Good Ideas need to be borrowed and some need to be restarted!

After the hard work you put into your growing posts you now need to use the blog as a means of studying and getting ready for your final exam. The scribe posts will begin again on Monday. Everyday the scribe will be responsible for explaining what happened in class including diagrams and easy to understand notes. We are going to have a second list starting up. It is called the Research Director. Ms Armstorng at DMCI created this idea.

Here is how Ms Armstrong their teacher describes the job.

"Research Director". That person's job will be to search the net for a great new math site that helps to explain, reinforce, or extend a topic that we have covered in class. The Research Director will post a brief summary of the site, and share it with the class by creating a link.

Since most people prefer to learn from visuals, try looking for videos, diagrams, or java applets that demonstrate a topic really well. Maybe you can find a neat cartoon or powerpoint. You never know what you might find. Don't forget to credit the author of any material that you borrow. Just because it is on the internet, does not make it yours to take. One day someone may borrow intellectual property that you created - wouldn't you want them to at least recognize the efforts that you made???
The grade eight classes will be doing the same thing. With 40 School days left before your exam the time has come to shift gears and get going!! There will be a research director and scribe list posted on sp8mathzone. Work hard and scribe well. This will become a powerful exam study guide. You will be responsible for one scribe and one research directors job before the year is finished. Feel free to add posts or comments at anytime.
