    Holes and Goals for my Teaching Holes and Goals for my Teaching Presentation Transcript

    • Holes and Goals
      • Linear Algebra
      • Basic Statistics
      • Basic Probability Rules
    • Holes to be Filled
      • Essential questions:
        • How do you find the probability of simple and complex events involving dependent and independent events?
        • How do matrices relate to linear functions?
        • How has the importance of using data changed over time?
    • Goals to be Reached
      • Brent will understand...
          • That matrices can be used to solve multivariable linear systems
          • The ways one can misinterpret a set of data
          • How to design and analyze a probability experiment
    • Products
      • For Linear Algebra – I contributed (with fellow mathematicians David Yost and Katie Bartz) to an online wiki resource page
      • For Statistics – I conducted an analysis of Fantasy Football stats for Ravens QB Joe Flacco and top fantasy point QB Philip Rivers
      • For Probability – I wrote a song about probability
    • #1: Wiki Resource Site
      • http://smcmmathholes.pbworks.com
      • Purpose: online resource to be used now and in the future; can also be built upon
      • Sample page: Vectors
    • #2 Fantasy Football Stats
      • ESPN.com passing stats 2010 for Joe Flacco (Ravens) and Philip Rivers (Chargers)
      • Created charts, graph displays
      • Analyzed implications of results
      • Click here for product
    • #3 Probability Song
      • Song about basic concepts in probability
      • Guitar and lyrics
      • Products like this can be used in my future classrooms for educational entertainment; to 'change things up a bit'
    • Favorite Sources
      • Praxis Practice Book
      • Youtube user khanacademy
    • Reflections
      • It was enlightening to see how much I really do not know about math concepts learned in early grades.
      • My products aligned perfectly with helping me practice for the praxis.
      • Confidence boost
