All goals have been accomplished!
2a. Teachers design or adapt relevant learning experiences that incorporate digital tools and resources to promote student learning and creativity.
1) Students in my Advanced Algebra with Trigonometry classes particiapted in a linear regression project based on the article by Leonardo's study of human anatomy. The purpose of the project was to discover if the proportions of hand length vs arm length proported by Leonardo were supported by the sample of students in our classes. Data was entered into Excel spreadsheets and then transferred to the students' graphing calculators. Attached below is further information on the project.
2) The learning check capabilities of the navigator system will be utilized more often as a way to asses student learning more frequently. This will enable me to receive immediate feedback on the lesson that was just presented rather than waiting until the next class period to learn if student understanding has been achieved. By gaining immediate feedback, remediation can happen during the same class period, producing better quality homework and hopefully lesson the students' need to visit the math lab.
3c. Teachers communicate relevant information and ideas effectively to students, parents, and peers using a variety of digital-age media and formats.
This has been accomplished through my Google teacher page.
5a. Teachers participate in local and global learning communities to explore creative applications of technology to improve student learning
I attended the Teachers Teaching with Technology conference in San Antonio February 25-27. My goal for this conference was to become more adept at using the CAS calculators. I will use this knowledge to develop CAS calculator activities for my classes over the summer. I also hope to be better able to assist the other members of the math department with the use of the CAS calculators.
