Reviewer: biker, Jan 10 2006 02:53:59:153PM
Classroom use in Courses and Topics:
Math 7: Geometry in the plane, Geometry in space
Duration of classroom use:
Multiple Weeks
What did students learn?
Students learned how to visualize and conceptualize 3D geometric configurations.
What did students do with the resource?
Practiced and reinforced a concept that was difficult to learn in class with only the book and worksheets.
How hard was it for students to use?
Easy
Other classroom comments:
Reluctant students warmed up to this very quickly. Overall, this is a very successful way to teach the TAKS 7.8A Texas math standard.
Appropriate for:
introduction to a concept, practice of skills and understandings, applications of a concept or technique, advanced investigations
Other Comments:
Will investigate others in this series. Even our principal was impressed.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
Basic geometry concepts that every 7th grader should know.
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
Basic computer skills.
What extra things must be done to make it work?
None.
How hard was it for you to learn?
Very Easy
Explanation:
First, I investigated the program. Then it took only a 30 second demonstration to teach every student in my class how to operate the program. Students can't wait until we do this again.
Ability to meet my goals:
Very Effective
Recommended for:
