### Choreo Graph Tutorial Slideshow

1. 1. This tutorial is intended to:  Introduce all the tools in the app  Illustrate a sample activity that can be done using the app About this Tutorial
2. 2. Choreo Graph lets you play with geometry & graphs to make pictures of your cat, friend, or action figure perform some cool moves. What is Choreo Graph?
3. 3. Choreo Graph was inspired by dance and movement We developed a tool that allows students to explore the deep mathematics that is involved in choreographing the motion of things kids care about.
4. 4. Rotations, Translations & Coordinates
5. 5. In the app, you’re playing with angles, translations (sliding a part from one spot to another), and coordinate grids. The graphs are mathematical models for the way motion changes throughout your animation. Rotations, Translations & Coordinates (Believe it or not, you’re doing math)
6. 6. Sample Activity:The Symmetrical Dance Challenge
7. 7. Create a dance Express symmetry in the movements of your dancer.
8. 8. TELL THE STORY is covered later in this tutorial. To get started, tap:
9. 9. Build Your Dancer You will be prompted to take a picture. Then, choose one picture from the scroll.
10. 10. Build Your Dancer You can begin to digitally cut out the parts of your dancer that you would like to make move. Trace carefully with your finger− you can pinch out to zoom in and improve precision. If satisfied, tap the check mark, or click the X and discard what you’ve done.
11. 11. Build Your Dancer This will let you access, share, or work on it again later. Build Your Dancer Name and save your scene.
12. 12. Build Your Dancer You can now select a photo to traceyour next part. It could be the same photo or mix in a different one.
13. 13. Repeat the BUILD process by tracing and saving parts.
14. 14. Animate Your Dancer Once you have all the parts you want for your dancer, you are ready to make your dancer move on the ANIMATE stage.
15. 15. The line graph shows how the selected part changes through time. You can set the angle at moments in the animation represented by nodes in the graph. Animate Your Dancer using the Graph Controller Each part you create has a Graph Controller that controls how your dancer moves.
16. 16. Animate Your Dancer Stretch a node of the line graph up or down to set the part’s angle of rotation at that moment of the animation.
17. 17. Animate Your Dancer using Angles This will show you all the angles of rotation that you have applied to your dancer. (Angles are also displayed on the graphs above). Tap the wrench and TOGGLE on ANGLES
18. 18. Animate Your Dancer using Angles Notice at the same moment in each graph, one angle is 75° and the other is -75°. Paying close attention to these angle measurements can be helpful in creating symmetry.
19. 19. Animate Your Dancer using Translation Tap the wrench and TOGGLE on TRANSLATION. This will show the path your dancer travels. To add translations to your dance, select the part you want to move and then choose a node on its line graph. Drag the part to a new position on the stage.
20. 20. Animate Your Dancer using Translation You can set the location of your dancer for each node of the line graph.
21. 21. Animate Your Dancer using the Grid Tap the wrench and TOGGLE on GRID. The GRID will display the coordinates of each part at any given point in your animated dance sequence.
22. 22. Animate Your Dancer Helpful Hint: COPY or CLEAR all rotation valuesby holding down a highlighted line graph Copying allows you to paste those values into another line graph, resulting in the other part replicating the movement.
23. 23. Animate Your Dancer Looking at the two graphs allows you to easily manipulate the values so that they are opposites, and thereby symmetrical.
24. 24. There you have it… A Symmetrical Dance!
25. 25. Share Your Dance Choreo Graph will automatically save your project, but you can save a video to your camera roll that you can share over email or on other social platforms.
26. 26. Tell the Story
27. 27. Choreo Graph also allows students to create a multi-media reflection report about their projects in TELL THE STORY. Tap:
28. 28. Create a Reflection Report Tap “+” to create a new report or tap on a report you’ve already made to access it, edit it, or share it.
29. 29. Create a Report You are given a few template options. Blank allows you to customize your reflection.
30. 30. Create a Report In this template, notice that you can edit the title and subtitle. Then, start adding media and/or text with different layout options.
31. 31. Create a Report Here we chose to add the video of our Symmetry Dance. Tapping the “+” allows you to continue adding text and media.
32. 32. Create a Report Adding screenshots and text is a great way to reflect on what you made and the math you have used in Choreo Graph. Teachers are invited to scaffold the reflection as they see fit by offering students suggestions for what to include.
33. 33. Create a Report Once the reflection report is complete and you have effectively told the story, you have the option to share to our Teaching Hub. Visit noticing.nysci.org/resources for ways to share work.
34. 34. The possibilities for making things move and exploring math at the same time are endless.
35. 35. Additional Features and Help
36. 36. Music To enhance your animations, add some music to the mix. Back on the BUILD stage there are a few musical options to choose from.
37. 37. Props andPeople Another option on the BUILD stage is PROPS and PEOPLE. These are pre-traced pieces that can make it easier to get started with Choreo Graph.
38. 38. Help For extra help while in the app, tap the “?”. You will see highlighted help information as shown.
39. 39. ANGLES  Measuring angles  Rotation, positive and negative direction  Acute, obtuse and right angles  Complementary and supplementary angles Math Concepts that can be taught with Choreo Graph GRAPHING  Coordinates  Translation  Distance (distance formula)  Slope  Linear equations  Systems of equations  Parallel and perpendicular lines

Resources Thanks very much for checking out the tutorial.
41. 41. More Noticing Tools from NYSCI Size Wise lets you explore ratios and proportions while making funny pictures that make things seem wildly larger or smaller than they really are. Volumize lets you explore surface area and volume as you take 2D photos of things in the world and make them 3-dimensional. Fraction Mash allows you to explore fractions while creating crazy photo mashups. Playground Physics allows you to uncover and analyze the physics in what you do.
