Last year I wrote a post about how I wanted to improve my teaching of geometric constructions this year. This year, I re-read it and used it to help plan this unit better. I never provided the students with steps to make constructions! It was tempting, but I resisted the urge, and they did great! Here … Continue reading Constructions was MUCH better this year!
I tried searching high & low for a trigonometric discovery activity that matched my students needs and I couldn't find what I had in mind. I came across Tina Cardone's awesome Geogebra lesson & I created a worksheet that goes along with it. Thank you for the inspiration! Students were engaged all period and I … Continue reading Day 100: Discovering Trigonometry
It was frustrating for students to construct using geogebra, so this morning I made 2 parallel lines & a transversal & measured each angle. They got to move lines around and observe changes in angle measurements.
I think it is good that students were so frustrated about GGB, because they didn't quit and they can work on this more tomorrow.
