High School Math

Visual Math makes the job of Math Educators Globally much easier than teaching traditionally. Teaching math is not just the calculation, it application is the most important part in the learning process, which is possible if its concepts are understood. Making math visual helps the learner understanding the concepts of all grade level.

How to make math visual?

Thanks and it is your pleasure to try. Let me know if it works to your satisfaction. Thanks again.

The file downloaded and played fine using my media player. You can embed the BOX into your member page here to keep it publicly available, just like the LC portfolio.

Great video. :0)  I think the pieces could be made into puzzle-like pieces that could be moved on a wbd for people that didn't use Geometer's Sketchpad. May I give it a try to make the manipulatives and see it it will work well in that environment where there is no rotation tools?

Please check if you can see the file http://www.box.com/s/eh44m0ofkn3xcoyx8j0j

Thanks for the information.

You can sign up for a free box at https://support.box.net/home. Make folders to stay organized and upload the files you want to share. There is a mb limit per file on free avvounts. I think it was 25 or 50 mb. It should be sufficient for most things you would want to make available for others to download. Once you are set up a little bit, set the folders to share for the ones you want publically accessible and get the embed code for your box that you can post here on your member page in an html block. You could add links into your Box for the YouTubes, but it may be just as easy to add another html block just for the links. :0)

Where is the BOX file sharing tool? I will step by step instruction to share a video file showing math in motion. I have posted couple you tubes on various topics. Also on the Teacher Tube.

I have played around with the Box file sharing tool. If you ever have any files to share, it seems to be a really nice way to go about it. You can upload your files and then embed the Box repository widget into the html tool on your profile here. Then others can have easy access to those files you want to share. The idea is to have something similar to the portfolio tool that LearnCentral had.

Let me know if your presentation is open to the public. There are at least three of us that volunteer in our project that would like to attend. We are all teaching algebra 1 this year. :0)

Hi Tammy,

Welcome to the Group. You helped me the first time I was presenting using the Learncental platform. It is good to know that you are teaching Algebra 1. I have visual demos for most of the high school math topics, for example slope of a line, solving absolute value simple equation, factoring of difference of two squares etc.

I am planning to give a presentation on “Conic Section” definition and some of their properties as a visual demonstration.

It sounds like you have an interesting idea going, Iftikhar. Do you have some material already worked up for teaching math visually? I am teaching algebra 1 this year and your group topic would be interesting to learn more about.
