The Session 2 project is to (1) create and (2) share at least one screencast (save the file to your hard drive) or pencast that captures an explanation of a mathematics concept or a GeoGebra file or applet, explaning at least one of the following; aim your explanation at a middle school student audience:

  1. the math and process "behind the scenes" of a GeoGebra file
  2. how to use an applet to learn math concepts
  3. a math concept (for example, explaining a math concept in a pencast)

If you are using a GeoGebra file, you can choose to use your animation file from last time, one of the examples on the handout:



or a file from the samples shared with you on the flash drive, or on the GeoGebra wiki or on the lists at the bottom of maine.edc.org.

Criteria:


1. The screencast or pencast should meet the following minimum criteria:

O Between 1 and 4 minutes long

O State the purpose of the screencast or pencast (see 1-3 above)

O Include simultaneous recorded audio

O Explanation of mathematics (fits one of the three purposes, above)

2. Upload your file to this site (temporarily) or share with the facilitator on a USB flash drive
  • include "PPS-S2_firstName" as the start of the file name, replacing "firstName" with your own first name
  • if uploading, post a link on this page with your first name (do NOT include your last name)
