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: The first instruction stated to drag the dot, that was all the direction needed. |

Ability to meet my goals: Effective |

Recommended for: Math 6: Integers, Rect coordinate geometry |
