Even though students already have access to all of our class documents, I wanted an arrangement of the Unit that was easily accessible, organized by lessons, and provided quick access to notes, links, and activities.
In this unit we will try a few new things.
- I planned a card sort using Padlet. Carla, from the Padlet support team, helped me think through the card sort. I'll blog about it next week after we try it out!
- I planned notes that students will complete after adding them to their Google Drive.
- We will use an applet to experiment with completing the square. It does not run on the iPads. I need to double check that it will run on student laptops.
While I created some materials, some are definitely borrowed from MTBoS folks online. The front page of the unit is a Match My Parabola set of activities by Michael Fenton. I used a few pictures from Dan Meyer's Will It Make the Hoop work in a Desmos activity. I also used a portion of Sam Shah's complete the square activity.
The website or unit, rather, is a work in progress.
