The Ile Ilijevski have-a-chat video series
1. Remote teaching - bringing parents on-side
Using GeoGebra and remote learning to bring parents onside with mathematics.
00:20 Ile’s strategy to use GeoGebra-based units of work to get the parents onside through understanding the approach! (This is a spinoff from remote learning) It is so important to educate the parents. The remote learning opportunity has helped to get parents on board!
3:00 Ile’s reflections re making headway with GeoGebra - student interactions … parents interactions. Students who were turned off b4 now can do it!!
2. Ratio and fractions files demonstrations
Using GeoGebra to foster understanding-ratio/fractions files demonstration A have-a-chat video: Ile Ilejevski and Richard Andrew.
00:20 Kids should build their understanding in maths rather than being given understanding
02:10 Ratio file demo
04:40 Story of the nurse worried she’d kill a patient one day because she didn’t understand ratio! Why conceptual understanding is key and how GeoGebra helps.
06:00 Fraction of an amount file demo
3. Transforming maths teaching with GeoGebra
Transforming Mathematics Teaching with GeoGebra
2:45 Explaining what it means to be proficiency with GeoGebra.
3:30 The changes for Ile re the course
4:00 Using GeoGebra with students who are not confident with mathematics … Creates a visual that allows them to remember
Why using GeoGebra is a game-changer - the diff between using GeoGebra Proficient and not using it at all.
7:15 min Desmos vs GeoGebra
9:00 Using GeoGbera in a student-centred manner
10:10 Starting with fun is super important … the rotating colourful polygons
12:00 using GeoGebra with a polygon worksheet - handling misconceptions around angles
14:00 The protractor discussion … two diff things … concept of angle size vs measuring angle size
16:00 The power in using GeoGebra for understanding - comparisons with the traditional approach
16:15 The issue of too many students sitting in class not understanding what they are working on - how the clever use of GeoGebra has students understand!
18:15 Fractions, decimal and percentages - the #1 crash and burn topic/s for students.
18:50 Ile demonstrates his percentage file.
22:20 (Richard) Most teachers have tried strategies designed to have students more engaged and understand better but they haven’t worked - they’ve taken too much time and/or students have not learnt. Teachers need a roadmap to adopt these strategies.
