Using Electronic Devices with Excel Math

o

Projectable Lessons

Price: $54 per CD per grade level, usable by all teachers on a single site

Combo Price: $75 for Projectable CD & a printed Teacher Edition for that same grade (a savings of $15!)

Projectable Boy

Each Excel Math Projectable displays the daily lesson sheets so you and your students can focus together on the concepts for the day. The Excel Projectable CD includes standard PDF files that can be displayed on whiteboards, projection screens, walls, or interactive whiteboards. Projectable lessons may also be printed on paper for use with a document camera, or on overhead transparencies.

Excel Math Projectables are available for Kindergarten - Grade 6. The first slide shows the lesson with problems. This is the material found on the left front side of the Student Lesson Sheets. Space is provided for the student (or teacher) to solve the problems on the whiteboard for the entire class to see:

The next slide shows the work and solutions in red. Additional text and graphics and color may be used to clarify complex concepts.

Projectable Slide

 

Each Excel Projectable CD contains 155 lessons for one grade level, a reference copy of the Teacher Edition (TE) for use on-screen (the TE is non-printable), and the manipulatives. Projectable Lessons do not include Guided Practice, Homework or tests. Files can be copied to a local drive, and can be used in any number of classrooms at a single school site.

Student-Held Electronic Devices

Classroom hand-held electronic devices, MP4 players, desktop and laptop computers, and other student-held devices can be used as tools to involve the students as much as possible during the teaching of the lesson. An electronic student response system also gives the teacher an indication of the level of comprehension of the math concept being taught.

Electronic devices can be especially effective during the Lesson and Basic Fact Practice portions of the Student Lesson Sheets. If you only have enough electronic devices for two students per device, you can use collaborative learning to let the students work in pairs to arrive at the correct answer. If you prefer to have your students work independently, the student without a device can complete the problem on the lesson sheet. Have the students take turns and trade off using the electronic devices after every few problems.

EXAMPLE: Read problem number 1 aloud or display it from the Projectable CD. Let the students solve the problem and enter the answer on their computers or electronic devices. Check the answers and move on. Do the same with the Basic Fact Practice problems. Repeat any problems the students miss completely or don't understand.

Lesson

Suggested procedures for using student-held electronic devices:

  • The teacher gives the class a math problem, orally or written on the board or displayed from the Projectable CD.
  • When a student arrives at an answer, it should be displayed on the electronic device so the teacher can log in and determine if it is correct.
  • A hand-held device is turned face down and the student raises a hand or logs into the system to indicate readiness.
  • The teacher calls for the answer.
  • The students, looking forward, raise their devices showing only the teacher their answers. Or the teacher logs in to check the answers on the devices.
  • The teacher gives the correct answer after viewing the response. At this point, the teacher may choose a child to complete the problem on a whiteboard or interactive electronic board using the Projectable CD so students can see how to complete it correctly.
  • The teacher can repeat problems that were missed the first time so all students have a chance to get it right.

Advantages:

  • Each student has an opportunity to respond with an answer.
  • Other children do not ridicule a student with a wrong answer; only the teacher sees the response.
  • The student with the right answer gets the opportunity to display that knowledge to the teacher.
  • There is total involvement in the learning process by all students, creating an atmosphere of interactive learning.
