Title - Yearly Goal
For my first teacher comment blog, I was assigned to Shireen Damehr's Math Teacher Mambo blog. On her blog, Shireen Dadmehr gives a summary of her thoughts and feelings during the first week of school. She gives very high regards to her advisory students and she states that she loves her students especially since it has been a long time since she has seen them (the last time was when she taught Geometry). She gives a link to a quote.
Title - Unit Circles and Radians
On this blog post, Shireen Damehr uses a fun and quirky way (News Alert Promos) to explain that kids are struggling with fractions. In her precalculus class, she tried a new method to teach special angles around the unit circle. She used templates of various radians and placed them on different color paper so her students could placed them in their notebook. She explains how she teaches different angles and references triangles in hopes to find "Fraction Geniuses" for the school year.
