A5. Depending on how you structure things teachers can definitely create opportunities for communication. So many great ideas and strategies can be shared when students have manipulatives as another tool for problem solving.

A4. Is Desmos a manipulative? I think it's more representational but I've loved using the activity center with every concept that involves a graph.

The math cooperation mats are a great tool to use with the manipulatives. Forces the groups to share and agree before asking for help.

A3. Manipulatives give everyone an entry way into the problem. Some students can "do" the problem but don't "get" the manipulative. Manipulatives give everyone a fair shot.

I would love to learn more about SmartSlides. I use Desmos frequently in class for feedback but I like the look of what you are showing here. Thanks.

A3 I have found technology to be a huge asset for engaging reluctant learners. If it seems like a game then their more willing to give it a try.

A2. I try to find a way to engage the students through their natural tendency to be social. If I can get them talking about the topic with each other that's a start.

A6. I tried this with my coteacher. She would introduce vocabulary in her academic seminar class before the kids saw it in class. Helped a lot of kids. Built confidence and allowed them to participate in a new way.
