Teaching Math Online Teaching Math Online Presentation Transcript

  • Teaching Math Online
    With Your Host: Dr. Julia Parra
    Featuring Awesome Online Math Teachers:
    Tyson Rush, Sandy Johnson, Stacey Alley, & Naomi Schmidt
  • Online Math Showcase
    Let’s try and peek in on a Moodle math course 
  • Tyson Rush is a high school Math teacher and currently working on designing courses for Blackboard. Previously, has designed blended class for Geometry, Algebra and Adv. Algebra.
  • The Front page to the blended Geometry Moodle Course
  • Algebra 1 Weeks 2&3, 4&5 assignments and math games.
  • Using the InterwriteSmartBoard to introduce Coordinate Geometry using midpoint and distance
  • Online Math Course Showcase
    Let’s go take a peek at another online math course, this time in Blackboard  High School Geometry
  • Stacy Alley is employed with the Las Cruces Public Schools. She has been a Math teacher at Las Cruces High School for 11 years and an online instructor and course developer with IDEAL-NM for 2 years. Currently she is piloting an online Honors Geometry class to meet the needs of gifted middle school students for the LCPS district.

  • Online Math Course Showcase
    It’s our lucky day, we have one more online math course, this time, a university course in WebCT/Blackboard 
  • Naomi Schmidt teaches undergraduate statistics at NMSU. She has taught in a traditional setting for 9 years and online for 5 years.
    As part of her own learning process for online teaching, she earned a graduate Certificate of Online Teaching from NMSU in 2007.
    She is especially interested in simple techniques for collaborative learning in math courses such as synchronous chat.
    When she’s not teaching or grading (!), she’s usually working in the yard or walking the dog.
  • Features that work for me
    Three-tier approach to material
    Use of synchronous communication tool, chat
    Use of pdf file format for instructor feedback
  • Structure of my course in Blackboard
    Learners review the course material
    and complete the first tier of problems,
    Sample Problems. Detailed solutions are provided.
    2) Learners complete the second tier of problems, Pair Practice Problems, and discuss approaches and solutions in chat sessions. Chat transcript is
    submitted as an assignment.
    3) Learners complete the third tier of problems, the Homework Problems,and submit as an assignment.
  • My experience with chat in my online statistics course
    What is Chat?
    Text typing, synchronous discussion, recorded transcript
    Chat is an integral part of my course
    Chat fosters improved learning outcomes
    Chat increases learner engagement with the course and each other
    Chat enables learners to teach each other
    Chat is hard for me to grade
    • Learners themselves valued chat sessions!
  • What did learners think?
    ~13 out of 16 felt the chats were “helpful or very helpful in learning the material”
    “Chats were a way to compare answers with someone and let me know if I was on right or wrong track”
    “Chats allowed me to ask other students for help and get their input on how to solve a question from their perspective.”
