Presentation Transcript
1. National Center for Educational Statistics • 71% cannot calculate miles per gallon on a trip • 58% cannot calculate a 10% tip on a lunch bill • 78% of adults cannot explain how to compute the interest paid on a loan

2. National Center for Educational Statistics 78% of adults cannot explain how to compute the interest paid on a loan 71% cannot calculate miles per gallon on a trip 58% cannot calculate a 10% tip for a lunch bill If you order the “Onion Soup” and “The Lancaster Special” compute the 10% tip you should leave.

3. Where is the Math? • Statisticssamplingrepresentations of data (numeric/graphic)variability • ModelsOptimizationPredicting MeasurementGeometry EstimationReasonableness Rates and ProportionsDensity Data Analysisnumeric, graphic Rate of Change

4. ComputingProcedural Fluency Strand • 1/2 x 1/3 = 1/6

5. ApplyingStrategic Competence Strand • “Charles went to the kitchen and saw that there was some pudding left in the pan. He noticed that about 1/3 of the pudding was left in the pan. He ate 1/2 of the remaining pudding. What fraction of the original pudding did he not eat?

6. ReasoningAdaptive Reasoning 1/2 plus 1/3 does not equal 2/5. Explain why this statement is true. OR… "Five out of four people have trouble with fractions.“ (Steven Wright) Explain how this quote is an example of irony.

7. EngagingProductive Disposition Strand • “What good are fractions?”
