How I Use It
I would use this program for small groups and homework. The parabola activity promotes communication and collaboration between students. What I did not care for was the timing in the lesson plans were optimistic. Mathematics sometimes takes time itself to absorb information.
My Take
The platform is well put together and well thought out. The flow from lesson to lesson contains the same tone. That consistency will serve very well for my students. I like the interactive abilities of large portions of the program. The collaboration and communication portions of this program meets the modification level of SAMR, and it did also meet Bloom’s Taxonomy levels of analysis and evaluation. Redefinition could be achieved by coupling with other programs. That can take students to a whole new level. Overall, I would recommend this program to administrators and my peers.
