Tip for teachers: The key is to teach students how to build these models on their own. In doing so they learn the language of mathematics. It is less important for students to manipulate the predeveloped tools below (although in their play, they develop number and mathematical sense). Use these as models of what can be done in the classroom.
- Quadratic Function Model
- Exponential Growth and Decay
- Simple Pendulum Function
- Regular Polygon Function of Interior Angles
- Pythagorean Theorem (geometry)
- Pythagorean Theorem
- Calculating Pi with Perimeter of a Regular Polygon (lesson)
- Summation Squares
- Sine, Cosine, Tangent Comparison
- Transforming Sinusoidal Functions
- Transforming Functions
- Vertical Motion Model
- e Function Comparisons
- Logarithm Comparisons
- Calculating the Correlation Coefficient
- Sum of a Geometric Series
- Derivatives of e
- Calculus Introduction Demo
- Riemann Sums
- Parametric Rotation of Functions
- Visualizing Function Average
Math for Pure Enjoyment
These Google Slides documents are not organized in any particular way. They are dynamically used with students to develop number sense. See Number Talks to learn how to implement these in the classroom.
|Make oscillation patterns with salt and with math.
|Check out the interesting relationship between the period of a pendulum and its length.
|Learn how to estimate the value for pi using a circular object.
Use these animations to awaken a sense of curiosity toward mathematics.
