TI Releases Spanish-Language Learning Activities
2/13/2007—Texas Instruments today released new learning activities supporting the company's "We All Use Math Every Day" (WAUMED) math education initiative. The activities are now available in Spanish.
WAUMED was developed by TI and CBS in association with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). The initiative provides free classroom activities for educators online to help students make connections between the math they learn at school and applications in life outside of school. The activities relate to the show NUMB3RS.
The new Spanish-language activities are now posted alongside the English-language activities.
"My students have been much more excited about learning math when they can use the 'We All Use Math Every Day' program in the classroom. They ask for the activities almost every day and are engaged in the discussion," said Lisa Suarez-Caraballo, math teacher at Luis Munoz Marin School in Cleveland, OH, in a prepared statement. "This initiative has made my job easier to teach the concepts teens will need to succeed in school and later in life."
According to TI, since the launch of WAUMED in 2005, some 40,000 teachers have signed up for Teacher Kits, a free package that contains program information, classroom activities, a classroom poster, and bumper sticker. Registration also includes a free weekly newsletter.
