Free, Middle School Math Distance Learning

Geogebra + Illustrative Mathematics + Your LMS 
= Great Teaching and Learning

      SABIER is excited about the new LMS courses we’ve designed for middle school math using Geogebra’s digital Illustrative Mathematics apps for distance learning.

 

    The courses allow teachers to fully engage students in middle school math distance learning. Teachers can monitor all student progress in real time without the hassle of screen sharing in addition to  increasing  communication and collaboration between students. 

 

     These free, openly licensed LMS courses  extend the capabilities of Geogebra’s interactive applets designed for video conferencing software. (This link has a great short video describing the apps.) At their own pace and time, students will be able to continue their Zoom, Google Meet, or Microsoft Teams online synchronous lessons to collaborate and work in groups. 

 

       The increased communication between teachers and students will build  community by enabling students to communicate with their teacher and each other using video, chat, audio, or photos. The courses expand assessment options synced to student information systems. Parents appreciate the links to the extensive Illustrative Mathematics material provided for parents. The LMS courses give teachers quick access to extensive narratives that describe the mathematical work that will unfold in each lesson in every unit.

 

    The courses are available on MoodleNet. It’s not necessary to create an account; simply browse and click the title of a course to download it. The courses will work in Moodle, Canvas, D2L or Schoology. Or you can fill out this form to receive the free, openly licensed LMS courses.
