in Math Education Benefits &
Guide Objectives: Why Texas Math Students
Might Benefit From AR Objective 8 groups together the concepts and uses of measurement and similarity found within the TEKS. More videos demonstrating how to use
Google Sketchup in Geometry are available at Google Sketchup alllows students to develop their working knowledge of geometric concepts by creating and modifying 3D structures, both simple and complex. In other words, geometry. Furthermore, Special Education students attain 43% correct on Objective 8 (Lowest of all 10) http://mathforum.org/sketchup/videos.html TAKS Data reveals areas of deficiency Objective 8 is the 2nd Lowest Objective on Exit Level Math TAKS Source: http://www.utdanacenter.org/highered/alg2/downloads/III-StateStandardsandObjectives/III-E-Grade11_TAKSObj.pdf Data

Builds Cross-Curricular Connections ...that's what was shown earlier. Ready to Begin?
Follow These Instructions to Learn How to Develop Your Own AR Manipulatives: Using the software ARSights, we can export our Google Sketchup creations to an Augmented Reality file. http://www.k12mobilelearning.com/?p=781 Low-Cost Solution Create and analyze true-to-life replicas of historical places, human anatomy, and historical events Builds on an open-source community It's Not Drill-and-Kill Why Use AR? Promotes Rigour and Relevancy It's Engaging AR Adds A Whole New Dimension To Learning example of using sketchup to teach geometrySee the full transcript
