Our interactives are designed to be flexible to meet a variety of instructional goals. Below are some examples of ways to integrate our interactives with instruction to engage students inside and outside of the classroom.
Online homework: You can assign questions about an interactive as homework so that students are prepared to apply the concept in class. Many of our interactives enable students to discover relationships before formal instruction on the topic.
Clicker questions: You can project an interactive during a lecture and ask students your own prediction question. You can collect student responses and then use the interactive to show students the result and facilitate a classroom discussion.
- In-class activity: You can have students work in pairs during class to collect and analyze data from an interactive. You can ask students to explain their reasoning and give students an opportunity to practice scientific writing skills.
