Grant — Geometric Constructions
The $750 Grant
Applications should propose a lesson, or lesson sequence, involving geometric constructions using Mathomat instead of a compass. Applicants will be provided with sufficient Mathomat materials to implement their proposed lesson sequence.
- A 3–5-minute video recording of the teacher demonstrating their lesson for student and parent/guardian interest
- A 3-5-minute video recording that can be used by peers for professional development. This recording should address student assessment, sequencing issues and the key variables in the lesson that were important
- A written, 1–2-page, critique of the Mathomat materials for OLM to consider
The $500 run-on Grant
Where the critique from stage one recommends improvements to the Mathomat materials, and these are implemented by OLM, a second grant is offered for scholarship holders to re-design and re-implement their lesson sequence using the enhanced materials. A second set of 2 videos and a written critique are expected as an outcome from this second stage.
Assessment of this application will be by John Lawton and Chris Tisdell.
