I agree - your website if FABULOUS! Thank you
The math standards ARE THE EASIEST to read and understand of all of the content areas
I never connected fractions and division as a student :(
Amy - that wasn't uncommon. I'm so glad that particular relationship is a 5th grade standard.
Great intro video to start our thinking
What are we suppose to click on in desmos
Got it thanks
NTI may be our new reality
Kids seem to be motivated by engaging technology
Also being able to verbalize what they are seeing or learning helps us see how they are making sense of what they are thinking
It looks like It makes a nice connection from area to volume
It says "We cannot find the page you requested."
It worked for me
The color coding of the net matches the colors on the cubes you are using to build. Very cool!
It worked for me
I was able to copy and past the link
Mine worked but the first one didn't.
I love that it looks like it would fold into a 3D shape. It would work well with a cut-and-fold paper piece for more tactile learners
I once bought out all of these that were available in a 50 mile radius for a lesson!
I think it said 1 lb size
What are sugar cubes? How many cubes are in the box?
I notice both the box and cube have 90 degree angles. I wonder how many cubes can fill the box
I wonder how cubes in the box
Are the cubes packed tightly into the box?
it looked like it was about 3 wide on the short side
Good question, Cindy!
It wasn't until the box was turned did you know how much might be correct
Interesting Jim!!! without turning it, there is no way of knowing if it is 2D or 3D. Could just be a picture
Oh... I love that the box is clear!
This might be a cube
I finally found the illumination link ... it needs to have the "cubes" at the end ... mine was only coping "cub"
Are blue and red the exact same size??
I love Graham Fletcher
From a child point of view....why is one out of the box
I notice the red cube looks smaller than the blue. hmmmm
I wonder if they are the same size linked together as not linked
do we have enough to fill it? are thwere ibes we cannot see?
The perspective of the camera...
These are excellent ways to build intrinsic motivation. They experience curiosity
Discovering for yourself is always so much better
Learning should be active not passive
I love Sir Cumerfence!!!!!!!1
Circle time with 6th-7th graders! :-)
I used a few of these with my fifth graders in my previous life.
These books are on EPIC!! :)
Sir Cumference and the Knights of the Round Table is So-So good!
diameter divided by circumference = pi???
To make connections
real world context, visual
This reminds me of the three aspect of number in some ways.
connections and engaging
This builds a conceptual understanding not just formulas
Math should make sense
pi isn't just some random number we made up-- it's a relationship we can see!
Multiple ways to manipulate the numbers and look for patterns
noticing the relationships between the numbers
There are different variations
The connections that could be made with the table
pattern in numbers
Relationships and patterns
they can visualize the relationships
See that the numbers are proportional
visualizing relationships and patterns
The technology is engaging
Provide rich experiences outside of pencil/paper and textbook work
technology is engaging and allows for connections vs. disconnection
I wish I had learned geometry this way! The more connections you make the deeper their conceptual understanding.
present in multiple formats
Don't teach just bits of geometry knowledge without connections...make sure it is presented into a web of knowledge to build schema!
It's presented in an engaging way that would interest children in learning.
Start with the hands on before presenting an abstract formula.
Building geometric understanding involves actually building figures and objects! It's not just cerebral. :)
I really like bringing literature into geometry love the Sir Cumference series!!
Building conceptual understanding is the foundation that higher mathematics is built upon
Will tomorrow continue to address elementary standards?
Thanks for the virtual links!!
Bye. I have a student in 5 minutes.
Thanks so much
Thank you, Kelly!
