Tech Transformationf(t)Math = LoveReflections of a High School Math Teacher Blogdy/danAnseo!Walking in MathlandYes. The answer is yes you can study mathematics. There is apparently a rumor going around telling students that math cannot be studied. This is a lie. Run from the darkness. The issue is students need to learn how to study math. Cheat Sheet (See photo to the left)Start reviewing notes, power-points, textbook, or whatever form the material being tested was presented on and on a blank sheet of paper write out problems, equations, formulas, and helpful hints on the material you do not 100% understand. Flashcards This is a fabulous tool to use with units where there is vocabulary, properties, and formulas that will tested. YouTube VideosI have written of my love for YouTube as a teaching method I use in class so it should be not surprise that I am using it again. Bottom line...to study math you have to take time to study the math. Work with different strategies to see what works. How do you study mathematics?
Teaching Statistics: Made4Math - Function OperationsIt feels like it's been forever since I blogged! One of my New Year Resolutions was to find more balance in my life and while I'm happy to report that it is going well, it has meant a decrease in things like blogs and twitter. I've not had an extremely creative semester, so far, but here's some goodies from this past week :) Function Operations Last week, one of our lessons was on function operations... you know, (f+g), (f-g), f(g(x)), etc and honestly I thought it would go very smoothly since we had already done polynomials. Anyway, to make a long story short, we needed practice... and LOTS of it! We picked an f(x) and a g(x), then rolled the dice to tell us what to do. Inverses Foldable So the next day, our lesson was on function inverses. Let's just say that after a stressful week, I enjoyed coloring the foldable! Get the entire foldable HERE Don't Forget!!!!
