Hey
I just read an article about the Before-During-After model for math classes posted by Carol Bell in Teacher's Corner. It is a very interesting article about designing lessons using board openers and the advantages to catching student attention in the first 10 minutes of class.

Looking forward to sharing now that my technology allows me to be here. I appreciate all the information shared from the site at our meetings. I will be inviting my team teacher to join as well.
Thanks Bec

One of the activities we did in the math department meetings with Larry Wyn was to graph inequalities and absolute values. I have attached the worksheet and the book style instructions/examples. Just print off the book pages and run them 2-sided. It can then be folded in half for a nice reference for the students.

Great site – Math 247
http://www.mathcasts.org.

This site has a great deal of usable stuff. It has lessons that are taught in a much easier to follow format than compass learning. Look at the Mathcast Library. Find the factoring lessons and watch one of the casts. Also, the Pencasts for teachers takes you to Classzone interactives which has lessons, worksheets, assessments, and videos. This is the site I use with my Earth Science book.

In our meeting with Deb, we tried to pull up the algebra source given in a group presentation. Here is the address. The site has TONS of stuff from board openers to PowerPoint presentations.

I posted this in the forum section. I have the CD if you look at the site and think it can be useful to you.

Manipulatives Galore (Free)
http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/vlibrary.html

If you liked the algebra tiles manipulative from A4A, the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives will really please you. There are more than 100 applets for
Number & Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, and Data Analysis & Probability on the site and on the CD. They cover grades Pre-K – 2, 3 – 5, 6 – 8, and 9 – 12. You can download these free or order them all on one CD. I think I paid a little over \$50.00 for the CD.

From the MATTI site:

"Q: How extensive is the library of lesson plans or applets? Do they align with various state math standards? What grade levels?"

"A: The NLVM currently consists of more than 100 applets and accompanying suggested activities and ideas for teachers. Work is ongoing to develop new applets and lessons. NLVM resources are indexed according to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) content (PSSM) K-12 grade bands and content strands. Because most of the states have used the NCTM standards as a model from which to build their standards, finding resources in our library for particular state standards is straightforward."

"The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives CD is its premiere product. MATTI Math will be distributing products that add to the NLVM’s functionality, as well as future additions to the NLVM’s activities."

Hi all. I was thinking (oh no) that we could get together a resource notebook for the beginning learner. Since we get so many students that have serious deficits in their math skills, we are always creating lessons that target earlier abilities and lead into algebra. This would be a great resource to share with other teachers on the forum page. After we get a group of them together, I will post them. I will talk to Larry Wyn as he has already created some very cool lessons.
What do you think?

I am still not able to complete session one. It won't allow me to do the scavengar hunt because it says I have not done enough of the other activities...I did all of them 3xs now. Anyway, I am just waiting for feedback from Jodi to find out what other sessions I missed. Thanks Sandy for the fraction resources! I still have a couple of boys struggling with that.
