This week, we’re talking about how to use Woot Math as a scaffolded worksheet. The content of this poll covers graphing systems of inequalities but the basic structure applies to any class, math or otherwise. We discuss how to use the scratchpad as a place to provide support and how the progression of problems can help students learn as they progress in the poll.

This week’s math poll isn’t really about math at all! This poll, created by Mr. Ward, highlights the flexibility that Woot Math provides in creating fun and interesting polls for the classroom. Mr. Ward created this fifty task poll “US Geography - identify all 50 states!” to test our knowledge of US Geography.

Sound fun? We thought so. (Perhaps we should rename Woot Math to WootMathEnglishPhysicsChemistryGeographAndMore …. nah, we like math too much.) But we do think the possibilities are limitless. Woot!

The state of education technology is vast. How do you know which products are best for your students? Which ones have been tried and tested in the classroom? Do they have research behind them?

Algebra is commonly referred to as a “gatekeeper” to higher level learning, not just in mathematics but also other fields. My goal as an algebra teacher is not only to make sure my students pass my course, but I want them to pass with confidence in themselves. This confidence will allow them to walk into other fields persevering and overcoming challenges. Therefore, it is crucial that I have frequent check-ins both with the whole class and with students individually. I am always searching for interactive tech tools that allow for whole group discussion and engaging activities. This is where Woot Math Polls have been a major success in my classroom.

As a middle school math teacher, I continue to see many students struggle with making sense of rational numbers and especially operations with fractions. To help address this deep need, I have found Woot Math to be effective in building the conceptual understanding my students need to succeed.
