Summer school math_task

  1. 1. Summer School Math Program Session I A Special Task
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>The internet stores a wealth of materials & resources suitable for learning various math concepts.  It would be helpful to have some of those resources in one place for students to access when they are experiencing difficulties understanding new math concept. </li></ul><ul><li>What would future Grade 6's, Grade 7's or Grade 8's benefit from having access to and stored in one place (like an on-line go-to place for tutorials)? </li></ul><ul><li>Your job is to pair up with 3 other classmates - decide on a particular mathematical area, then search for suitable guides/practice games for your chosen math concepts.  You will also need to create at least one resource yourselves for your chosen area. </li></ul><ul><li>You need to be as creative as possible -                      learning a mathematical concept should be FUN!! </li></ul>
  3. 3. Task <ul><li>Your task is to create a page for our math wiki that includes all the components of your chosen mathematical topic. </li></ul><ul><li>https://mathmadeeasy4middleschool.wikispaces.com/  </li></ul><ul><li>You will be in groups of 4 and each group member must pick at least 1 of the components and find all the information on it, including definitions, rules, theorems (if applicable), and examples. Then based on the information that you collected on each topic you must create 5 practice problems and also an answer key to the problems created. </li></ul><ul><li>There must be a variety of resources on your wiki page for your chosen math topic and you MUST create at least one of those resources yourselves. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Process                             Algebra Example <ul><li>One group has decided that Algebra is a worrisome topic for Grade 6 students going into Grade 7, so they have decided to create a wiki page covering the following components: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Variables </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Equations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Absolute Values </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Real Numbers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rational/Irrational Numbers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Each group member was responsible for 1 of the components and searched for the definitions, rules, theorems and examples for those components.  Each group member also created one tutorial of their own to accompany a component. </li></ul><ul><li>Ms H provided them with a few websites to get started: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.onlinemathlearning.com/                               </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.webmath.com/index4.html </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.algebrahelp.com/ </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.purplemath.com/modules/index.htm </li></ul><ul><li>Based on the information collected on each topic, 10 practice problems and also an answer key to the problems was also created. (Separate Wiki Page) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Content Creation <ul><li>Prezi </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint </li></ul><ul><li>SMART notebook </li></ul><ul><li>Screen Capture Tools </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Jing (offline) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ScreenFlow (offline) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ScreenToaster (online) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>iMovie </li></ul><ul><li>Youblisher </li></ul><ul><li>PhotoPeach </li></ul><ul><li>Flixtime </li></ul><ul><li>Creaza </li></ul><ul><li>Empressr </li></ul><ul><li>Vimeo </li></ul><ul><li>Glogster </li></ul><ul><li>Quizlet </li></ul><ul><li>Scratch </li></ul><ul><li>If you haven't heard of some of these tools but would like to have a try - see Ms H. </li></ul><ul><li>If you know of some tools online that are not listed here, just let Ms H know. </li></ul><ul><li>REMEMBER! </li></ul><ul><li>Find the right tool  </li></ul><ul><li>for the job! </li></ul>Just a little list of some of the tools you could use to create your own tutorials
  6. 6. Timeline <ul><li>Investigate: (Mon, Tues, Wed) </li></ul><ul><li>Brainstorm various Math Topics, decide topic, investigate websites, collect information, resources etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Plan: (Thurs, Fri) Page content, layout, tutorials etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Create:  (Mon, Tues, Wed) </li></ul><ul><li>Build wiki page, create tutorials, practice problems </li></ul><ul><li>Peer Review: (Thurs) </li></ul><ul><li>Using Evaluation Document review another groups wiki page </li></ul><ul><li>Reflect: (Fri) </li></ul><ul><li>Use Peer Review to tweak wiki page </li></ul>
  7. 7. Evaluation This is how your work will be evaluated <ul><li>Evaluation Document </li></ul>
  8. 8. Conclusion <ul><li>As you get into higher level math courses you may need additional help that your textbook can not provide you.   </li></ul><ul><li>I hope that this special task will help you in the future by teaching you that there are other resources out there.  I also hope that you will have created a very valuable resources for your peers both locally and globally! </li></ul><ul><li>There are also other resources out there other than the internet, like your teacher, classmates, or even a tutor. So be sure to utilize these other resources!!  </li></ul>
