http://tapintoteenminds.com When factoring complex trinomials, usually we resort to decomposition or some trick to make the algorithm easier to remember. What if we actually visualized what is happening when we factor trinomials? Using algebra tiles, we can easily see how to factor 5x^2 + 7x - 6.

Using area models to multiply a binomial by a constant with distributive property. This is a contextual math problem that may be considered contrived, but really gives a visual in regards to distribution when a single variable term is involved.

Great for making math contextual, visual and interconnected.

In order to add context to finding area and perimeter, we will use a mushroom container and measure in mushrooms. Great for making math contextual, visual and interconnected.

Exploring the relationship that exists between the diagonal length and the side length of a square. Students will have to use the Pythagorean Theorem, their graphing skills and knowledge of proportions / linear relations to create an equation and come to a conclusion.

Added a NEW Task Template [PDF] for the Mowing the Lawn 3 Act Math Task.

Check it out!
In this Three-Act Math Task, Mr. Pearce mows his lawn and leaves it to his students to predict and calculate how long it should take him to finish.

Using area models to multiply a binomial by a monomial with distributive property. This is a contextual math problem that may be considered contrived, but really gives a visual in regards to distribution when two variable terms are involved.

Great for making math contextual, visual and interconnected.

More contextual problems using visuals to find area and perimeter of a rectangle. Here, we use a box of hot pepper jars.

Great for making math contextual, visual and interconnected.

The Story of Two Rectangles helps the viewer visualize the perimeter and area of rectangles by introducing variables and algebraic thinking in a scaffolded manner.

Can't wait to check this out. I just worry that the learning curve will keep me working with what I know - photoshop.
 
I'm an old school Photoshop junkie, but this new tool sounds very compelling. Better still, its affordable, so our students could actually consider buying it! Definitely going to try this out.

Today, we watched a video of someone building squares using toothpicks. Figure 1 had 4 toothpicks, figure 2 had 8 toothpicks, figure 3 had 12 toothpicks, and so on. We created a table and a graph then determined how many toothpicks larger figure numbers would have by creating an equation.
