Screencasting Project – What, Why’s and How’s

This week we are doing a screencasting project. We have been talking about why we are screencasting and how we are going to make screencasting work. Remember that our overall goal this year is to save, share and make our work engaging. Today we looked at a screencast I made with my daughter Grace and then generated a list of the what, why’s and how’s of screencasting. Below are a list of some of the things you came up with.

What is screencasting?

  • A way to capture video, pictures and our voices
  • A tutorial that shows how to do a strategy or key concept in math
  • A way to show us doing math

Why are we screencasting?

  • To share our work with our friends, kids in different schools and kids in different communities around the world
  • To help others and ourselves learn key math concepts and math strategies
  • Easy to access strategies at home or at school whenever you want especially when you forget something

How are we going to do a screencast?

  • Decide on a device that we want to use
  • Choose an app that we like, that is easy to save, share and allow us create work that is engaging
  • Decide on a key concept or strategy
  • Collaborate with a friend to make an engaging screencast
  • Share our screencast by embedding into our blogs, tweeting or linking it to our facebook page

Pencast: Math 7 Algebra Tiles

We’ve just completed our first assessment of what we know about now about algebra tiles and expressions. It is important to look at the feedback provided to you by your friends and then try using algebra tiles on a different expression. If you have forgotten some of the ideas we have been talking about in class please review the pencasts below.

Pencast: Math 6 Area and Perimeter Pencast

Today we looked at a problem in class:

Matteo bought a rectangular rug for his bedroom. The room has an area of 24 square meters. The label on the rug says 20 square meters, but the rug did not fit. How could this be?

This was an interesting problem that Nick, Marcus and I were working on together at the guided math table.
