Instructional Quick Tips
Below are short instructional videos associated with your selected skill.
No Certificates can be earned upon completing these videos.
This video uses the "Conic Sections" Notebook file to help students review the four types of conice sections: circles, parabolas, ellipses and hyperbolas. I demonstrate how a teacher can use a Notebook lesson file, Desmos Calculator website and animated gifs from Geogebra for visual modeling.
In this activity, students will be exploring and identifying equivalent fractions.Students will use Google Slides to review this concept and then they will test their knowledge by looking at fraction models and determine if they are equivalent or not equivalent. Students can collaborate with their peers by engaging in real-time discussion on Google Slides!
Students will find measures of central tendency, specifically mean, median, and mode. Students will learn how to calculate these meaures through the use of a random number generator, google forms, an interactive Peardeck presentation and a self correcting google sheet.
Students will review a clip of the Chicago Bulls executing the Triangle Offense. They will pause the footage, determine what type of triangles the team is forming in that play, and program the Sphero robot (using either Scratch or Java script) to execute the triangles used in the play.
Students will evaluate expressions, both numerical and algebraic. Students will complete a Quizizz activity on this topic, either as a class or independently at the discretion of the teacher. As a closure students will create their own google slide with an expression and share with a partner for them to complete.
Students will determine if two or more shapes are congruent and similar. Students will flip, rotate, resize and move shapes on the canvas to determine congruene or similiarity.Students will then describe the steps necessary to determine congruence or similiarity in the text box on the canvas.
When teaching the Quadratic Formula to solve for x and graph parabolas (quadratic equations, we can present our Notebook file from SLS Online and give students inking tools to work out the process and graph the functions. Take a look!
Students will use the Sphero Mini to explore acute, right, and obtuse angles. Students will learn about and be able to identify the different types of angles. They will then measure the angles, program Sphero to drive over angles on a pre-made template and determine what type of angle it is. In this lesson, students will review different types of angles and have some coding fun with their Sphero Mini!
In this activity, students will engage in a Sphero Mini bowling activity with a math twist! Students will set up the bowling pins and use the Sphero to knock the pins down. Students will determine how many pins are left and they will subtract that number from the original number of pins. Additional "pins" or objects can be added on to make this activity more advanced. In addition, students can apply different math strategies such as addition, multiplication, and division to take this activity to the next level!
