Procedural or Conceptual Learning

Conceptual learning provides models, games and multiple ways to understand how to solve the math.

 

Procedural learning provides a formula, trick, or method to apply to solving the math.

Workshop 1  GAMES AND GAMING

 

 

If Montessori's Principles are parts of a game  - point of interest, self-correction and continuous learning - kids and adults experience learning in the Flow Zone.

4. Do you see or hear about all three of Montessori's Principles assisting students' learning in Motion Math games?

 

Point of Interest-- something draws the learner's focus and attention to the experience

 

Self Correcting Feedback-- materials offer self-correcting information 

 

Continuous Learning-- every play of a game increases learners' knowledge, skills and understanding

5. Throughout K-12 classes, did you play online games or use a gaming system in math classes to learn math? 

 

 If yes, how or why did the games keep you in a Flow Zone or out of the Flow Zone?

  

 

 

 

Workshop 2  Math and Gender

Researchers in psychology have been studying STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math) and a marked gender gap phenomenon. Girls are less likely to major in these fields in college or enter them in the job market.

 

A recent study from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign suggests that "children can adopt beliefs from information they hear about their gender," through literature, television and media, toys, and conversations with adults.

"A girl who hears that “girls are bad at math” can internalize that message, believe she IS bad at math, and do worse at math because of it."
-Maggie Severns, Future Tense, June 14, 2012

 

Hear

How One College Is Changing the Tech Gender Gap reports 18% of U. S. in computer science graduates are female.  

 

6. List four initiatives to teaching and learning Harvey Mudd College instituted to attract women to the computer science program and keep them learning.

 

7. If you were expanding this program to attract and interest all kinds of students in computer science, mathematics and engineering design courses, what would you CREATE THAT IS NOT PRESENTLY THERE to add to Harvey Mudd's initiatives?

(Consider what you learned about not having much money when playing Spent. The knowledge you gained may inspire your ideas about what to create to attract students.)

Stop motion animation INSTRUCTIONS

 

 

 

Log your time making and revising your Stop Motion Animation Video as SELF-TUTORING hours OR TUTORING OTHERS hours. 

  

Email your video to me, or 

upload it your learning log this way:

Google drive does not allow you to insert video into a google doc.

A solution to this is to record your stop motion animation video on your phone or computer.

Take the video file and upload it to google drive.

Once uploaded to google drive, set the permissions for the video to anyone with the link can view--click the three dots in the top right corner, then click share.  

 

 

8. Where is math involved in stop motion animation video making? What concepts are you using?

 

 

BIG IDEA Closer Can learning resources influence our mindsets and help us learn? 

 

9. Applying your knowledge about factors that produce growth OR fixed mindsets, analyze in a few sentences your mindset about learning mathematics.

    Describe how you got your mindset.

 

10. Would having multimodal resources positively assist you to have a growth mindset learning math?

Multimodal resources this week are stop motion animation video productionthe simulation game Spentand Tom Lehrer's song That's Mathematics,

Qwirkle: Math Without Numbers

 

    • Math is the least favorite of more than one-third of students, the highest unfavorable rating of any subject.

 

 


Today we are going to play a game of shapes and colors that promotes mathematical thinking and mathematical learning, both procedurally and conceptually. 

 

It is called Qwirkle

 

  • Used to teach math problem-solving skills

 

  • Improve children's capacity to think logically and solve problems in novel situations

 

  • Promotes visual-spatial reasoning

 

  • Math concepts of sets with characteristics 


Activities

  • Qwirkle consists of 108 wooden blocks of six shapes and six colors.
  • Briefly explain and demonstrate rules (procedures) for playing the game
    • Use game from the previous group to show how rows are built and points are scored
  • Create teams of 2 or 3
  • Ask each team to create a team name
  • Draw 6 blocks and begin game play
    • 4th Grade Rules: Play as many blocks as you can during each turn
    • Ask team players to call the points as they get them


Play Qwirkle Against the Computer with the Qwirkle APP

 

 

 

What is the procedural and conceptual learning in the game?

 

 

Math TUTORIALS

View TED talk: Kahn Academy

Salman Khan's original intent for creating his tutoring site completely changed when users he had not planned for found the videos.

Summarize Khan's initial intent for his videos and compare that to what Khan Academy is now.
 

 

Would you conclude that this change resulted because of amistake, having a growth mindset,creating a change of purpose or something else entirely?
