About This Webinar

Direct Measurement Videos allow students to apply science and math concepts to real life situations. Students can decide what and how to measure to explore mathematical relationships that underlie real life situations. We’ll share videos and teaching ideas that teach students to build and evaluate mathematical models.

Results of our recent study indicate that students can learn to discover mathematical models using data they collect from our direct measurement videos. We'll demonstrate how students can study linear, quadratic, inverse-square, and sinusoidal functions using these videos. We'll also show how students can learn how to evaluate competing models by making and testing predictions.

We are math teachers who share what we've learned, cause we don't want our classes to suck the energy from students. Professional development among friends, not just colleagues. Fun! Immediately useful! Interesting!
