Mathematics Journals In A Time Of Flux, Andrew D. Mitchell May 2001

Mathematics Journals In A Time Of Flux, Andrew D. Mitchell

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between learning style and level of engagement in math journal writing. After students completed a learning style assessment, they composed a series of 6 journal entries. Each entry was scored "Engaged" or "Not Engaged." There is no statistically significant relationship between a student's learning style and level of engagement. Thus, using a learning style intake assessment to qualify students for a journal writing program may not be appropriate. A teacher should examine the research literature for personally relevant examples and find a colleague at his or her school to ...

2000-01 Annual Report, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

Annual Reports

This has been IMSA's work since we opened in 1986. Now, in our 15th Anniversary year, we are ready to further expand our statewide programming and to more proactively share what we have learned about what works in the field of mathematics, science and technology teaching and learning. The time is right, the needs are great, and the stakes for public education have never been higher.


Reaching For The Stars: Examples Of African American And Latino Imsa Graduates, Marti Guarin Jan 2001

Reaching For The Stars: Examples Of African American And Latino Imsa Graduates, Marti Guarin

Examples of Student Diversity

Searching for the secrets in the heart of the atom, or in the genetic code that makes each of us unique, IMSA's African-American and Hispanic alumni are extending the frontiers of science. They are achieving and contributing in many fields, engineering Illinois products, researching disease, teaching Illinois students, and improving Illinois technology.

The vignettes give an extended look at several alumni, and the snapshots give a glimpse of more. Here our underrepresented alumni tell how IMSA prepared them for academic and personal life, and gave them opportunities to develop tools for success.
