Limited Capacity filling up

In this session, you'll explore using animation flip books to help students deepen their understanding of transformations in Math. This animation mini project allows students to create within the math classroom, while helping them to deepen their learning through application of math concepts to a real life application.

We will look at how the project creates a need-to-know, related to the mathematical concepts and how the math relates to the real world. We will explore exemplars created by my students, the process I take them through to create these exemplars, as well as the rubric I have used to provide effective feedback to my students. We'll also look at different ways to structure the project, class management techniques and explore ways to inspire students to maximize the voice and choice the project allows for. You will leave with all the plans needed to implement this mini-project with your students!

  Sessions: Math Story Projects & Immersions
  • WHAT WILL ATTENDEES GAIN? Participants will feel confident in implementing a mini-project in their class related to animation to reinforce their teaching of transformations in a creative and engaging way.
  • BEYOND "STAND & DELIVER" As a teacher coach I value the student voice, movement and the ability to work with physical items.
