UNO Math Camps Day 4

Today students learned how to create dynamic worksheets in Geogebra. Here is an example –yes, a kid did this! See the next post for more examples and detailed instruction. Tomorrow, they will use this knowledge to demonstrate what they learned in camp this week. In algebra camp, some students learned how to factor trinomials using algebra tiles (see above). One more day left– this week has gone by so fast!

powerpoint + promethean = :D

Happy New Year! I’m on a powerpoint kick right now, since I am so in love with my new Promethean board. I am attaching a quiz that I used powerpoint to create and presented with the ActivStudio Desktop overlay to give an Activote quiz. It was pretty awesome, and I know I can do much more with practice. I am trying to incorporate my board as more than just a high-tech whiteboard. I also save and publish our written notes as powerpoint files to the course calendar daily so students can use them for future reference. Here is an example. Nothing complicated– just some homework problems we did in class.Note the imported Geogebra screenshot on slide 13…hotness!

Stay tuned…my stats class is working on a great project that I will be posting video of ASAP!

In other news…

this was too cute for me to not post(…and what math geek doesn’t love pencils?)!

long time, no see…

It’s been a while, guys! I had my wisdom teeth pulled as most of you know, over the Thanksgiving break, so I’m finally back in the “swing” of things. Here are few pics of the last project we did in Calc. Students created a poster to describe an assigned function. Some groups used Geogebra to generate and print graph of their function. Click on the last photo to see the guidelines the students were given. Enjoy!!!
