## Teacher usesThe teacher will use the SMART Board during the first lesson to work out the example problems and the initial step-by-step procedure before the students receive the handout.
The Document Camera will be used in both the second and third lessons as a way to fill out the guided notes. As the teacher fills out the handouts, the students are expected to copy down and be active listeners. The Document Camera will be a beneficial piece of technology because it allows the students to follow what the teacher does. In many cases, when a teacher uses a whiteboard to do the work, his/her back is turned to the students and they cannot see what has been written until the teacher moves away. |
## Student UsesDuring the first lesson, the students will use the SMART Board for developing the system of equations concept. As they come up with words related to the word "solution" they will come up to the SMART Board and write down their ideas. After all the ideas are written down, a student volunteer will group them into common themes based on the class' choice. This use of the SMART Board will help the students to become interactive with the lesson, causing them to become more interested in the topic.
After they have learned all three methods, the students will be assigned a project in which they must go online and find a problem that can be solved using systems of equations. By surfing the Internet, the students will have to decide if a source is credible and how to cite the source correctly. |
## online resourcesThere are two websites that the teacher is expected to reference somewhere in the unit. It is assumed that the class is familiar with Shmoop and Wolfram Alpha by this point in the semester.
Shmoop has a lot of great examples and ways of explaining the concepts. Their quiz questions will come from Shmoop. The great thing about Shmoop is that the diction is written for high school students. They simplify the topics down to ideas that even the lower students can understand. Shmoop would also be helpful for differentiation. Wolfram Alpha will be used occasionally as for supplemental instruction. Wolfram Alpha can do everything that a calculator can do and more. Students will be allowed to use this to check their work at home, as it gives step-by-step instructions for solving problems. |
