Teaching Square Roots Using Cheez-Its

Teaching Square Roots Using Cheez-Its

I share my thoughts pre-lesson, vlog the actual lesson with two of my classes, and reflect on what I'd change next time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_1g7ycPsRo Here's the slide show I created for the lesson. I talk about KenKen puzzles in the video as well. These puzzles are an option in my class for students who finish their work early. Find the puzzles HERE. I originally got this idea from a teacher named Julie Reulbach. See her write up HERE. __ Music by Podington Bear - http://soundofpicture.com

Sara and I embark to Kenya for a month of medical volunteer work. I'm vlogging the experience. I volunteered at The Kijabe Boys High School for a couple of days to teach them some basic photography skills for a yearbook type magazine they're putting together. Got the gig by just heading up there and talking to the principal and asking if there was any way I could volunteer for a couple days.  Told him I taught math and computer skills, but that I also did videography and photography as well.  The photography part was a little bit of a lie…
