Math lesson for 6th grade for teaching 4 quadrants. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
NEW 3.0 version includes a new NOTES feature: helpful tips for students, self-explanation questions, further information, and even suggestions for extension or family involvement--for every question and example!
Guzinta Math: Quadrants in the Plane focuses on reasoning about the coordinate plane by plotting points and their reflections across the x- and y-axis and across both axes and observing the patterns in the signs of the coordinates in different quadrants. Students also apply the Commutative, Associative, and Distributive Properties for multiplication and addition to simplify addition and multiplication expressions.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching about the 4 quadrants, rational numbers, reflections in the plane, and properties of operations--all key concepts in 6th grade. The app includes detailed instructor notes for each guided practice problem, with notes about extending discussion around each worked example and problem.
Instructors and/or students can turn on and use the new canvas feature (with improved writing functionality) in the app to write all over the screen--take notes, highlight key terms and ideas, show work, etc.
The third module includes an interactive coordinate grapher students can use to explore symmetry on the coordinate plane.
