Khan Academy offers high quality K-12 virtual support for the mathematics classroom. Students can build a personnalized learning plan by creating a math mission. By answering a few problems, Khan Academy will generate a learning plan. Students and teachers can follow this learning plan or choose different different material based on other needs. Students and teachers will be able to review student progress within the Khan Academy system. Students also have the option of adding parent accounts. Parent accounts will allow parents to track student progress just like teachers, but specific to their children.
Walton County School District (WCSD) student and teacher information has already been uploaded to Khan Academy and is currently availble to all WCSD teachers. Students and teachers can access Khan Academy by logging into Clever; a link has been provided below. Students will use their student ID as both the username and password. Teachers will use their e-mail address as the username and Focus password as the password. If teachers are unable to access Clever, be sure to use the "forgot password" option.
After accessing Khan Academy through Clever for the first time, setting up a student account is easy. A quick video and word document have been provided below to assist with this process.
Florida Standards Assessment Aligned Resources
3 Act Math is a great way to engage students and get them actively thinking about real world problems. 3 Act Math refers to three stages in story telling:
Act 1 - The central conflict is introduced. Students become familiar with the problem and begin understanding the parameters.
Act 2 - The students overcome obstacles, look for resources and find new tools. During this phase, students actively problem solve and use learned skills to search for a resolution.
Act 3 - Here, students resolve the conflict and begin thinking about future problems and application.
Problems introduced from 3 Act Math are created and uploaded by math teachers around the Nation. Some lessons include worksheets and videos to assist you in engaging students and guiding them through each activity. Lessons are available for 3rd grade through Geometry in high school. Your students will love these activities!
Students routinely ask, “Why do I need to know this?” Get The Math provides video explanations of how math is used in everyday life with challenge questions to keep them thinking. These videos are most appropriate for secondary mathematics.
