Another teacher in a group I am in shared this great idea. So, I made my own template for defining characteristics of quadrilaterals in a comic strip. (I totally copied this idea!) Here's a template for anyone that might want to use it. You do not need to follow my example, you can amp it up for older Geometry students, or simplify what the characters are saying. It's totally open ended. This is just an example. Check it out and download it here ➡️ https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vg8w3gnUzVE2F8AbUiSovWW61xsVrTD7

#didyouknow that? Or 6 interesting facts about 2020.
⠀
💥 2020 is the 22nd natural number for which the sum of the digits is equal to the number of the digits (in other words, the #arithmetic mean of digits equals 1).
⠀
💥 "Two Thousand Twenty" - all words begin with the same letter in English.
⠀
💥 All the digits of 2020 are even. In its square and cube all digits are even too. On the contrary, in 2020th prime number p(2020) = 17579 all digits are odd.
⠀
💥 The 2020th decimal digits of constants π, e and φ are the same. By the way, this property is not so rare. The minimum such number is 12, the predecessor of 2020 is 1905, the next will be 2060.
3,141592653589 ... 12694683 ...
2,718281828459 ... 82922443 ...
1,618033988749 ... 43062623 ...
⠀
💥 According to a hypothesis of Wacław Sierpiński, 2020 is not representable in the form x^3 + y^3 + 2*z^3 with integers x, y, z.
⠀
💥 2020 is self-descriptive. A self-descriptive number is b digits long, indexed by 0 ... b-1 and for all n, the n-th digit equals the number of n's in the number. In the number 2020 there are 2 zeros, 0 ones, 2 twos, and 0 threes.

IMPACT.
Our school decided to help students by making it mandatory for phones to be put up in their bags which are placed in the front of the room. We’ve all noticed a huge difference in participation, discussions and all around climate! This is a snapshot of kids and our very own Mr. V at lunch. They are allowed to have their cell phones during lunch but these girls decided to play uno instead. Mr. V joined them and all the while built relationships with his students!
Be an advocate for the kids. Help them make those choices and show them how fun it can be to put the phone down. 🙌🏽🌟 #iteachmath#ilovemath#ilovemystudents#msmath#msmathchat #middleschool #middleschoolmath #middleschoolmathteacher #iteach7th #mathmatters #mathtalks #numbertalks #teachersofinsta #teachersofinstagram #thefacilitatortot #standardsbased #PBL #projectbasedlearning #visiblelearning #masterylevels #joboaler #caroldweck #growthmindset #publicschool #georgiateachers #letthemlearn #lovemaths #lovemath #teachingismypassion #teachthemtolovelearning

Sooooo... I was wrapping presents for our White Elephant gift exchange 🐘🎁 and the math teacher came out in me. 👩🏫 We've been talking a lot about surface area in class, and the kids just really want to take the easy route and find Volume. (V=L*W*H) It's much easier and quicker than finding the area of each face (side) of a rectangular prism (box). BUT - so important! I tell the kids it's the "wrap," not the "fill." It kinda works.
Kinda.
Because we don't "wrap" edge to edge. We fold, and overlap, and tape. 🤔
Sometimes it's so hard to make math relevant to kids.
Any ideas?

Paul Strait and Anders Kaseorg become the authors of a new record in #Euclidea! Almost at the same time, these two smart guys proposed two different versions of a universal solution in 8 E-moves for level 10.4 "Rotation 90°". Congratulations! 🥳🤗👍 ⠀
A little #hint:
First, you should construct a point symmetric to the center of rotation A relative to the rotated line BC, and draw circles (A, B) and (A, C). It takes 4 of 8 moves. Then it remains to understand which lines and points will be needed next (it is convenient to use Explore mode for that).

Do you want to become an author of new record in #Euclidea?
We have received several 8E solutions of the 10.4 level "Rotation 90°" (now the goal is 9E). But none of them is universal, i. e. satisfies the statement of the problem for any configuration of given point and segment. For example, solution from the carousel does not work if the point A is not on the given segment. Euclidea accepts that solution, but it is not considered as a record.
Recently, we found that a universal 8E solution of 10.4 exists!
Try to find it right now: https://www.euclidea.xyz/game/90RotationCCW
Send us screenshot of your solution in private message. The author of the record will be announced in a separate post!

I am kind of obsessed with these Connect 4 Activities for partners to solve one and two step equations. The added depth of searching through the question choices to pick a good one to solve makes this activity top notch in my book. Critical thinking, planning, and strategy play a big part in this activity along with the actual mathematics of solving the equations. Love Love Love This! I got these from goteachmaths.co.uk Their resources are fabulous. Check out their site here: ➡️ https://goteachmaths.co.uk/. ** I will link the resource in my bio. ** Here's the exact resource and it has 2 different pages ♥: ➡️ https://goteachmaths.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Linear-Equations-Variable-on-One-Side-Mixed-Non-Calculator-Four-in-a-Row-A4.pdf

Three ideas of constructing parallel line through a given point using a compass and a straightedge in 4 moves.
⠀ 🎓 The problem:
Construct a line parallel to the given line through the given point A, like the task #euclidea_puzzle_9 or level 5.1 from Euclidea: https://www.euclidea.xyz/game/Parallel
1.
Rhombus
Take an arbitrary point B on the given line and construct the circle (B, A). Let C be an intersection point of the circle and the line. Then construct two more circles (A, B) and (C, B) that are intersected at point D. ABCD is a rhombus (a quadrilateral with four congruent sides) by construction. Opposite sides of a rhombus are always parallel, so AD is parallel to the given line.
2.
Reflections (Rectangle)
Take an arbitrary point B on the given line. Construct the circles (B, A) and (C, A). Let D be the second intersection of those circles. Note that A and D are symmetric about the given line. Let point E be opposite to D in circle (C, A). It is a reflection of D with respect to point C. This means that AE is parallel to the given line because A and E are at the same distance from it.
3.
Trapezoid
Take an arbitrary point B on the given line and draw circle (B, A). Let C be an intersection point of the circle with the line. Next, we use point D that lies on the perpendicular bisector of BC to construct point E that is symmetric to A with respect to the bisector. Note that ABCE is an isosceles trapezoid.

Revision #1 for the Fraction Spiders...no percents on this one, but it has 8 versions and a list of multiples that can work with each sheet. That list of #multiples is not inclusive, there are infinite multiples that will work, but they get really big, fast. LOL I included MANY for each sheet. Check it out here to download for free ➡️ https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HJ9sx0EjHqf0XkkZ3gA8FTpt5I7umz5q/view?usp=sharing
I will work on a percent version.

Love the format of these #fraction of amount spiders. I only use numbers that kids can do mental math. I want students to build a relationship between the fractional parts. Check it out here ➡️ https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ITGbgxqs_BHdGZpk53CoJUcu0hLgwz2o/view?usp=sharing I also included a transition into fractions as percents. There are some blank templates you could fill in any with any fraction or percent amounts. #mathteachersfollowloop#graphicorganizers#visualmath#tes #math #msmath #mathchat #Iteach678 #iteachalgebra1 #iteachmath #classicalconversations #logic #mathconnections #percents #homeschool #remediation #prealgebra #prealgebramathtutor #numbertalks #kagan #numberstrings

Solution for #euclidea_puzzle_10
⠀
🎓 The task is:
Direct the beam from point A to point B using one reflection from the exterior border of the grid.
⠀
🎓 Solutions:
1.
If it was possible to extend the grid beyond the border we could reflect point A across the horizontal line r, and connect its reflection A' with B. The intersection point of this line with r is the desired point P.
But in Pythagorea you cannot go out of the borders of the game grid so this method is not applicable.
2.
Our user @6.cats demonstrates another method. See the carousel for all solutions.
You should find the middle of AB (it is not difficult) and connect it with a point of the line r - the midpoint of the segment AA'. At the scheme the dotted line is the mid-segment in the triangle AA'B. By the property of the mid-segment, each segment connecting A with any point on the line A'B is divided in half by the dashed line. The required segment of AP is divided in half. The middle of AP lies on the horizontal line r', that is on the intersection of the dashed line with the line r'. Find its midpoint, connect it with A, and we get the intersection with r in point P.

💜 Classroom reveal 💙
Good things come to those who wait 💕 it may have taken 6 weeks to do the reveal, but now our classroom is complete 😍
This year is a new personalized learning adventure with Julie. 50ish students🤪, two rockstar teachers 🤩 and an amazing learning environment💜. Personalized online learning, problem based tasks to take their thinking to a new level and mastery demonstrations to show their knowledge. So excited to be able to look back this year at everything that will be accomplished, but we are not there YET! Now we put in the hard work to make lots of learning happen 😊

Tonight I was honored to speak for the last time as the current Columbia County District Teacher of the Year at the 2019-2020 TOTY banquet. This year has FLOWN by and has brought many challenges as well as blessings. I’m proud to reflect on this year’s journey and how far I’ve come as an educator, a leader and believer. A believer in purpose and drive for our education system and community at work. I’m not sure what the next part of the journey looks like, but I do plan on continuing to try and empower others and lead a positive path.
Just as I told the amazing educators tonight, I hope they choose to also continue their journey by growing in our educational philosophies and continue pouring heart and soul into what we do. #iteachmath#ilovemath#ilovemystudents#msmath#msmathchat #middleschool #middleschoolmath #middleschoolmathteacher #iteach7th #mathmatters #mathtalks #numbertalks #teachersofinsta #teachersofinstagram #thefacilitatortot #standardsbased #PBL #projectbasedlearning #visiblelearning #masterylevels #joboaler #caroldweck #growthmindset #publicschool #georgiateachers #letthemlearn #lovemaths #lovemath #teachingismypassion #teachthemtolovelearning
