### Awesome Resource - Color-coded Input Wall Charts

I have previously blogged about My Color-coded Guided Notes and how much the students love them because they help them see the connections within the concepts. Example of My Students' Guided Notes: Along with color-coding in the students' guided notes, I also create color-coded input wall charts. I coordinate the color-coding to match the students' notebooks. The students find my color-coded input charts really helpful as a quick resource when they are doing their Worthwhile Wednesday…

### Lessons Taught and Lessons Learned as a High School Math Teacher

I recently posted the notes I have my students over the different forms a linear function could take. I mentioned that I decided to teach all of the forms at once this year, and I wasn't sure if that was a good idea or not. Different Forms of Linear Function Notes On the first day of this section of the unit, we only took the notes that can see in the above picture. So, we wrote the names of each form and the general form that it takes. Then, we played the flyswatter game. I've written about…

### Let Pythagoras show you how Pythagorean Theorem was discovered!

How did Pythagoras come up with his Pythagorean Theorem for Right Triangles? (The sum of the squares of the two legs is equal to the square of the hypotenuse.) Let Pythagoras himself show your students his graphical method! Worksheet by teacher Daniel Evans. Pythagorean Theorem by Pythagoras. (He w...

### Lessons Taught and Lessons Learned as a High School Math Teacher

This year, I'm teaching Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 for the third time and Trigonometry for the first time. Every year, my school offers a different advanced math elective above Algebra 2. We've cycled through college algebra and statistics. They were both just okay. But, this year, I am LOVING trig. I think there are several reasons for this. First, it's my first year to do interactive notebooks with my advanced math class. I guess for my first two years of teaching, I didn't think my advanced…

### Pythagorean - Part 2

Part 1 with my new intro for this year is HERE. Our finished right triangle pages looked like this... I know that's kind of a crazy picture. I used my CamScanner app and sent it to a student that was in ISS so she could check her work before moving to the next activity. If you don't have CamScanner I highly recommend it! I can scan and save as a high quality pdf right from my classroom - huge time saver! Anyway... next we completed this little booklet. It was all about the relationships…
