Understanding Proportional Relationships with the Proximity Data Game
In the Fall as Middle School and Algebra 1 teachers look for activities to develop students’ understandings of proportional relationships, they may turn to measuring scale diagrams or using springs. One of KCP Technologies’ new online Data Games called Proximity … Continue reading
Edtech Tools are NOT Just for Students
I wanted to share a couple experiences I had in the last two weeks that have reminded me that even adults can benefit from dynamic mathematics software that we typically only associate with students learning math. My experiences relate to … Continue reading
Pass the Candy! Sweetening the Study of Probability
As part of our guest blog series, we bring you another post from Kathryn Shafer. A former middle school and high school math teacher, Kathy is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Ball State University, … Continue reading
“Figuring It Out” Is Where the Learning Happens
I often get asked the question when doing webinars, workshops, or professional development training, “is there a quick way to do that” with Sketchpad, TinkerPlots or Fathom? For example, last week we had a webinar on functions, and the question … Continue reading
CrossCurricular Teaching of Data and Probability
We here at Key really love our TinkerPlots software. And we’re always talking about the power of using it crosscurricularly—using data to enhance understanding of, say, science or social science topics, as well as using these contexts to motivate the … Continue reading
