4 tips for online math lessons

4 Important tips for online math lessons
4 tips for online math lessons Teaching math is one of the most challenging educational jobs. It’s not the same as English, or History. Why? Because it’s not that simple for a student to understand and apply the principles explained! Unlike many other education classes, learning math takes more than just few letters written on a white-board and a good memory… Today we’ll cover few important tips that’ll help you improve your teaching style, making you a more efficient math teacher.

 Make them understand the reasons behind

It’s critical to make your students understand why it’s important for them to learn a specific formula or principle. Try to find some incentive examples that would make them understand where they can apply what they learn at your class. For example, it may help them at a science, or a physics class. It can also help them protect themselves later in life from being scammed by other people. Make sure that you link whatever you teach to some other useful practice. Another good tip would be to link your teachings to real life applicable examples. Every person, young or old, will encounter probabilities. Be it in the stock market, gambling, or playing poker with friends…all of these activities require math. Here’re four examples that can help your students understand the why behind math:
  • Managing their personal finances during life;
  • Figuring out how fast you need to travel in order to reach a certain destination;
  • Deciding which products to buy by comparing them accordingly;
  • Determining how much to tip a waitress at a restaurant.
The moment they understand why it’s beneficial to them, the moment they’ll start to be more cooperative and willing to work harder.

Interesting and fun teaching

Math is already complicated, you don’t have to make it worse by sending bad vibes to your students. Instead, you need to figure out a way to make them enjoy the process. When the students love your style, they will be more willing to accept and work harder on your discipline.
  • Reward them appropriately. This takes some effort, as you have to understand the things they desire. Once they perform well, give them a reward. It can be small things. It doesn’t matter, as long as they see that you care.
  • Set examples and motivate them: Find a successful person that has been where they are and they’ve excelled at it. The power of example is great, especially among students!
  • Give a background of the person who invented a specific algorithm/formula. Show your students the extraordinary man behind, and they’ll be more likely to gain some interest.

 Teach them how to learn by visualizing

Math is easier if it’s visualised properly. The problem solving implies more factors, and taking advantage of colours and visual images makes a student comprehend and excel at solving complicated problems. As you can see in the image, the letters have different colours according to their meaning. So, the next time you find a complicated problem that your students don’t really understand, make it easier for them by using colours when representing the exercise. If you are teaching online, you want your students to get access to the best visual content possible. In order to do that, you need to plan ahead your teaching session and prepare some valuable materials that will help them picture things in their mind. A simple google search will provide you with enough images and videos that you can transmit to your students along with your teaching course.

Teaching math facts the right way

Math facts are the foundation of math learning. Without them, it’s impossible to advance with your teachings. That is why you need to teach your students the appropriate ways to memorise and use them. This is not an easy process, but these tips might help you:
  • Teach a limited number of facts at a time. If you overwhelm your students they’ll have a harder time memorising the facts.
  • Teach new facts only after they’ve fully memorised and understood the previous ones. This is so essential!
  • Encourage daily practice. This means making your students understand that little effort each day can help their memorizing process.
  • After they memorised a specific math fact, your next lessons should include problem solving with the learned math fact. Exercises complete the learning process.

Conclusion

As you gain experience in teaching, you will begin to understand students better. There are certain patterns that students exhibit when they encounter problems at this discipline. Your job is to figure out these patterns and find productive ways to help your students overcome them. It is good to see on help resources for students (for example scholaradvisor.com) the most common difficulties they face with during studying. You can see it this way: the more you work on your teaching methods, the more success you’ll have when teaching young ones understand this complicated, but wonderful discipline. Learning is not just for students, it’s for us all, and we should continue to improve ourselves if we want to improve others. Author: Colin Christensen

Online schools from students’ perspective

perspective
perspective In 2011 in Canada there were 207,096 students that participated in online education. To be better understood this figures, that means that this is more than one student out of 25. In British Columbia, the number is growing, though online courses remain limited to a supplemental role in the K-12 public system. Advocates of online learning say it is a right way to shift the school system from the 19th-century factory model to a more innovative form. Not that it will bring freshness in the educational processes, but it will eliminate the cost of textbooks while broadening access for students in more remote areas. There are few interesting questions that need to be answered if we want to analyse the incoming trend into more details: – Which student benefit most from online learning? – When and what is a good fit for certain learning styles or goals?  Here are some of the replies coming from 10 and 11 graders. A.N. was not doing well with the class the 10 planning courses he took. This was not because of the nature of the work (neither analytical nor academic), but because the vapid assignments seemed to engage all of his free time. However, taking this course made it possible for him during Grade 10 to take two electives, film and drama. Since he wants to be a filmmaker, cinematographer, and actor, he benefitted from the courses. He says: “I became close with many of the actors in those courses that I would later work with in the one-act performance the school puts on every year, which made the online work worthwhile. As well, there was one budgeting assignment involving debit cards and money transferring that proved useful after I picked up a job this summer.” Online schooling requires time management skills. It fits more to, the entrepreneurial type of student who is not challenged in a classroom, by giving him the flexibility to have a better learning experience. When asked how does he feel if there is a supervisor in the school, who will monitor the progress of online students, with peer review in the groups were discussing and studying online curriculum could take place, he liked it. This would help to move online technology from a supplemental role to an integrated role; connect online school networking to the greater school community. A.N. thought that will be a great improvement to the system. He was worried about the fact that distancing students from the social and interactive, project-based aspects of a school, may cause students to be more indifferent to school in general. He mentioned an example of an in-classroom teacher, who replaced discussing social studies content and doing group projects with watching YouTube videos throughout the class. Moderation of those tools can be good, but the curriculum has to change to accept them, and they cannot substitute for nuanced, involved teaching. N.G. is also a student playing jazz in the evenings on Commercial Drive. He has been to four different high schools since Grade 9. (That means a different school every year.) The reason for this is the fact that in Grade 8 he failed two courses – traditional schooling was quite difficult for him. Thanks to the democratic free school, he attended in Grade 11, he receives the many additional credits he needed through self-paced learning, journaling his extra-curricular work and online learning. As a result of this, he will be starting at Vancouver Community College‘s music program this fall, which brings him great pleasure. During the last two summers, he took Math 10 and Planning 10, and believes that it is helpful only for achieving extra credits. According to him: “If a student was only being educated through online schooling, they wouldn’t really be learning, for learning consists of a personal relationship with a teacher and the curriculum, and online is a bad environment for these types of connections.” When he was asked about the shift many educators wish to see the “content-based learning” of the 20th century to the interdisciplinary, integrated, “process based learning” of the XXI century, he had a lot of comments. During Grade 9 year at a private school called Island Pacific School on Bowen Island, many innovative learning methods were used. Students were using sites like Edmodo (a secure social learning network for teachers and students), Ning (a site where one creates their own social network), and MOODLE (an open source, community-based learning tools site). All these were used to create a customised classroom online where articles, videos and ideas were shared. In his class, there was a philosophy network, which N.G called “a discussion forum on steroids,” where one could create a profile, send e-mails, and have discussions on posts, all in the name of philosophy. The teacher would get four or five students to blog about their experiences, which he liked. Smart Board, an interactive whiteboard connected to a projector and a computer used for teaching is a positive experience for N.G. With this he is able to create an interactive Power Point presentation. The students can write on and change with sensitive pens and record to post online. This tool allows the students to see a repeat of information after the class is over, and interact with the material on their own time. Since these cost under a thousand dollars in Canada, he thinks that every teacher who wants one should have one. “If a shift in teaching methods is to occur, the curriculum, at a fundamental level, must change with it.” N.G. believes that the teaching revolution should not occur online, but should take place outside the classroom with experiential learning (field trips, camping trips and outdoors excursions.) He believes that “adding all the innovative technological advancements, without changing the philosophy around education, will be as redundant as putting lipstick on a pig.” U.T. is an avid hot yoga attendant, dancer and gluten-free vegan who is taking French 12 this summer. She is at Rudolf Steiner School, which offers a set curriculum of alternative education and pedagogy. She has to take French 12 this summer, in order to be able to do math and chemistry next year, for students at Waldorf must choose between the two. Online education is helping her receive the credits she needs to pursue the sciences. However, she has many gripes with it. She explains “coming from a holistic, collaborative and spiritual learning environment makes online education feel sterile and redundant.” After looking at the screen for hours, she complained that her eyes began to hurt. “I’m not used to that much screen time. I prefer to learn in different ways, where one is not stagnating in front of a computer for hours on end.” This attitude towards computers is very common at Rudolf Steiner schools, as children do not use computers until high school. Counsel parents restrict TV watching as it reduces the child’s “etheric forces.” This can be considered as an interesting approach but is very difficult to achieve it in practice considering the lifestyles of today’s kids. U.T. agrees with the Waldorf philosophy they preach that spending time outside, being creative and doing group project would be exponentially more stimulating than completing a government-required course through the Vancouver Learning Network. The VLN is the newly established network for online schooling in Vancouver. It incorporates teaching strategies and methods similar to those in a regular classroom, such as textbooks, study guides and other materials. VLN assignments are completed and delivered through various communication methods, including mail, e-mail, online classrooms, phone and fax. Many learners participate in online voice and videoconferences with their teacher and use a variety of electronic tools and learning management systems. U.T. says, “that is all fine and dandy, but it probably won’t produce results different from the classroom system.” Laurie Anderson, PhD, former Head of VLN and current Executive Director at Simon Fraser University’s Vancouver campus says: “Any course or set of learning outcomes can be taught (and learned) in various media, be it a traditional classroom, online, a hybrid combination, or through direct experience.” It is a fact that the student has more learning options than before, and should customise his or her learning experience to fit his or her needs. This relates well to the students’ opinions of online learning, which seem quite ready to take the initiative to move out of the brick and mortar classrooms and teach themselves. Anderson emphasises the constant tension existing among three central goals of education: -to educate the mind (classic academic curriculum), -to socialise (focus on career education, training consumer education, etc… courses that help students make a living); and -to help students discover their unique potential. He concludes that the career training is the current priority of public education. What is important is to prepare students for the world of work. This is addressed well by online conventional methodologies. The other two goals: academic learning and self-actualization, should also be considered and developed further. This would require new, innovative approaches to all aspects of the public compulsory education system.

JEE Main: Ensuring future

believe- in-yourself
believe- in-yourself   JEE Main reaching its culmination, it is time for the aspirants to wait for the result. Soon the result will be out and there will be many who would rejoice and simultaneously some will silently either turn their ways or start preparing for the next time. Those who took the exam know what result they are going to get. But ultimately, result is result and until it is declared, nothing can be stated with certainty. There are many who are confident that they will top the merit list. There are also some candidates who know that they will not be able to get their names in the merit list. Others are in confusion whether the result will be positive or negative. Those who are confident, they are now preparing to tread the further road in life. They are busy arranging funds and making preparations to relocate to some new and quaint places. Those who are confident of their failure must start working to mend the ways of their life. They must learn from their errors and resolve not to commit the same mistakes again. Were the questions of JEE Main quite tough? Was it easier than the previous year examinations or more difficult with the increased level of complexities? The opinions vary from person to person. High level entrance-examinations like JEE are always tough and it is the only way that the talent can be identified. Why do you think for some it was difficult? Well, the answer is that they were either less smart or lacked proper preparation. In such examinations, being intelligent alone does not suffice. Often the average candidates score well and the so called intelligent ones lag behind. Tough exams always call for rigorous practice and preparation. So those who consistently work hard, get success and those considering themselves extraordinarily over-smart, regret a lot in their life. There are also some candidates who fail even after working hard to the extent of using all their energy and strength. Why do you think it happens? Isn’t the Divinity with them? You should understand that hard work may be the key to success, but hard work alone is not always sufficient to guarantee success. Hard work is mandatory for success, but this should be guided in the right direction. You may work hard, but the things you exert your efforts on may not be the appropriate ones. You need to press the accelerator and not the brake if you wish to increase the speed of your car. So, you should work hard, but it should also be a smart work. Right thing must be done in the right time and in a right manner. The result of JEE Main will open the door to bright future for many and meanwhile it will also cause tears in many hearts. The result will also compel many to learn a tough lesson to survive and progress in life. Those aspiring to appear in JEE 2014 must not procrastinate to move towards practice and preparation. The mistakes may be made by some, but everyone has the opportunity to learn from them.

Your classroom needs to go virtual

Your classroom needs to go virtual Do you want to equip your students with the skills they need to survive? Today the virtual world is upon us and virtual skills are essential to survival, so you should consider your classroom going virtual. To provide your students with the skills they will need to navigate today’s world. Their learning experiences in the classroom should mirror what they will encounter outside the classroom in the real world. How do you enable your students to experience what’s outside the classroom from inside the class itself? If you look at all the media, or even own a computer, you must realise that your students already live and work in a virtual future. One of the most hyped virtual gadgets is the immersive helmet. Even now we talk of the ‘Internet of Things’ and the ‘Immersive World’ as part of life. This is not in a far-distant future. You can lead your students to a successful life because your classroom can be this gateway to their future. Today students have access to new learning environments that help them progress and navigate the world through a virtual world. Virtual learning environments are essential because students relate to them and use them daily to socialise, learn and experience the world around them.
  • How?
  • When?
  • Where?
  • Who?
Features of virtual environments include ease of use, low relative cost and simple interface, aiding fast learning with short learning curve.

How can this be done?

Access

Virtual worlds can be accessed through many devices. Computers of all varieties, tablets, phones – and any new device that comes along. Integration is vital in this digital world which benefits the cloud based data storage as the best in interaction for digital content.

Fast Learning

It is said that a picture is a thousand words, imagine the words of virtual modelling where it will even better clarify the picture. The comparative speed of learning takes information and processes it towards the perspective of the student. This visual information is the most natural way the brain absorbs information. Since we learn quickest through our senses, and the eye REM will feed the brain at the speed of light all visual examples is on the highest order of comprehension.

Affordability

The affordability of virtual online courses factors on interest, amount content and implied recommendations of the curriculum. None the less, its will always be available at a fraction of the cost than having a real life education centre, books, travel. Increase affordability in terms of time and resources to teach students complex ideas.

Real world environments for real learning experiences

Education needs to meet virtual reality to provide a fully interactive experience. One that neither student nor teacher can have in a normal classroom. Virtual reality provides a range of learning experiences using different environments and experiences that can involve a computer programming language, logic, art, augmented reality. Military training, safe medical training, hazard waste training, simulated emergency protocol, all will add to the interpretive gains including foreign language learning/translations.

Novel experience

It is next to impossible to lose the attention span offered in Virtual Reality. A special degree of interaction between both instructor and student would include having the instructor offers his course in a state of the arts recordable form of presentation.   The instructor or the student taking or giving such a class can perform a series of functions such as mute, group, tags. They also access Web 2.0, perform import/export/downloads, convert, and do so all within a 3d environment. They can offer simulations, develop samples, hold discussions which are all valid experiences with visualisation material. Repetition and Reinforcement We as humans can often experience words to have multiple meanings with differences in interpretation. A simple sentence for example; “I am at home”, can mean that you are home, but it might also mean you could be back to the office, or in your most cosy chair, your childhood house, or even your most favourite restaurant.   With virtual, the visual will make any statement interpreted one way. Having that repeated visual presented will reinforce an idea or concept needed. Virtual will do exactly this. Multi-Senses There are seven senses, each which make up our ways to learn and describe. Use virtual and augmented reality to enhance or single out how we wish to present or define a concept.   It is our goal to use our multi-senses to sharpen our skills when interacting with Virtual Reality. Distance learning virtual reality can provide a dream which would otherwise be inaccessible for many.

 What are the benefits?

There are many advantages of having a virtual class. Firstly the cost of travelling. Getting to a normal learning situation generally means travelling to the learning destination, whether that be a classroom, laboratory, work experience site, car for driving or other learning experience. With virtual worlds, you simply log into your computer and walk in-world directly to the learning experience that is presented straight in front of you. Secondly, one of the major issues in a learning environment is keeping all students together learning at the same pace, despite their various learning needs and speeds. Thirdly, learning virtual reality now, can set students up to safely and privately handle controlled study cases. It has been used to prepare their mind to focus and delve into with complex matters quickly and effectively. Directly benefit the flexibility and independence of a student who might suffer with phobias or have learning difficulties. Remove that feeling where exclusion from peers are common in school situations. Whereas online class puts everyone on the same level of learning and gives people a chance to interact with others and feel part of a class environment which will also give the student more confidence within themselves. Today’s education processes require strict adherence to the syllabus. Key aspects of any subject are predefined and it is the exceptions of various schools and colleges to maintain this control of what and how class material is given, tested, retained. Virtual reality can be used to monitor this control.

About TVM

The Virtual Mob Limited (TVM) http://www.thevirtualmob.com, has been an ongoing integral part, in virtual world communities since 2006 and a part of the growth in all fields of educational and business operation. As formal learning environments are normally centred on classrooms, they are restricted in terms or real world experience within a learning opportunity. With virtual world learning these environmental restrictions can be reduced or even removed. A single location such as a classroom provides a single learning environment while a virtual environment can offer a plethora of environments with just the touch of a button. It is proven that recollection is reinforced and supported by a familiar environment. This is perhaps why, for example, language learning in a classroom allows for easy recall. However, a student who learns in a classroom struggles with using it outside of that room. This is because their experience centres on the classroom. Many recall cues are missing outside, such as learning to buy fruit in a market using a new language. So, what if the students could experience that lesson actually ‘in the market’? When they came to buy fruit, their recollection would be supported by their previous experience of buying fruit virtually. Repetition is one of the best tools for comprehension, as is making mistakes (which we will come onto later). Virtual worlds can provide safe learning situations, which can be repeated until the student is competent. Education and virtual reality meet to provide a fully interactive experience that neither student nor teacher can enter into in a normal classroom. With distance learning virtual reality can provide a dream which would otherwise be inaccessible for many. As the formal learning environment is normally centred on a classroom, the many restrictions of that environment are reduced or even removed. A single location environment provides a single learning experience. It is proven that recollection is reinforced and supported by a familiar environment. This is perhaps why, for example, language learning in a classroom allows for easy recall. However, if a student who has learned to buy fruit in a classroom using their new found language skills – then tries to buy fruit in a market, they will struggle. This is because their prior experience of this exchange has been in the classroom. Many of the recall cues are missing in the marketplace. So, what if they could experience that lesson actually ‘in the market’? When they came to buy fruit, their recollection would be supported by their previous experience of buying fruit. Repetition is one of the best tools for comprehension, as is making mistakes (which we will come onto later). Virtual worlds can provide these learning situations with no repercussions. Flexibility to learn at your own pace as we all know in life some learn things quicker than others , so will be less pressure on other peers and gives great opportunity for them to interact and feel part of class environment and also help them organise areas for course documents, assignments, class notes and other information can be readily categorised. Also having this information on the Internet can provide with a method for quickly updating and revising course content and giving the student extensive attention when they mostly require it without having to deal with any classroom disturbances. Where is the added value?    The cost off the online courses are much cheaper than college, weigh up all costs of traveling and course itself the time traveling in all weathers , where online course you can study your own pace and in comfort of your own home plus for many students security of their own environment.  But student will still get the same support, as they would in college setting, if not more as the tutor will be available online so they will be able to message and get response back. What makes it different?     TVM makes the friendly environment of talking and communicating with people. All over the world people are ready and willing to sharing their knowledge with others. This act alone has gained through the course building self-confidence and motivation. Who is it for?    This is for anyone that wishes to gain more knowledge and has a really passion for learning. Who would benefit?      Everyone and anyone who wishes to learn more and make their life mean something more and hopefully help them on their way to job they will love. Simple interaction TVM, its entire backend software, and various selected hardware such as “Plantonics” headgear was designed to make interaction useable. A quick download, run the executable, login and you are in. Menus react exactly in same manner as most video games, mouse, control buttons and or a heads up display that allows a student to walk through. The interaction can be modified to suit the most elementary child all the way to the most advanced user found. One might think of interaction being simple, but it’s a tool being useful. Next generation teaching now!! In 2014, nearly 75% (2.1 billion) of all internet users in the world (2.8 billion) live in the top 20 countries. The remaining 25% (0.7 billion) is distributed among the other 178 countries, each representing less than 1% of total users. With over 300 online colleges worldwide and thousands of various courses, having virtual courses would be the future of now. Most students, already used to online course and undoubtedly computer savvy, are all used to emerging technologies.  There is already a wide audience that want to not only teach, but be involved in creating content, learn, each with their own skill level. This insatiable degree of technology surpasses the age of classroom and teacher requiring the need to be immersed in a visual array of subjects and not just looking at flat charts or empty 2d graphics. What has happened so far? TVM has been very serious about the aspects of education. Virtually they manifested a way to offer education and with enticing ways to share. TVM built and tested several classrooms, auditoriums, meeting spaces and conference rooms for a variety organizations. The classrooms designed by TVM offers a series of ways to present and teach ideas. There are chalkboards, video presentations, working computer screens, video screens, music backgrounds, the import and export of magazines and books, scripted coded languages, sharable graphics such as art and photography, sounds and 3D models. A mix of different individuals with different backgrounds and diverse native tongues can all be in the same room and interact simultaneously. TVM offers a method with which instructors can better organise teaching materials using searchable inventories. They can record and reuse what they taught in the past. They have also created boards that will display course when and where in-world. TVM has used its virtual classroom as an instructing forum for group meetings within a virtual assembly, and members of TVM have attended and made presentations in forum. Subjects include demonstrations in graphic arts, photography, 3D model presentations, slide shows, and classroom situations including question and answer sessions, tests, grading and presentations. Online courses, apparatus such as 3D hardware, virtual suits and more have been tested and developed to augment additional functions.   Disabled and struggling have been taught in effective teaching conditions proved otherwise impossible. Your classroom needs to go virtual – today! Let it flourish inside an awaiting virtual reality world, so that learning is rewarding.   Authors:

Academy One learning incentives program My son’s in his first year of high school right now and it’s actually been a really tough year for him, and for all of us. In elementary school he was such a happy student. But in Grade 7 something happened. I don’t know if there were some lessons that he didn’t understand or if it had to do with something else. All I know is that around that time, it was clear that my son wasn’t enjoying school like he had before. Continue reading “Academy One learning incentives program”

5 Ways math strengthens learning

math is real life
5 Ways math strengthens learning The recent controversy over teaching common core math has revived the discussion of math as it relates to other subjects. There is no denying the foundational role of mathematics in education. By its very nature, math begins with fixed principles and empirical data upon which fields based on quantity, structure, space, and change can be applied. It is the most elemental of school topics, and its comprehension does strengthen learning in other subjects. Let’s examine ways that proficiency in math can enhance performance in other disciplines: Continue reading “5 Ways math strengthens learning”
