Reflection: Routines and Procedures The Digital Scientific Notation Worksheet - Section 1: Start Up


Before starting, we discuss different ways that students can effectively use the digital resources provided in this lesson. I give some ideas. I also ask students to share some ideas. We talk about why certain things help and why others may not help. For example, many students request music when they work individually. However, this lesson encourages students to reference videos when they need help. Is it efficient to spend time finding music you like and then pausing it when you need to watch a math video? Probably not, but I always let the students decide. I believe need to make this choice for themselves. If I see them getting distracted by music, I have a conversation with them and suggest alternatives.

Some of the more pragmatic suggestions including using video in ways that we can't use real time conversation. Students love having the ability to pause, rewind and replay segments of video. I always find it interesting that students often need to hear that this is allowed. Many of them say, "wait, I am allowed to rewind? Its okay if I need to watch certain parts over and over again?" I share stories with them where I have had to replay videos parts 20 or 30 times to get it. Sometimes I don't understand what is being said and other times I just can't focus. 

We also talk about the importance of taking notes while doing work. I stress that the brain can always remember better when you take action to write your work down. "You don't need to write everything down, but you should write down the basic steps you used to solve the problem. Not only do you want to increase your chances of remembering a problem, but you want to be able to look back on your notes when you have a question."
