Welcome to the Foundations of Mathematics 20 Workshop! September 12, 2011

Something to think about... Should we focus on “covering” the content, or focus on providing rich learning situations that develop math literate students?

Workshop Plans  Technology Update  Chapter 2 – Properties of Angles and Triangles  Chapter 3 – Acute Triangle Trigonometry  Chapter 4 – Oblique Triangle Trigonometry  Project Discussion  Feedback/Questions

Technology Update  On-line access to Teacher Resource, Student Resource, and Interactive Whiteboard Lessons. http://www.nelson.com/wncpmath/founda tions/teacher/  Students can gain access to online student resource. See instructions in front of textbook.  Still waiting for Test Generator to arrive!

Chapter 2 – Properties of Angles and Triangles  Explore the Math 2.1 (p. 70)  Alternate Explore for 2.1 & 2.2 (handout)  Investigate the Math 2.3 (p. 86)  Investigate the Math 2.4 (p. 94)  Curriculum Connection

Alternate Explore for 2.1 & 2.2

What prior knowledge do students need to have?

How do the Ch. 2 activities connect with the curriculum outcome and indicators?

Chapter 3 – Acute Triangle Trigonometry  Curriculum Connection  Getting Started (p. 114)  Explore the Math 3.1 (p. 116)  Investigate the Math 3.3 (p. 130)  Chapter Task (p. 155)
