To all Trigonometry Students,
Greetings from Denver! Everyone here, at the Expeditionary Learning Schools National Conference, is here to talk about teaching. We’re here to talk about what works for you guys, and what does not; what gets you excited to come to school and what prepares you best for the future.
I’m writing to ask you all to pitch in to this conversation we’re having out here. You’ve been doing a little experiment by doing some of your math work online. Many of you have completed problems on Delta Math, and some of you have experimented with Wolfram Alpha. You have also used this class web site for different purposes throughout the year.
Here are my questions: Do you think Delta Math helps you? Do you think it’s a good idea for us to use it in the classroom? Do you think we should do more or less work on the web in our classes? Do you have other online activities you’ve loved or hated this year, in any class? Do you have any ideas for things we should try in the future?
Please answer these questions by commenting on this post — and thank you for your help!
We’ll be thinking of you (and telling stories from class) all weekend. See you Monday.
