This webinar will present a variety of activities that focus on content standards in the domains of algebra and functions. Specifically, we'll look at activities that support interpreting and building linear, quadratic, and exponential functions. We'll also discuss how Fathom use supports the Standards for Mathematical Practice by providing "a statistical package" that proficient students can use "to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data" (Use appropriate tools strategically).
No prior experience with Fathom is necessary.
I was a public high school math teacher in the Bay Area for 13 years, most of them at Arroyo High School, a comprehensive high school in San Lorenzo, but also a year at Leadership High School, a charter school in San Francisco. During that time I focused on supporting all students to take and pass Algebra 1, and also taught computer programming and a Sketchpad-based course on geometry in art. Since 2004, I've been a development editor and now product manager at Key Curriculum, where I have worked on textbooks, software, technology curriculum, and professional development courses.
