Training Plan for Fibonacci Project

Here is my training plan for my Fibonacci numbers eLearning project.

The part I found hardest was the task analysis, as I am not used to building training plans in this way.

I'm very excited about the project now that I've built the training plan, but I don't know enough about Flash yet to know whether or not I've designed something "do-able."

Exploring Math Online

As my daughters face frustrations at school with learning math, I find myself looking around online for information, strategies, tools and games to help them gain math skills and confidence while retaining their joy and interest in math.

I want them to explore mathematical ideas and concepts, but they also need to practice math facts and gain comfort and fluency in using them.

For my class at UW on eLearning, I have created this blog to post my reflections on readings, my assignments, and my project (teaching Fibonacci numbers to 4th and 5th graders at my daughters' school).

I will also post other resources for exploring math online for those who are interested.
