I'm finding some good stuff, but for today's lesson am going to stick to have the students thinking of anti-chain rule.<br /><br />For the integration by substitution lesson though:<br />http://math.uww.edu/~mcfarlat/substit.htm<br />http://homework.zendog.org/usub.pdf<br />http://math.georgiasouthern.edu/~bmclean/calculus/powerpoint/AntiChainRule4.pptTraveling Emhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12973924965960467776noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-16313624796490029.post-22969064848195737322009-08-27T05:00:00.001-07:002009-08-27T05:04:32.481-07:00BearingsFound some cool and useful sites today for teaching bearings with an interactive white board.<br /><br />A great directional compass as well as good notes.<br /><a href="http://www.mathsteacher.com.au/year7/ch08_angles/07_bear/bearing.htm">http://www.mathsteacher.com.au/year7/ch08_angles/07_bear/bearing.htm</a><br /><br />Interactive bearings.<br /><br />Students are given a bearing and they have to draw it - with or without the help of a compass.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk/vtc/ngfl/maths/echalk/bearings/drawingBearings/drawingBearings.html">http://www.ngfl-cymru.org.uk/vtc/ngfl/maths/echalk/bearings/drawingBearings/drawingBearings.html</a>Traveling Emhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12973924965960467776noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-16313624796490029.post-12890966732141621422009-08-27T04:51:00.000-07:002009-08-27T05:00:24.476-07:00IntroductionIt's my 5th year teaching high school math. Time to get serious about my teaching and reflecting on my teaching. I'd also like to keep better track of the resources I find useful. So that's what I'll be doing here. Likely it will be boring for anyone besides me to read. Hell, it'll probably be boring for me to read as well.Traveling Emhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12973924965960467776noreply@blogger.com0
