im a bse(mathematics)student of college of education of msu-iligan institute of technology, philippines. i have my research proposal for this semester and my topic is all about "project based learning in teaching coordinate geometry". I have this topic because it connects to my group's unit portfolio which is about coordinate geometry, specifically, the derivation of the midpoint and the distance formulas and its use in finding vertices and length of segments of regular polygons and proving some properties of triangles and quadrilaterals which involves the use of the Cartesian coordinate system. It utilizes discovery, cooperative learning, and project-based learning strategies in its administration. The students will be able to apply the lesson in creating a blueprint of a mall as their project for this unit. In turn, they will also evaluate themselves using an ?agreed upon? rubric.
If this porfolio is fully developed, i am planning to integrate it to a real classroom probably next semester. when this happens, i would like to know if this project based learning unit plan is effective for the students in learning about coordinate geometry.
I am asking for your ideas for this research proposal, on what will i am going to do, what are the possible questions for this one.
hoping for a respone...
thanks and god bless
