Teaching Tool for Science/Math Teachers

For those of you teaching Math and Science, here is an “interesting” activity provided by Texas Instruments that looks at the math and science of a zombie outbreak.

This could be a fun activity that teaches students to critically think and problem solve.

And better to do it now before the zombies come for their brains.

Academic Earth – Video Sharing

Academic Earth ( could be a student’s best source. The site offers free access to video courses and academic lectures from leading colleges and universities in one educational repository. Anyone can watch the same full-length lectures for free. New videos are added every day by college professors. Lecture videos can be browsed in four different ways: subjects, universities, instructors, or playlists ( I recommend this resource for any student struggling with algebra, physics, and so on.

A coIleague came across this website in a book that he was reading.

This website allows you to paste text into the box (preferably long text) and then will calculate what reading level is required to understand it. It could be interesting for both you and your students.

What is a SharePoint site?

A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

* Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
* Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
* Share information and keep in touch with other people.

SharePoint sites are dynamic and interactive — members of the site can contribute their own ideas and content as well as comment on or contribute to other people’s.

I was introduced to the SharePoint site during the Fall 2011 semester.
