Find yourself teaching middle/high school math in our digital world? Why not let Craig and Stefan help guide you in the right direction? This full day workshop is designed to help attendees think about best practices when mixing math and technology together. Presenters will walk through a series of different math activities/challenges (ranging from content areas – algebra, geometry, data collection). Attendees will actually complete tasks together as students would in class. Then, the presenters will help take the mystery out of how the activity was created from start to finish. Some featured tools that will be highlighted are:
- G-Suite tools – slides, forms, classroom, etc
- Desmos – online graphing calculator and investigation tool
- EquatIO – tool that helps make math digital
- Flipgrid – video platform
- And some other tools based on time
Many times, educators might find a great lesson or an idea to use in class, however it might take him/her too much time to determine how a similar task could be completed/tweaked to meet their students’ needs. This session will truly be a hands-on workshop. Focus will be geared towards Grades 5-12. We will show you how Chromebooks can in fact be used in the mathematics classrooms. Bring your laptop/chromebook, and get ready to dive into mathing with tech!
