Day 22: Made my first teaching video!
I am sooooo excited!! I’ve been wanting to do this since last year, but haven’t taken the plunge until today. After the test on polynomials, I wanted my precalculus students to start an introduction to rational functions, but it has never been successful in the past because the students said they didn’t understand. Well with a static piece of paper, that is understandable, huh! Ayears ago, my hubby got me a Bamboo Fun for Christmas, but I had never found a use for it really until now. It worked like a charm. I had to do a few takes on different parts but with Microsoft Movie Maker, I was able to split and merge video clips together. It is a little long for “best practices” suggestions (14 minutes), albeit, I can’t wait to hear what the kids think!
