hello! Tania, current k-8 teacher in toronto. fun fax
I’m a Physics (IB & Ministry) and Programming teacher at Port Moody Secondary.
fun fact: tuning in from my phone in Colombia!
Hello everyone, I live in Moosonee, Ontario and teach grade 9 Math & Science
Good morning everyone, my name is Clement. I live in Vancouver, BC. I currently teach Physics 11, Science 8 & Math 8, and Pre-Calulus 11. I am working on my Master's of Mathematics for Teachers at the University of Waterloo.
Hello, this is Christian. I’m from Montreal, Quebec. I have been teaching to adults, at secondary level and at University (UQAM) and also a an online tutor. My subjects were mathematics and computer math.
In an elementary classroom if the teacher teaches all the subjects it is easier than in HS when subjects are separate. I would hope that HS teachers would teach it in the moment - math exists in our world, not just in a school. I think this would benefit the students
Sorry I can't access audio. I worked on math modelling lessons to develop a school garden.
for math modelling with 1-8, I explicitly demonstrate aspects of each of the 4 "stages". the key point for us is to work together on making assjmpwhen it is time to get to the student creation of a math model, they
making assumptions** with that info, students can create their own models in groups.
Exactly! The modelling needs to be ‘modelled’ and scaffolded
Yes, we can see.
I must apologize. I have to leave now to pick up my dad from the doctors.
Neat app! Thanks:)
do you know Tracker software? I used this for analyzing motion videos.
modeling is a tool in problem solving
I agree. Often.
why not always? we may not have a problem to solve but we could find a question
So this is desmos - also free
Geogebra is also a wonderful tool, also free
with dynamic geometry we can make a figure in which a moving object makes measures vary, like area or size of a side of a triangle. This is mathematical modelling (horizontal)
Here is one of the resources I used to develop my thinking regarding math modelling https://m3challenge.siam.org/sites/default/files/uploads/siam-guidebook-final-press.pdf
ontariomath.support was a great resource for grades 1-8 to learn about math modelling. Personal plug - I've created a tpt store that is looking at math modelling lessons (see " relentless learning" https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Relentless-Learning) . like Heather said, it needs to be modelled and scaffolded!
Stefan as well!
Yes- parts of it! Thank you! That way we can model modelling for other parts:)
Yes, definitely! introducing the steps of how to engage in the process itself - everything else is student driven! :)
