Nowadays, Google Drive means a great opportunity for teachers and students to embrace the 4Cs of 21st century education – communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity.
We found this really inspirational and creative pin-board that illustrates some of the best ways to use technology to your advantage in the classroom:
Lets dive into the features that can boost your productivity and help you seize the day with your students. We promise it is going to be easy and fun. Here are some good practical suggestions on how to use Google Drive in your classroom.
We strongly believe that such technologies will transform the ways we teach, study and work together. That is why The Mathist from now on uses Google Drive to store all your mathematical notes enabling you to organize, share, tag and search through them easily, so you can reach Zen in your classroom. 🙂
We are very proud to present you the new Mathist. It is a real sneak peak into the future, that allows you to easily solve and compute anything you write with a single click!
Here are some examples;
Simplify any expression to speed up problem solving,
Evaluate expressions and get approximate values,
Solve equations and inequalities (with visual representation),
Solve definite and indefinite integrals (with visual representation),
Crunch difficult logarithms,
Find derivatives and much more…
You can do all of this with just one button:
Why is this important?
Have you ever worked on a problem, that is easy to understand, but just requires too much number crunching?– So did we!
We understand that learning a million new things every day as a technology or a science student doesn’t leave too much time for crunching math. And yet in most cases you cannot solve anything without it.
We decided create a solution to this problem with the help of cutting-edge technology.
The Mathist allows you to focus on problem solving and not number crunching, so that you achieve better results at things you are interested in!
The divergence of the harmonic series is the source of many counterintuitive conclusions, such as this one:
Given a collection of identical dominoes, it is clearly possible to stack them at the edge of a table so that they hang over the edge of the table without falling. The fun factis that one can stack them in such a way to make the overhang arbitrarily large, provided there are enough dominoes. 🙂
When writing a note, you may need a character that is not shown on the keyboard. Don’t worry, just find the character that looks the closest to it on the keyboard and hold down on it until the characters suggestion popup shows. Chances are you are going to find what you need to type there.
For example:In order to type the >character, find the = character on the right, just bellow the numeric keyboard, and press long on it to open the character suggestion popup.
