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.
- Exponential Growth and Decay
- Simple Pendulum Function
- Calculus Introduction Demo
- Regular Polygon Function of Interior Angles
- Summation Squares
- Pythagorean Theorem
- Calculating Pi with Perimeter of a Regular Polygon
- Transforming Sinusoidal Functions
- Transforming Functions
- Quadratic Function Model
- Sine, Cosine, Tangent Comparison
- Derivatives of e
- Calculating the Correlation Coefficient
- Sum of a Geometric Series
- Vertical Motion Model
- e Function Comparisons
- Logarithm Comparisons
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.
Use these animations to awaken a sense of curiosity toward mathematics.
