Outcome Connections

  • demonstration with sample outcome
  • individual or group work - create a plan on how to use a 'blogging and screencasting tool with students
  • share on blog


LUNCH

Math Walk

  • demonstrate with a grade 2 outcome P2.1, P2.2 - this could be used as a pre-assessment, a formative assessment, a summative assessment
  • teachers do a 'math walk' around the school, taking photos of patterns for a specified amount of time
  • teachers will find appropriate photos to upload to their blogs, write explanations about these photos
    • P2.1 - describe the repeating pattern, what is the core pattern?
    • Extend the pattern.
    • Choose two photos of patterns and find the similarities in the patterns of two different photos
    • P2.2 - describe the increasing pattern
    • extend the pattern
    • choose two photos of different patterns and find the similarities in the patterns
    • link the blogs to Today's Meet
  • teachers choose an outcome and create their own Math Walk for their students
Examples:
High School - Using Flickr to teach math
Grade 1 - Can you see patterns in this photo - we're making one
Grade 1 - Numbers we found
Grade 1 - Making Patterns with Actions (video)
