This semester, I will be doing my major project on a Foundations of Mathematics 30 unit. The unit I will be covering is part of the outcome FM30.7 Demonstrate understanding of the representation and analysis of data using: Polynomial functions with a degree less than 3. I love this unit and am very excited to incorporate a variety of technology that I would not have thought of before this class! I hope to gain different ways I can incorporate technology from this course.
I am excited for this opportunity because I am not great with technology. I have a difficult time with it sometimes (actually, most of the time) so this will be a good opportunity for me to make myself better with using technology.
My game plan is to start out with looking at the unit, finding the key concepts and making a list of things I would expect students to know by the end of the unit. From there, creating sections that the unit will be split into. During this time, I will also be researching different technology applications to use during the unit. Once I have the sections planned out, I will then start planning each individual lesson using different sources of multimedia. I will also try to find ways to use technology with formative and summative assessment.
Graphing lines is so much fun and I really enjoy this topic in math so I’m looking forward to this major project!
