The goal was to have students use manipulatives to divide and create slides. They had to use the camera to take photos and type the problems, math sentences and complete answers. Finally, they recorded their voices.

The Benefits of Using LoiLoNote School in this Unit

  • Students are stimulated
  • Students use this tool as a practical, not just theory
  • Students enjoy creating an original story
  • Students show step-by-step how to solve a problem
  • The only problem we had was that we didn’t have enough time to share the results with other students. Next time, we will plan to have a double lesson.

Objectives of the Unit

  • Take photos of manipulatives
  • Type a text (math question)
  • Use a finger to draw lines (show how to divide)
  • Record voice

Six Scenes from the Unit

Next, students arrange the manipulatives on their notebooks. Then, they will take photos of the divided manipulatives, and use the drawing pane to draw the lines to separate groups formed from the whole. Finally, they will record their voices.
