Teacher Review (Based on classroom experience)
Reviewer: Glenys, Sep 11 2011 08:27:53:950PM
Classroom use in Courses and Topics:

Math 6: Rect coordinate geometry
Duration of classroom use:
One Class
What did students learn?
That the cartesian plane has 4 quatrants and each position has it's own unique order pair.
What did students do with the resource?
While the tool was on the smart board they predicted what the order pair would be for a new position.
How hard was it for students to use?
Easy
Other classroom comments:
Students found the tool very easy to use but the concept of the intergers and the 4 quadrants was a new concept so the activity was not easy.
Appropriate for:
introduction to a concept, practice of skills and understandings, applications of a concept or technique
Other Comments:
great tool to allow students to predict how the numbers in the order pairs change.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
intergers, ordered pairs,
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
none
What extra things must be done to make it work?
none
How hard was it for you to learn?
Very Easy
Explanation:
