Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines What is a Polygon? - Section 5: Student Practice


I wish I would have used this interactive site, Polygon or Not, to provide independent practice sorting polygons from non-polygons. By integrating technology, I'm often able to meet technology and math goals at the same time. 

Also, technology provides diverse entry points for students. Often times, when students are provided with multiple pathways to learning, a higher number of students reach the lesson's goal.

This could also be projected and used as a whole-group. I like to pass around a wireless mouse.
