Student Blog

The reason I have not posted lately is simple – I have been putting my effort into a student blog I have called y9msc. Not a very original name, it stands for “Year 9 Mooroopna Secondary College”. Check it out – I would love to get your comments.

After blogging to a teacher audience in 2009, I have gained enough confidence to see if a student Maths blog will significantly help students with their learning. So far mixed results. A few students don’t have internet access at home. Some have jumped right in, and already I have learnt things like – student X can’t multiply fractions.

Student Y is a keen student who cannot regularly attend school due to a medical condition. I am hoping that student Y will still have a successful year with the help of email, my student blog, and other web technology.

    My students are totally engaged when I include online math games within a lesson or as homework. The repetition and association that games = fun really helps them capture the subjects. My class really enjoys http://www.mangahigh.com/en_gb/ a new site with Algebra, Geometry, Quizzes, etc.

    I’m very pleased to have found your blog: filled with all of my favourite education hubs.

    I have been meaning to tell you about a new maths resource that is one of my new favourite links, Mangahigh.com. Although the site is new, it has a lot to offer and new maths games are being added frequently.

    I have been using it in the classroom and for homework. A great teacher’s resource they have put together is a lesson plan guide: http://www.mangahigh.com/
