    1. 1. Teaching Math Online<br />With Your Host: Dr. Julia Parra<br />Featuring Awesome Online Math Teachers: <br />Tyson Rush, Sandy Johnson, Stacey Alley, & Naomi Schmidt<br />
    2. 2. Online Math Showcase<br />Let’s try and peek in on a Moodle math course <br />
    3. 3. 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.<br />
    4. 4. The Front page to the blended Geometry Moodle Course<br />
    5. 5. Algebra 1 Weeks 2&3, 4&5 assignments and math games.<br />
    6. 6. Using the InterwriteSmartBoard to introduce Coordinate Geometry using midpoint and distance<br />
    7. 7.
    8. 8. Online Math Course Showcase<br />Let’s go take a peek at another online math course, this time in Blackboard  High School Geometry<br />
    9. 9. 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.<br />

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