In the
Classroom & Slide Show

This is was what I wrote in the proposal but will change to suit our
needs.
The speakers will share 6 vignettes that illuminate the knowledge
domains needed to effectively implement the Dynamic Classroom. Each
activity is presented via multimedia and will take about 58 minutes.
The 6 suggested activities are:
1 Road Sign & Bus Problem
What's the problem with word problems?
At the heart of the problem is a very simple, yet powerful idea: making
sense.
2. Fraction & Decimals Darts
How do you find a number between two numbers?
The object of the Fraction & Decimal Darts challenge is to "pop"
balloons located on a number line between 0 and 1.
3. What can spin wheels teach you
about Geometry?
Learning Mathematics Dynamically with Geometer's Sketchpad
4. The Famous Jinx Puzzle
Pick a number, Add 11, multiply by 6, subtract 3, divide by 3, Add 5,
Divide by 2, Subtract the original number. Why is this called the Jinx
puzzle? Will it always work?
We'll find out using a spreadsheet
simulation.
5. The Noon Day Project: Measuring
Circumference of the Earth
This activity which involves participants from around the world
recreating the experiment that Eratosthenes did 2200 years ago where he
used shadow measurements to measure the circumference of the earth.
6. The Great Green Globs Contest
How do you learn advanced algebra by shooting down Globs?
Change the paradigm for teaching and learning. See video clips of how
this activity transforms student’s attitude toward learning.
