I like that! Hadn't see it before! :)
Me too - very nice!
Nice. Though there is a cool way to search for free math video lessons on google. Just search "topicname tenmarks". First result will get u there.Hope its useful.
stealing that :-) thanks
I like that! It is an extension of a visual clue I had students come up with many years ago. Draw a cursive lower case y on a piece of paper; turn it upside down. The y becomes an h. A visual clue to remember y = # is a horizontal line.
Ooh, I hadn't heard of that y-h connection. It's almost like that math/artist that writes things so they read right-side-up and upside down.Thanks,Ms. Cookie
Do the kids get confused between negative and no?
Good point, Angela. Honestly, I haven't taught the course in a while, so I don't remember. I think it mostly started with the Zero and No slope which kids ALWAYS seem to mix up. They know one or the other is vertical/horizontal but they forget which. So I think that's the link for them. They also know positive and negative are "slanted", so maybe the N helps them remember the negative part.
