Limited Capacity seats available

Learn how one teaching team uses a 25' x 25' coordinate plane, painted in the parking lot, and student teamwork to open a world of possibility for their students! By scaling everything up to an exaggerated size, they find the lesson has a profound and lasting impact on the students.
You'll experience an abbreviated version of this lesson for yourself, exploring how using a live-sized coordinate plane can gets your students outside and engaged in exploring concepts from coordinate points to graphing linear equations, as teams rotate, and reflect a large scalene triangle about a giant coordinate plane. Then, explore student artifacts from 8th graders who have completed these lessons, and discuss other lessons you could develop or teach on a life-sized coordinate plane. 

Note: Because this session has limited capacity, it will be offered twice. Please only sign up for one of the two sessions.
