T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology Frank Griffin Cate School, Carpinteria, CA TCM Conference Durham, NC 2007

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology Effectively using technology in the classroom is as much about involving kids actively and encouraging them to think as it is about pushing buttons or bells and whistles

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology The pedagogy: Demonstrate, Check Make connections Numeric, symbolic, graphical Visualize, see it another way Create suspense, surprise Think, predict, analyze Play games, have fun

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #10Starting class: Play guess the function by hiding the equations in Y8, Y9 or Y0

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #10

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #9Testing conjectures: Student predictions Give the kid in the front row the overhead calculator

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #8Seeing patterns and asking students to guess and check: Using the home screen, tables and the Ask/Ask setting

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #7 Projecting onto a whiteboard so you can write on the graphs; make it like a game show Using Horizontal and Vertical lines in the Draw menu

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #7 the Draw menu

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #6 Calling on your students randomly either with numbers or names entered into a program

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #6

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #5 Using the STO-> key to test hypotheses, use parameters, or solve to check equations Enter key to pause the graph typing over an equation to retrace for instant replay

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #4 Showing families of curves (multiple graphs): using a list (L1) as a coefficient: y = ax 2 + bx + c y = L1x 2 + bx + c

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #3 Preparing for class: Using graph data bases (GDB) to save functions and save time! (in the DRAW menu)

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #2 Using regular function notation Y VARS, e.g Y1(2) or Y1(x+2) to show variations and transformations

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #2

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology And now the #1 technique! Animating curves with parametrics and polar curves; replaying the action in real time (using a stopwatch) Use x=T, y=f(T) to animate any function; Using SIMUL and SEQUENTIAL modes

T 5 : Top Ten Teaching Tips with Technology #1
