Education resources on Data Nugget website

On our Data Nugget website we have a Resources page where we collect all of the great education resources that have come to our attention over the years. We'll be sure to update it with all the suggestions you share here! 

The resources are organized by the science or math concepts addressed, and we have a list of other great educational program websites.

MathBench

These modules introduce students (and anyone else who's interested) to the mathematical underpinnings of what they learn in introductory biology courses. But unlike a textbook, the modules are not full of equations and proofs. Instead, we try to bring math to life using intuitive approaches, everyday situations, and even humor. The modules contain hundreds of interactive activities, games, and questions. They range from the relatively simple (what to do with division) to the relatively abstruse (discrete diffusion models).

Is math anxiety always bad for math learning? The role of math movitation

This is the primary lit article from the Science Daily summary Kaci posted.

Stop telling kids you’re bad at math. You are spreading math anxiety ‘like a virus.’

Nice article that ends with a call for growth mindset, rather than math anxiety.
