http://www.edc.org/projects/solveme_mobiles
This project has researched, designed, and developed the SolveMe Mobiles app, a digital learning environment using specific mathematical puzzles to support the transition from arithmetic to algebra for middle school students. The app is designed to support logical thinking in a social environment by allowing users not only to solve puzzles but also to build and share them as well. The project team has prototyped several additional apps that could support solving, building, and sharing mathematics puzzles.<p><a href="http://www.edc.org/projects/solveme_mobiles" target="_blank">read more</a></p>Improving SchoolsMathematicsMiddle GradesTechnologyTue, 19 Aug 2014 04:01:04 +00004958 at http://www.edc.orgPuzzling, and Learning

http://www.edc.org/newsroom/press_releases/algebra_curriculum_takes_habits_mind_approach
An EDC mathematics curriculum takes a new approach to algebra learning, connecting the concrete procedures of arithmetic to the abstract reasoning that success in algebra requires. Transition to Algebra, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and published by Heinemann, builds on a history of curriculum development at EDC centered on fostering mathematical habits of mind. It is designed to be used flexibly to support algebra in Grades 6—10.<p><a href="http://www.edc.org/newsroom/press_releases/algebra_curriculum_takes_habits_mind_approach" target="_blank">read more</a></p>CurriculumMathematicsMiddle GradesScience, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM)Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:01:31 +00009082 at http://www.edc.orgDeveloping Students' Mathematical Habits
