dominic Walliman. You will see the connections of science, technology, engineering and more. What an incredible overview. Enjoy! ~Sandy
