Enhancing those Mathcasts ...
|•||FSCreations' ExamView Assessment Suite - Testing and assessment software ($139). A number of mathcast makers use dynamic ExamView questions and solutions to create copyright free standards-aligned math and science questions as the basis for their movies. Many of us are also now starting to share our question banks.|
|•||Ventura Educational Systems math and science clip art CD collections (about $50). These are huge collections of clip art that have been primarily created by Dr. Fred Ventura, a gifted artist and former math teacher/professor.|
|•||A TI Virtual Calculator (TI 82, 83, 83+, etc) will allow you to show how to use this tool on screen. It's a great tool for classroom use as well and a great improvement over using an overhead projector, a special TI graphing calculator, and a fragile (and expensive) viewscreen.|
|•||TI SmartView (TI-84) - like the TI Virtual calculator but with more features. About $135 US. 30 day free trial available to educators. The September 2006 issue of the NCTM's Mathematics Teacher had a great article/review of this product.|
Needed: Could someone make some screencasts showing how TI SmartView works for the rest of us?
These two screencasts are of the same problem using the TI-SmartView but one has captioning (or subtitles). The problem is determining the displacement by using the area under a velocity-time graph.
