Desmos Math Journey: Representations of Linear Relations


Jump Into a Desmos Math Journey: Representations of Linear Relations

Using Desmos to Create Interactive Math Investigations Just recently, I have really been extending the effectiveness of inquiry/discovery based learning in my classroom by having students work at the whiteboards around my room.

The 4-Part Math Lesson - Unpacking an Effective Mathematics Lesson

Unpacking an Effective Mathematics Lesson When it comes to teaching mathematics, we often hear about effective strategies that could be useful during a lesson, but there is little talk about what actually constitutes a complete and effective lesson from start to finish. In the following video (or jump to the summary below), I break down the 3-part lesson into 4-parts: http://youtu.be/fh...
