Written Mathematics Discussion in a Blended Classroom

Screen Shot 2016-01-24 at 3.02.05 PMHello!

I am very excited to share what I have been doing in my Geometry classes over the last year and a half. I ought to preface the whole thing by also sharing that I have turned my Geometry and Honors Geometry classes into Harkness classes. This means that students are already expected to discuss the mathematics that they are learning and the problems that they are solving with each other.

So with that in mind, I would like to share with you a few documents and the link to the Geogebra applets that they use to elicit discussion.

Examples of written discussion:

honorsgeo.explorations1.6.1.7.1.8.group2

honorsgeo.explorations1.6.1.7.1.8.group3

Geo1.explorations1.6-8.g1

The three applets from which these discussion were based:

Here is a link to my presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1zlcpF3vqIpx-PZtbvQswy8jakVSIS663O-h9fnyGfZQ/edit?usp=sharing

I look forward to an interesting discussion tomorrow! Thanks!
