Review based on:
introduction to a concept
It's a great tool, but I would like to see more opportunity for practice with it. It is very easy to use and the introduction is perfect for my students, but only having one segment and one angle to measure is not worth the effort to use my SMART board to display it.
What math does one need to know to use the resource?
none for the ruler; for the protractor, you have to understand what an angle is
What hardware expertise does one need to learn to use the resource?
What extra things must be done to make it work?
How hard was it for you to learn?
The directions on the ruler are great--easy to understand and I like the fact that the directions are not repeated on the protractor although I doubt I would use both the ruler and the protractor in the same lesson.
Ability to meet my goals:
Math 3: Measurement; Math 4: Measurement; Math 5: Geometry in the plane, Measurement; Math 6: Geometry in the plane
Tool: Measuring Review
