About This Webinar

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.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Using Direct Measurement Videos to Learn to Make Mathematical Models
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
