  2. 2. Student Page [Teacher Page] You each have something in common with some of the most important figures in the Title history of mathematics, a name. At the beginning of the semester, you all were assigned a name of a philosopher or mathematician that made some important discoveries that Introduction shaped mathematics (and life) as we know it today. Without these historical heroes, the Task world would be a drastically different place. Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits
  3. 3. Student Page [Teacher Page] Now that the semester has progressed, it’s time to identify this person and how their Title contributions changed mathematics! It’s up to you to bring these heroes back to life and inform your classmates on not only who these people were, but how they shaped the Introduction practice of mathematics as we know it today. You will be using the Internet as your tool to Task uncover information about your assigned mathematician, and then you will present your findings to the class using the method of your choice (speech, PowerPoint presentation, or Process song). You must have one graphic organize a part of your presentation. Evaluation Conclusion Credits
  4. 4. Student Page [Teacher Page] Research Title To accomplish this task, we must first begin by doing some research. Using the websites provided, research your assigned mathematician. Since you will be presenting your findings on the history of Introduction this person answer questions such as these: Where did this person grow up and live? Task When were they born? When did they die? What level of education did they receive? Did they go to college? What notable discoveries did this person have? Process How could the time frame they lived in shape their discoveries? What practical applications do these discoveries have today? Evaluation How would the world be a different place without this person? This is just a general list of questions: you do not need to answer all these questions, but you are Conclusion encouraged to ask yourself other questions not on this list. Remember, it is up to you to bring this character to life! Here is the list of websites you are to use: http://fabpedigree.com/james/mathmen.htm#top http://www.buzzle.com/articles/famous-women-mathematicians.html http://personal.ashland.edu/~dwick/courses/history/math_bios.pdf http://www.maths.tcd.ie/pub/HistMath/People/RBallHist.html Now that you have done your research and gathered your information, choose how you can best present this to your classmates. Remember, you want to educate your peers on the history of this person. Therefore, choose the method of presentation that best suits you. Some examples could be writing a song, giving a speech, teaching a lesson as your individual, presenting a PowerPoint presentation, filming a skit, etc. When you choose a method, verify your choice with me. You can find a rubric on the Evaluation page. After this present your findings to the class! Credits

  6. 6. Student Page [Teacher Page] Congratulations! You are finished with your webquest! Not only that, but you have gained Title insight into the history of great mathematicians of the past. What’s important to note is that the mathematics that has constructed the world we live in today did not happen by Introduction itself, it has been discovered by people like you and I. So, will you be the next great Task mathematician? Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits
  7. 7. Student Page [Teacher Page] For this WebQuest, I used these websites for the research information for students: Title http://fabpedigree.com/james/mathmen.htm#top http://www.buzzle.com/articles/famous-women-mathematicians.html Introduction http://personal.ashland.edu/~dwick/courses/history/math_bios.pdf Task http://www.maths.tcd.ie/pub/HistMath/People/RBallHist.html Process I used this website for the pictures: http://fabpedigree.com/james/mathmen.htm#top Evaluation I also used The WebQuest Page for information about the WebQuest and The WebQuest Conclusion Slideshare Group to host my WebQuest.

  9. 9. [Student Page]Teacher Page Begin with something that describes the origin of the lesson. For example: This Title lesson was developed as part of the San Diego Unified School Districts Triton Project, a federally funded Technology Innovation Challenge Grant. Introduction Learners In this second paragraph of the introduction, describe briefly what the lesson is about. Remember, the audience for this document is other teachers, not students. Standards Process Resources EvaluationTeacher Script Conclusion Credits
  10. 10. [Student Page]Teacher Page Describe the grade level and course that the lesson is designed to cover. For Title example: "This lesson is anchored in seventh grade language arts and involves social studies and math to a lesser extent." If the lesson can easily be extended to Introduction additional grades and subjects, mention that briefly here as well. Learners Describe what the learners will need to know prior to beginning this lesson. Limit this Standards description to the most critical skills that could not be picked up on the fly as the lesson is given. Process Resources EvaluationTeacher Script Conclusion Credits
  11. 11. [Student Page]Teacher Page Mathematics Standards Addressed Title •Interpret expressions that represent a quantity in terms of its context. Introduction •Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships Learners between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales. Standards Much of the standards implied in this WebQuest stem from students discovering Process what their mathematician attributed to the subject area. Further, there is much inference-making and organization a part of this WebQuest that strengthens Resources students skill sets. EvaluationTeacher Script Conclusion Credits
  12. 12. [Student Page]Teacher Page You can paste in the process description given to students in the “student” Title process slide and then interleave the additional details that a teacher might need. Introduction Describe briefly how the lesson is organized. Does it involve more than one class? Learners Is it all taught in one period per day, or is it part of several periods? How many days or weeks will it take? Is it single disciplinary, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary or Standards what? Process If students are divided into groups, provide guidelines on how you might do that. If there are misconceptions or stumbling blocks that you anticipate, describe them Resources here and suggest ways to get around them. Evaluation What skills does a teacher need in order to pull this lesson off? Is it easy enough for a novice teacher? Does it require some experience with directing debates or roleTeacher Script plays, for example? Conclusion If youre designing for a one-computer classroom or for pre-readers and are creating a facilitated WebQuest in which the teacher or an aide controls the computer and guides discussion, you can link from here to the Teacher Script page which would contain a printable script for the facilitator to follow. Variations If you can think of ways to vary the way the lesson might be carried out in different situations (lab vs. in-class, for example), describe them here. Credits
  13. 13. [Student Page]Teacher Page Describe whats needed to implement this lesson. Some of the possibilities: Title •Class sets of books Introduction •E-mail accounts for all students Learners •Specific software (how many copies?) •Specific hardware (what kind? How many?) Standards •Specific reference material in the classroom or school library •Video or audio materials Process If the lesson makes extensive use of specific websites, it would be appropriate to Resources list, describe and link them here. Evaluation Describe also the human resources needed. how many teachers are needed to implement the lesson. Is one enough? Is there a role for aides or parents in theTeacher Script room? Do you need to coordinate with a teacher at another school? With a partner Conclusion in industry or a museum or other entity? Is a field trip designed in as part of the lesson? Credits
  14. 14. [Student Page]Teacher Page How will you know that this lesson was successful? Describe what student products Title or performances youll be looking at and how theyll be evaluated.

  15. 15. [Student Page]Teacher Page The WebQuest model is best suited for learners who can navigate the Web on their Title own and can read the kinds of material commonly found on the Web. We can stretch the format to reach primary-aged learners, developmental English Language Introduction Learners and special populations by creating a facilitated WebQuest, one that Learners requires an adult or older peer to drive things. Standards Use this page to create a script for that facilitator. The facilitator would print this page out and use it to guide their progress through the WebQuest. Process This page will include step by step directions to the facilitator, including: Resources •What to say at each point in the process Evaluation •What to click on •What questions and misconceptions to anticipateTeacher Script •How long to take at each point Conclusion •When to direct learners to work away from the computer To help the facilitator, you might want to include screen dumps of particular screens embedded with the directions of what to do at that point.
