On my second day of Geometry, I had the students up at the boards for #VNPS to learn about points, lines, planes, angles, rays. I read this as they drew and wrote notations. I was going to have them shift and look at others to correct, but we just had the groups correct their own. It was great discussion. I asked them to draw a line, they drew a segment. After we realized it needed arrowheads to be considered a line, I asked them to write the notation. They wrote it with a segment on top. They realized they had to have the arrowheads on this as well. I am hoping the making of mistakes and fixing them along the way will make it stick better than me saying, "This is how you draw a line. This is it's notation." It took longer than I anticipated. I wanted them to return to their seats and then write it in their notes, but instead, I asked them to take out their phones and take a picture and for homework to write it into their notes. They could take a picture of their own group's work or another. It was fun to see the Geometry Paparazzi form around the neatest work and snap pictures.
Here are two examples:
Thanks for reading.
