• 4. Two models.

• 6. Unit 1: Problem Solving and Deductive Reasoning Unit 2: Number Theory and Set Theory Unit 3: Signed Numbers, Fractions, Decimals Unit 4: Geometry Blogs Mindmaps IBL Presentations Digital Presentations Blogs Mindmaps IBL Presentations Digital Presentations Blogs Mindmaps IBL Presentations Digital Presentations Blogs Mindmaps IBL Presentations Digital Presentations
• 7. Web 2.0 Page (using Netvibes)
• 8. Learn through reflection: Blogging
• 9. Learn by organizing your thoughts: Mindmapping

• 13. How to Study for a Math Test
• 14. The Calculus Tweetwars
• 15. The Calculus Tweetwars online student evening student morning student

• 21. Lessons Learned Don’t be afraid of failure. Some projects work. Some don’t. Project check ins are important when you don’t know what you want yet. Let the students help you decide what a “good” project looks like.
