Project Analysis Paper

Here is my project analysis paper in which I bemoan my lack of Flash skill and discuss all the things I would do better if I had time and skill.

And here is the feedback from my classmates on the project.

Final Fibonacci project

Here is the final version (.swf) of my Fibonacci numbers math lesson for 4th/5th graders.

It took way longer than I thought it would. Synchronizing audio and actions was the most time-intensive part. I'm learning now that I could have done it better (and more quickly) other ways, but it was too late for this project.

If you want, you can download the .html file (zipped) as well. I am unable to post the .fla version of the project because even zipped it exceeds maximum size limits on my google site.


Audience: 4th and 5th grade students

Objectives: Students will learn how to:
  • Tell a friend a little about who Fibonacci was
  • Calculate the Fibonacci series
  • Describe what the Golden ratio is
  • Describe what the Golden spiral is
  • Find the Fibonacci series, Golden ratio and Golden spiral in the world

Program design: Linear, self-paced learning module. Navigation is straightforward. Minimal need for instructions or teacher assistance.
