Using Direct Measurement Videos to Learn to Make Mathematical Models

January 26, 2016 at 09:00:00 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
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.

Featured Presenters
Webinar hosting presenter Peter Bohacek
Physics Teacher, maker of Direct Measurement Videos
Teaching is my second (and favorite) career. I'm a physics teacher, and I work on the Direct Measurement Video Project, creating videos and curriculum freely available to teachers and students anywhere.
Webinar hosting presenter GMD Host Coordinator
Host Coordinator
I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).

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