Teaching Math Concepts to ELLs Using Google Drawings

Are you looking for a unique way to engage your ELLs in math lessons? In this course, we'll explore how to provide learning opportunities for our students using Google Drawings. We'll demonstrate how students can create math problem-solving models and utilize the Drawings space to show their visual thinking skills. We'll also discuss how students can collaborate and share their Drawings with peers.

Having Students Show Work with Screencastify

Every math teacher knows the struggle to get students to show their work, and remote and hybrid learning have only made this task more difficult. Screencastify can be a solution for teachers to visually assess students' thinking while completing a math problem. In this session, we'll demonstrate how to use Screencastify to show student work.

Error Analysis in the Math Classroom Using Edpuzzle

Do you want to increase student participation in your math classroom? Are you looking for ways to get your students motivated and actually think through their answers? In this course, we'll show you how to engage students and make math fun again using the built-in questioning feature known as Edpuzzle!

Pi Day for High School

This year we're celebrating Pi Day with some great high school level content. We'll explore a variety of fun and interesting activities that relate to probability, geography, and random patterns to focus on the all-important 3.14!

PBL in the Secondary Math Classroom

Everybody loves the idea of bringing Project-Based Learning to their classroom, but not every teacher knows how. In this course, we'll help out our middle and high school math teachers, giving some tips, tricks, and ideas on how to use Project-Based Learning.

GeoGebra Tools for Math Practice

Interested in learning how GeoGebra can help increase math achievement in your class? In this course, we’ll explore the website and how it can help you introduce and provide opportunities for students to practice different math concepts including geometry, algebra, tables, and graphing.

Teaching Reflections Across a Line Using SMART Learning Suite Online

In this session we will highlight features available in SMART Learning Suite (SLS) to allow a teacher to facilitate direct instruction as well as provide students the opportunity to learn on their own. Using individual handouts and group work you will learn how to leverage SLS to provide student opportunities for independent practice on demonstrating understanding of the mathematical concept of reflection.

Math-Infused 3D Design

Ready to learn how to blend math and art ideas in 3D printing projects? Join our session as we look at how we can apply math concepts in a 3D design environment. We’ll look at the concepts of volume, area, and capacity to make lidless boxes for 3D printing. We'll also explore translations and build tessellation tiles using TinkerCad for 3D design.

Teaching Summer Reinforcement Skills: Math

Math practice doesn't have to be considered a chore! In this session, we'll show you how to integrate mathematical thinking into all types of summer fun. With these supports, you can help combat that summer slide.

Putting the A in STEAM: Proportions of the Human Face

Did you know that mathematics and technology can support the visual arts? Let us show you how to take a classic lesson on facial symmetry and proportion and use it to increase students' digital literacy. You'll learn how to help students discover their digital identity, calculate the ratios for the "perfect" face, and more!

Representing Data in Charts

The purpose of a chart is to visualize data in a way that accurately represents the story a dataset is telling. Tools like Excel, Google Sheets, and Numbers offer a wide variety of chart options and it is sometimes difficult to decide which works best for your purpose and identify which don’t work at all. Join us as we discuss what components are important in various chart types and the ways you can help students choose the appropriate chart for their dataset!

Connecting Tools in the TEKS Math Classroom

Join us as we discuss and demonstrate a variety of instructional tools to aid in achieving Essential Knowledge and Skills for Mathematics in the TEKS math classroom. We will take a look at classroom-relevant examples and share a number of resources that can assist with the process of problem solving, modeling, and mathematical reasoning.

SMART Math tools

SMART Learning Suite now includes most all of the Math features that used to be separate in previous versions of Notebook. We'll explore the Math tools options within Notebook 16 that you might find useful within your classroom. This includes tools for fractions, graphing, and basic geometry.

Valuable Digital Tools for Algebra Instruction

Algebra is a curriculum area that depends largely on visual concepts and comprehension.  Join us during this course where we discover a variety of digital tools that can assist with enhancing visualization techniques while teaching algebra to a variety of grade levels.  We will feature tools like GeoGebra, Fluid Math, Desmos Graphing Calculator, and more! 

Pi Day Lessons and Activities

Join us for a fun-filled course with a variety of Pi day activities that can be used to educate students on the importance of 3.14... while engaging them in enjoyable classroom content. Make March 14th a holiday in your math classroom with some of our lesson suggestions! 

Sphero RVR - Angle of Incline

Students studying trigonometry will apply their knowledge of solving a triangle to answer this question: What is the steepest angle of incline that the RVR can travel upwards? Students will work in pairs using a ramp and measuring tape to draw a diagram and calculate the angle, test driving the RVR in several trials.

Sphero RVR - Pentagon Paths

After studying interior and exterior angles of polygons, students will program their RVR to trace around the path of a large pentagon. This will involve speed and heading settings in the Sphero EDU blocks.
