The New AC Method for factoring trinomials

Posted on Mar 6, 2015 by Nghi Nguyen Last Activity on Mar 6, 2015

Factoring polynomials, especially trinomials, are main subject of high school math. So far, the factoring AC Method has been the most popular method to factor binomials. This method could be improved if we apply the Rule of Signs of Quadratic functions into its operational approach. The New AC Method works simpler and faster than the existing AC Method. The most important advantage is it can avoid the lengthy factoring by grouping.

Lead By Example

Posted on Feb 27, 2015 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Feb 27, 2015

When we returned from winter break on January 5th I challenged my students to step out of their comfort zone and step up the creative effort. I felt the best way to make the challenge stick was to accept it myself so on the 4th I recorded a few videos, uploaded them to a YouTube playlist, and announced on the 5th that I'd add to the playlist every school day from that point forward. Crazy, eh? Teachers, like students, need a challenge. This is day 33 of a new series of Mac Lab videos (not counting finals and the first day of semester 2) and I'm currently on a 33 day hitting streak with 92 videos in the playlist. These tutorials aren't intended to be refined or polished (and they're not). They're intended to be a daily extemporaneous exercise—though subject to rerecording when I become especially maladroit (which happens all too often). The idea harkens back to the spirit of Confessions of a Video Tutorial Junkie. But because not enough kids were embracing the challenge,... Read More

Bug Eaters (A game of basic logic)

Posted on Feb 11, 2015 by Arthur Wohlwill Last Activity on Mar 28, 2015

This is a Scratch based project for students to use basic deductive logic. In this exercise, students will try to match predators and prey based on using deduction. This game is based loosely on some games designed to teach scientific logic from this site: http://fieldlines.org/2012/03/03/teaching-the-logic-of-scientific-discovery-with-games-part-3-better-analogies/   A worksheet is also added for students to write down the process of their thinking. Even when students can do the exercise easily, articulating the logic is a second useful exercise.  A second version called "logic puzzle' adds a second exercise to the first.

My Flipped Classroom Experiment

Posted on Jan 3, 2015 by Mark Janke Last Activity on Feb 5, 2015

As part of the 2014 Adobe Generation Professional: Video course, I was asked to share a resource I made using Premiere about my flipped classroom.  This little video doesn't focus on Adobe products but utilizes them as I do a lesson for my students.   As an added bonus, it is a flipped report on flipped learning from early in 2014.  I've now done this for 2 years and the results haven't wavered.  Only one student has failed and that's because the student left all tests blank, turned in no homework, and was often truant.Class statistics: a. Students ages 15-19 b. Videos were each about 3-5 min (one concept each).  A whole lesson is about 10-15 min of instruction.  I made no changes to what I would traditionally share live in class. c.  Were there any students who did not bother to watch? A few at first. However, in our Moodle classes, I made quizzes to complete after watching (short 2-3 min) and I occasionally do examples from their homework. This is the same issue I wo... Read More
