Applets and Video Lessons

Applets and Video Lessons

*Note: **The lessons and applets on this site work best*

__on a laptop or desktop__and with__Firefox__as a browser.This website is for you.

It is an accumulation of the resources I have developed over my career, and I hope they bring you joy and understanding :)

Under the tabs called "basics" are content areas that high school students commonly find tricky.

All those typical "problem" areas like fractions, basic multiplication facts and factoring, exponent laws, functions... If our students don't learn these, they will come back

Sometimes we need more than one way to explain things, and the "basics" are my effort to help remediate these tricky areas. It's worth it to take the time for remediation. On this site, I have included ways to remediate, and/or to make it stick the first time around :)

I've always been quite a visual learner and teacher, so almost everything has a visual, graphical, or hands-on component.

For a sample of Applets and Video designed to introduce a unit on quadratic functions, please visit this page :)

I have found that the more ways that a student can understand the same concept, the more likely s/he will be able to retrieve it for a desired purpose in another context.

I hope you enjoy the resources. Feel free to share, pin, post or tweet any of my ideas and activities - it's nice (really super-nice!;) if you cite me, but the point is to share :)
