The Mathletics eBooks have been developed by a team of teachers and mathematicians, to create a comprehensive publication that acts as a textbook, workbook and study guide for your students. Concept-based, and designed to complement our online activities, they can be used as part of a blended approach to learning. Incorporating GeoGebra interactives into your classroom brings maths to life using graphics and algebra. Get started by signing in via www.mathletics.com.
Students are introduced to a key concept in the Basics section using clear vocabulary and examples, followed by a question section to immediately consolidate understanding. Ask learners to consider prior knowledge before starting the workbook. The media available in the Lessons area of your Teacher Centre can support visual learners.
Enhancing Application Skills
Having mastered the theory, students apply their understanding to different scenarios in Using Our Knowledge. Move on to Knowing Even More for consolidation. Recreate scenarios from Using Our Knowledge as practical activities to appeal to your kinaesthetic learners.
Bringing Maths to Life
Illustrating a concept by manipulating the dynamic variables of GeoGebra will unravel complex theories visually. The simplicity of the application makes teacher demonstrations explicit, leading students to clear understanding, and the confidence to apply their knowledge. Enrich the mathematical experience of Gifted and Talented students by asking them to discuss and define the parameters of the GeoGebra elements.
The Knowing More section builds on the foundations of the Basics by prompting students to investigate more advanced methodology. Learning is carefully scaffolded through logical pathways to embed increasingly complex rules. Encourage students to write their own notes around the content to create a study guide. Set related tasks through the Results section in your Teacher Centre for further reinforcement.
Developing Higher Order Reasoning
Once students reach the Thinking More and Thinking Even More sections they are fully equipped to order, classify and analyse information. The activities in these areas ask students to demonstrate logic and verify their responses systematically. Use problem solving activities to encourage students to explore the relationship between concepts. Students should reflect on their progress against their prior knowledge and understanding.
