Project Title: Blended Learning 6th Grade Mathematics
Learning Innovation Grant Recipient
The goal of the Blended Learning in 6th Grade Mathematics Project in my classroom is to help two groups ofMath Plus (R.T.I.) students develop a deeper understanding of the Common Core Standards by engaging them using multiple types of formative assessments that are technology-based, such as Socrative, Kahoot, Zaption, Chatzy, Discovery Education, and IXL Math. The research question I am seeking to address is whether student mastery of operations with fractions will be obtained by implementing the aforementioned online instructional tools, which will provide individualization of student learning through technology. At the start, mid- and end-points of the Blended Learning in 6th Grade Mathematics Project, Discovery Education Benchmark Assessments will be conducted to determine increases in mathematical achievement with relation to operations with fractions. In addition, IXL and other teacher-created formative assessments will be utilized to determine student mastery of the Common Core Standard (6.NS.A.1).
