1) How can teachers improve instruction of mathematical concepts through mnemonic devices to enhance understanding of students?
-memory enhancing instructional strategy
-types of mnemonics: musical, acronym, and visual imagery
2) How is my webquest going to assist teachers deliver mathematical mnemonics in their curriculum?
-3 youtube videos of me singing (more will be uploaded in the future)
-3 image and 1 acrostic (more will be added in the near future)
-teachers can play and share my mnemonics to their students
3) Why is it that students can learn and recall information from music videos? Would a math music video project help recall and enhance their understanding of mathematical concepts?
-students respond positively to music videos because they leave a lasting impression that embeds images and scenes from the song’s lyrics, which helps them recall the lyrics
-math music video project will be assigned to my Alg. 2 classes this year
-survey will be done by the students to see if they can recall the mathematical concepts presented in the music video
