Rational Functions Alive

Help me give my students tools to learn. I have selected white boards, dry erase markers, and colored paper. Why colored paper? Tests on white paper stress students; tests on colored paper promote learning!

My Students

My students want to learn. They are eager to try new things that will help them understand better. We are lacking basic tools to help students better learn the material.

What they don't want is another worksheet but a fun way to interact with the lesson.

As I pose questions, they can respond on their individual white boards. They can try and try again to get it right with only me seeing their responses. It is great to seem them excited!

My Project

We are studying rational functions. Students are asked to graph and graph these equations. The white boards with the coordinate plane allow quick drawing, modifying, and displaying of their information. They don't run out of paper trying to graph!

White boards allow students to display their thoughts quickly!

Sometimes, students have that second doubt that the work is wrong so they won't try. Being able to quickly change or keeo their work gives the student the flexibility to try and the ability to show their knowledge!

These graphs will be recreated on colored paper so students can proudly display their work.
