Today I showed the students how to set up an equation so that my script calculator will solve for a variable without the student having to do the actual mathematics. For instance in a ratio, you can put in 3/4 = 9/ and it will fill in the 12 so you don't have to do the actual math. I knew that but did not share it with the students until today. This was in Algebra I class. In Algebra II, I have been working with the students to get them to learn to use free graph calc to find the values in a polynomial using the table part of the app. Tomorrow I am going to talk about composite functions etc and then will have the students add to their Haiku Deck presentation on the section. This is my class full of seniors and I am trying to make them more independent.
Finally, I shared the teaching channel with others in the Technology PLC and we found one that showed a website for students to use because it has audio, buttons with hints. I will discuss the site tomorrow and figure out if it works on the iPad.
