We are finding new ways to get math activities to our K-12 students and families in Austin.
Today we are providing three models to families served by Jose Carrasco and the Dobie Family Resource Center in north Austin:
- A geometry activity set that can be used for young children learning shapes and for middle schoolers and even high school. It includes a mini protector to extend the learning and an activity sheet (download here) in English and Spanish designed by Ximena Garcia who is working remotely from Monterrey, Mexico.
- A Negative Number Slider ideal for middle schoolers and tiles that can be used to see how 4 – 7 results in -3 on the number line. Using the blank sides we can create algebraic equations like 6 – (4+x) = -3 what is x?
- A few mini-unit circle sets ideal for high school students working with trigonometric identities, the Pythagorean Theorem, coordinates, radians and degrees.
