Ecmp355 Project

  1. 1. Math Collaboration Website ECMP 355 Project June 16 / 2008
  2. 2. Reason for this Project <ul><li>Project Born out of Pre-Internship Challenges </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lack of Student Commitment to Assigned Work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Difficulty for one-on-one time with all students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lack of Understanding / Help and Support from Parents </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Project Concept <ul><li>The main idea behind the project was to… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Have a site for students to find extra resources, and to get help from fellow students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have a place to easily communicate with parents on a regular basis, and to give them resources to help their children </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Students <ul><li>The site will provide students with several different resources to help them learn. </li></ul><ul><li>Many of the resources include Interactive Applications for them to use online o help those who may not learn math the “traditional” way </li></ul><ul><li>Each Math class from Math 9 – C30 is broken down to their major concepts, and resoures are listed for each concept to make it easier to find. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Students <ul><li>Students will also be encouraged to post questions and concepts that they are having difficulty with, and other students will be encouraged to post answers </li></ul><ul><li>In my class students will get a percentage of marks based on their participation in this online learning community </li></ul>
  6. 6. Parents <ul><li>Communication with parents on a regular basis is key, especially in a Math class </li></ul><ul><li>For students who struggle in Math, there is a chance their parents did as well and they are getting negative input from home </li></ul><ul><li>“ I was not good at Math so I am not surprised they aren’t as well” </li></ul>
  7. 7. Parents <ul><li>Just because parents are not good at Math does not mean they can’t help their children </li></ul><ul><li>Communicating with them regularily so they know what work the students should be doing at home, and providing resources for them can help them become more comfortable…This website will do both </li></ul>
  8. 8. Parents <ul><li>This website will be updated daily to show what concepts were covered in that day’s class, and what, if any, work was assigned. </li></ul><ul><li>If parents aren’t comfortable helping with the actual math, at least they can make sure the students do the assigned work. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Parents <ul><li>Parents will also have access to all of the resources for each curriculum concept available, so if they do want to help they have somewhere to look for more info. </li></ul><ul><li>Tips of how to help your children with their math will also be provided on the site </li></ul>
  10. 10. Parents <ul><li>Finally, A place for parents to post question to the teacher will be available as well. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The caveat is given that everyone will be able to see the question so only questions that they want publicly available should be posted, private questions should come straight to the teacher. </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Questions <ul><li>Any Questions??? </li></ul>
