For this assignment I wanted to look at an area of Math that students in grade 5 find challenging. I decided to look at how to teach the concept of angles in numeracy using the T GEM approach and combine that with coding and art. You can teach students about what angles are but how do you have them apply that knowledge, share it, reflect and adapt. This lesson assumes a basic understanding of Hopscotch which is a free blockly based coding app for ipads. Once they understand the basics of angles they can start to work that into creative play through the creation of Art. Math and Art often go hand in hand with digital creation and I thought this lesson might be a good example of that platform. I created a short guide on wix.com which you can get to here.
