Kurz, Terri L.; Garcia, Jorge – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
Since the 1950s, the understanding of how the base 10 system works has been encouraged through alternative base systems (Price 1995; Woodward 2004). If high school students are given opportunities to learn other base systems and analyze what they denote, we believe that they will better understand the structure of base 10 and its operations…

Keener-Chavis, Paula; Goodwin, Mel – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2009
The implications of Earth's ocean being little explored may not be immediately evident to individuals who are not ocean literate. For this reason, initiatives to improve ocean literacy must articulate compelling reasons for ocean exploration. A lesson plan that addresses this issue has been developed as part of the education and outreach program…
