#Teach180: Days 131-140

This year I've taken on the #teach180 challenge.  The challenge is to post one tweet per day showing a glimpse inside your classroom.  I'm also putting the tweets together in a biweekly blog so that I can share the resources that I'm tweeting about.

Day 131: Today we had our weekly cumulative standards based quiz.
Day 132:  Today in algebra 2 we practiced finding inverses graphically with Mishaal Surti's Desmos assignment.  For whatever reason, my kids understood this much better this year.  I give credit to to awesomeness of visualizing with Desmos.
Day 133:  Today in geometry, we used Khan Academy to practice finding the area of composite shapes.
Day 134:  Today in geometry we practiced finding surface area and lateral area of prisms and cylinders using this @ExploreLearning Gizmo.  I think it really helps students to see both the 3D representations and the nets to make the connection between area and surface area.

Day 135:  Today in algebra 2, we practiced finding inverses of functions algebraically.  Then we checked our work using this Geogebra sketch.

Day 136:  Today we had our weekly quiz.  Last one of the third marking much grading :/
Day 137:  Today in geometry we practiced finding the surface area and lateral area of pyramids and cones using this Gizmo from ExploreLearning.  I love how you can instantly create an infinite number of examples with a drag of a slider.
Day 138:  Today in algebra 2 we practiced finding the inverse of logarithmic functions with this color by number assignment. Weird how a little coloring motivates students :)  I think it is the relaxing aspect of coloring.

Day 139:  Today in geometry, we practiced finding the volume of cylinders and prisms by using this ExploreLearning Gizmo.  I love how you can see the relationship between right and oblique prisms so easily with this tool.

Day 140:  Today in algebra 2 we used EDpuzzle to learn about solving exponential equations.  EDpuzzle is awesome because you can import any video.  You can trim it, add in audio and written information.  You can also insert questions to check for understanding.

That's it for this round of #teach180.  It's never too late to join in the fun!
