SMaL - Matematik i skogen Här kommer spännande lektionsförslag där skogen används för matematik att läggas ut. Uppgifterna bygger på ett tema kring vilket övningar för tidigare skolår, mellan-skolår samt senare skolår att finnas. Varje uppgift har en inledande text som beskriver uppgiften i stort, ett avsnitt med tips om hur du kan arbeta praktiskt med uppgiften och vilket material som behövs. Dessutom finns det förslag på hur uppgiften sedan kan bearbetas, formaliseras och generaliseras i klassrumemt efteråt samt lite information om vilken matematik man kan tänkas hitta i uppgiften. Lycka till! Samla kottar Denna övning går ut på att ni genom att eleverna använder ett antal kottar ska träna taluppfattning. [Tidiga skolår] [Mellan-skolår] [Senare skolår] Kasta ringar Med utgångspunkt i denna enkla men roliga och spännande tävling har ni möjlighet att upptäcka matematik på en mängd olika områden. [Tidiga skolår] [Mellan-skolår] [Senare skolår] Insekter, spindlar och andra djur Säg till eleverna. [Tillbaka]

Developing iPad Applications for Visualization and Insight - Download Free Content from Carnegie Mellon University LeaderTalk Blog Student Led Conferences (SLC's) might seem to be new but they've been around for awhile, at least 18 years - that's when I first encountered them as a newbie teacher. Since that beginning, I've had the professional pleasure of working with a number of school staffs and communities in adopting and growing SLC's. In my current position, this was our 3rd year with SLC's. Our school, a newly amalgamated K - 12 facility in a rural community, has an evening conference time and a morning conference when parents and their children can come to the school for the SLC. Contrary to what many people seem to believe, SLC's are much more time intensive and require a great deal of preparation on the part of the student and the teacher. For me, as a teacher, it began with a portfolio of student work, some I selected and some the student selected. SLC's need to be discussed beginning in September. Social media provides another avenue for you to elicit feedback from the community. {*style:<i><b>
