• The Importance Of Project Based Learning

I plotted 2 points in Desmos, (2 toppings, 13.85) and (4 toppings, 16.99), both are medium pizzas. I asked students to get the price per topping which is the slope and subtract it two times from \$13.85 to get the base price or the y-intercept. We tested the equation by opening the website of pizza hut. Students are able to compare the prices as well as qualities of the pizza stores. In this activity I was able to engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources. The activity was followed by developing students’ conceptual understanding of slope intercept form. With the prices fresh in my students’ minds, we came up with slope’s formula of y2 – y1 over x2 – x1 or the prices of 4 toppings subtracted by the price of 2 toppings over the difference in the number of toppings. They projected the lines until they get the y-intercept. Students checked the validity of their equations using Desmos online graphing calculator. This activity helped me develop technology-enriched learning environments, managing their own learning and assessing their own…

For Martyna. My best friend and biggest fan. Back Track Traveling through the mountains that are pregnant with a winter breeze, a light grey haze slowly forces itself into my line of sight.

As I was accustomed to turning on skis, I automatically assumed it would be as simple as turning the board with your feet. This knowledge did not translate well to snowboards, and as I attempted to turn right on the beginner’s slope, I fell backwards into the snow with a loud, audible THUD! As it turns out, turning on a snowboard requires you to apply pressure on the board with both feet in the desired direction you want to turn; this method causes the snowboard to carve a deep ridge in the…
