Creating mathematics video for classroom use
Frank Gardella (Curriculum and Teaching)
What did you accomplish over the summer?
During the summer, I was able to create very specific aspects of the video including technical aspects especially the technique for camera arrangement for attention to focus on area which contains the materials. Also, a similar project was developed during a two-week Professional Development Grant workshop in August with classroom teachers, Grades 3 to 8.Topics ranged from learning basic facts to introducing algebraic concepts and skills.
How did your thinking about your project evolve?
During the project I realized that there was more detail needed in the actual creating of the video. This is usually taken care of the discussion in a classroom. In the video, this must be made clear without interactive discussion.
