Auroa Primary School: Educreations to Show Mathematics Strategy
In class for Mathematics we've been looking at using tools to explain strategies. One of the tools that our students have been using is Educreations which is available as an App for Ipad. These students have created these explanations about strategies to solve problems. They've worked out a problem, worked on creating an explanation of the strategy and then recorded the strategy. This is from Tahana who is explaining how to solve problems by doubling and halving. Isabelle from Room Ones Question was: How many hours are in a year? She worked out the answer using strategy and explains her answer as follows: The final example is from Meg. Meg question uses rounding to solve the problem 39 multiplied by 80.
