Next message: Jan Robinson: "[Teacher-Talkmissinglink] How are the workshops going?"
I hope you are enjoying the activities from the Missing Link. I just
used the one from the last program and had some stellar results. I have
kids in science classes who have had a wide range of successful and
unsuccessful experiences in mathematics. Has anyone modified any of the
activities or come up with any new ones that meet the needs of sharp
kids who simply missed out on one of these concepts (scale factors is
the concept I worked with so far).
We used the scale up and down materials and moved from the 2 dimensional
realm to volumes and proportions in solutions. It worked well. If anyone
out there has a need for some science links to these math concepts let
me know. I would be happy to share the lessons or the links.
If you have time post some comments to this listserve. Jan and I are up
and running and anxious to hear from you.
