Greetings Scholars. Happy you have landed here to check-in and see what resources, notes, and info I may have for you (also to fill in the student information form, etc. all listed below). These first few weeks we will be spending the majority of our time developing a deep understanding of what habits can allow any of us to be great thinkers and, specifically, mathematicians. We will, together, reflect on what is working and why. I hope to huddle our thoughts around these, but look forward to adding more as we solve problems together:
- Try some simple cases
- Find/Create a helpful diagram
- Organize systematically
- Make a table
- Spot patterns
- Use the patterns
- Find a general rule or equation
- Explain why it works
- Check regularly
I look forward to learning about and solving problems together these first few weeks. Below are a few things I have asked you to do to get started with A2 this year: (1) Complete Student Information Form (2) Sign-up for Khan Academy and add me as your coach (ID:email@example.com, my coaches code is 3ZK6YK) (3) Login in to TenMarks with your ID and (4) sign-up for Remind 101. I know, it sounds like a great deal, but all of it will help us toward our ultimate goal of learning math together this year.
(1) Student Information Form:
Video to help you with adding me as your coach!
(3) TenMarks (registration will occur after September 1)
