__HOW TO USE COMMON CORY'S NearPod Presentations__

Here is a quick guide, slide by slide of how to use my NPPs. My presentations are about application and problem solving, not merely introducing a topic or working on the procedural skills. Therefore my presentations are unique, but follow a consistent structure.

__TITLE -__This slide is typically the mathematical topic underscored by the name of the application the topic helps us explore.**- This slide shows you objectives your students will meet as a result of this activity, as well as the appropriate Common Core Standard, grade level and approximate class time needed.**__STUDENTS WILL__**This slide shows teachers what topics are required for review or fluency before attempting this application.**__LET'S REVIEW -__**- This is the hook, the introduction to the application and it typically begs a question that is obvious to many.**__ACT # 1 VIDEO____Students will be asked to enter a question that came to their mind from the video. Remind them this is not "What color is the door handle?", rather they are to be relevant to the topic and something that they could find out mathematically? After they send their questions in, share out the most interesting ones, including the one that follows in the proceeding slides.__**WHAT QUESTION -****This will ask students to tell you the answers they know would be just too high or just too low as to set error bounds for the solution and frame their work. AGAIN, share out their entries and have them discuss which ones are appropriate and which ones are not.**__ERROR BOUNDS -__**The next item will be a poll of interval guesses students can make to predict what the solution will be. This can be seen as competition for the students. Share out the poll results so everyone knows where the class feels the answer might be or whether there is really nothing close to consensus at all.**__POLL of GUESSES -__**- The next slide will ask students what information they will need to be given in order to solve the problem. This puts them in the driver seat of formulating the problem and asking for what information is relevant. AGAIN, Share with the class the items and let them discuss which are relevant and how they intend to use them.**__WHAT INFORMATION____- Give them the information they need in the form of pictures, words or movies and let them continue to plan how they will solve this problem__**ACT #2****The next slide / slides will have the students model the situation, and solve the question the class asked earlier. They will show their work on their device and submit this to you. Be sure to SHARE these out and discuss what is correct and incorrect about particular solutions. You can send it back to them if you'd like them to adjust their work.**__MODEL / SOLVE -__**The next slide students will be prompted to write a statement of conclusion and sources of error that could have possibly kept them from the exact answer. Share the most interesting and conflicting of these with the class.**__CONCLUDE / ERROR SOURCES -____ACT #3 -__This is where we prove the math works or is reasonable, through video, pictures or well thought out solutions so students can see plainly their answer is reasonable or not and where they might have went wrong.**KHAN -**Students are then taken to wrap up at Khan Academy, where mastery is demanded. They must perform the same skills required in the problem five times in a row to complete this task. When they are done they could help a struggling straggler.**Student finally take an exit poll to indicate their level of understanding at the end of the lesson so you can know if you've been a success. If a student has struggled you may assign them a lecture video to watch on Khan Academy to brush up on their skills. See my Resources by topic for videos that go with each lesson.**__EXIT POLL -__**Your done and credits are given as well as places to find more information, like this site.**__THANK YOU -__If you have further questions please CONTACT ME
