For this curriculum study, I chose third grade mathematics as my unit of study. As far as my objectives go, I would want my students to walk away from this particular section of fractions with the understanding of what a fraction is, the difference between the components of a fraction such as the numerator and denominator, knowing how to identify how many parts of a whole are shaded in, and knowing how to simplify a fraction. As far as my instructional method, I created an original prezi, which is similar to a powerpoint but differs due to being more interactive, and I am going to use that when I teach the lesson. The prezi starts off with a quote that relates to fractions with an explanation below it. I will use that to start off the lesson with hopes that it will engage my students and get them interested. After I do that, I will review the homework from the night before and the topic that we discussed. I also will ask if the students have any questions, and I will help the students who need it. Then, once the review is complete, I will begin my lesson. The second slide of the prezi explains how fractions are applicable to the students’ lives, and I find this to be important because many students question why they need to understand math, and I want to emphasize to them that math is used in every aspect of life whether or not a person realizes it. I will also show the students pictures and check for their understanding by providing me with the answers to the questions.…
In preparation for fractions number talk what I observed was very beneficial for students at the carpet it allowed students to discuss and share with one another. I liked the fact that after a student share students had to give a particular cue saying if they agreed with peer. I thought that was awesome. I also like how she went over what to expect during learning at table and how students will share. So some type of feedback was to be expected even if student did not still quite understand. As…
Note: As you begin to insert your responses to the prompts found in this document, please be sure to save it frequently, (and note the location of the file) so as to not lose any of your work. Once completed, you will submit this document to WGU for grading. Instruct What student misconceptions have you encountered related to fraction, decimal, and percentage concepts? How do you help students understand the notion of equivalence among fractions or prepare them for this understanding? One…
recognition of world to this earthly and material world. When the world cut its cord from its origin and destination, the only priority with is prominent is describing the present situation of the world and things around. Beginning of rationalism of thoughts must track its origin in Greek philosophy and hidden theoretical rationalism found there. Because by presenting a rationalistic interpretation of the world, religious and heavenly interpretations gradually faded. This kind of novel thought…
John Gutmann was one of America’s most distinctive photographers. Gutmann was born in Germany where he became an artist. He later fled Germany due to the Nazi’s because he was a Jew. Gutmann moved to San Francisco and re-established himself as a photojournalist captivating the lives of Americans. He mainly took photographs of people who were imperfect like himself because of his Jewish nationality. Gutmann targeted the poor, circus folk, the gay community and the rich. Two of Gutmann’s works are…
The fundamental theorem of Calculus: The fundamental theorem of calculus asserts the interrelated properties of integration and differentiation. It says that a function when differentiated, can be brought back by integrating (anti-derivative) or a function when integrated, can be brought back by differentiation. First theorem: Let f be a function that is integrable on [a,x] for each x in [a,b], then let c be such that a≤c≤b and define a new function A as follows, A(x)=∫_c^x▒f(x)dt, if a≤x≤b.…
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus evaluate an antiderivative at the upper and lower limits of integration and take the difference. This theorem is separated into two parts. The first part is called the first fundamental theorem of calculus and states that one of the antiderivatives of some function may be obtained as the integral of the function with a variable bound of integration. The second part of the theorem, called the second fundamental theorem of…
Memory and personal identity are an integral part of our lives. These characteristics and traits assist us in the way we make decisions and approach situations. Memory in relation to personal identity is a topic that has been studied by several Philosophers. The question of whether or not memory presupposes identity is a circular one, and therefore makes this question important. To study this, I looked at Parfits theory of Psychological continuity, and how it was seen as problematic due to its…
Materiality and Identity Megan Holmes’s “Miraculous Images in Renaissance Florence” examines many of the ramifications of materiality. The materiality, an image’s physical properties, has direct impacts on the expression and popularity of immagini miracolose. These sacred images are subjects of miracles throughout the late 13th to 16th centuries. Two of the most important ramifications of materiality include the accessibility of the religious images and manifestation of the miracles. In this…
1. Henri Lebesgue [8] Lebesgue is credited for many amazing discoveries to different areas of mathematics. In the area of topology, Lebesgue is known for his covering theorem which is used for finding the dimensions of a set. He is also credited for his work on the Fourier series. He was able to demonstrate that using term by term integration of a series that were Lebesgue integrable functions was always valid and therefore, gave validation to Fourier’s proof of his series. What is now…
