Title of Lesson: Geoboards (Shape and Space)
Date of Lesson Submission: January, 2008Mentor and/or Team Teacher:
T.Neufeld
School: SouthwoodSubject Area(s): Math
Grade Level(s)/Course: Grades 4-6Materials/Resources Required (including ICT)
Computer Lab, projection unit, Internet connection, Mathfrog Website, Synchroneyes (optional).Lesson Objective/s
Teachers could use this to introduce the topics of 2-D shapes, as well as perimeter and area, or use it as a review/ check-up for students to demonstrate their knowledge of the skills learned in another class.
ICT Integration and Infusion Objective/s
The website allows hands-on use of an online geoboard. The Projector allows instructions to be teacher-directed, and clear to follow. The program Synchron-eyes allows students to view each others work, and allows the teacher more control over the action in the lab.
Lesson Plan Details
Activate:
-Introduce or review the names and properties of various 2d shapes (ahead of time, or while using the program)
-Introduce the topics of Perimeter and area (ahead of time, or while using the program)
Acquire:
-Begin by having students log onto the computers and open the website HYPERLINK "http://cemc2.math.uwaterloo.ca/mathfrog/" http://cemc2.math.uwaterloo.ca/mathfrog/ .
-Direct students to click on 1) Welcome 2) kids 3) Grade 5
-Have students scroll down and find the yellow star and click on the green Geoboard Instructions link.
-Then click on load the Geoboard
-Some demonstration options: (or avoid this section, and allow students to figure this out themselves)
-drag the elastic bands onto the geoboard
-creating different shapes by clicking on the elastic at any spot and connecting it to any point
-color in different shapes created
-delete (erases only most recent shape)
-clear (erases all creations on geoboard)
-calculate the perimeter and area of various shapes (manually)
-using the measures button (calculates and displays exact perimeter and area automatically)
-using the activities section on the blue bar for computer-directed activities
-using the instructions section on the blue bar for help with various geoboard questions
Apply:
-Option 1- Simplesttell the students what to create, (or display it on the screen using Word) and then show them how to do it. (for example, draw a red rhombus, or create a polygon with an area of 6 units2, or Is it possible to create a polygon with an area of 4 units2 and a perimeter of 8 units? Etc)
-Option 2- Create a worksheet with these instructions for the students (then have them check off ones completed)
-or more complicatedHave students press print screen when a task has been completed, and paste that copied image to a Word Document. Continue the next activity, and do the same. This way, if a teacher wants to use this lesson for grading, there is a printed copy of all completed activities.
NOTE: math curriculum has a Geoboard Performance Task which is a list of Polygon Characteristics that can be used for option 1 and 2 above.
-Follow up with your own worksheets on the topic, or have students print out and complete the online worksheet included on the page where you selected load the geoboard. Instead of that link, choose Perimeter and Area of Rectangles link.
-Use Syncroneyes at any time in the lesson to: -disable computers to show one thing/ directions etc. on the overhead screen
-highlight active use of any one students computer
-keep all screens in lab visible so that students can see what others are coming up with.
Conclusion:
This lesson can be as teacher directed, or student-led as one chooses.
