Wixie and the Real World of Math: On Top of Denali

Posted by Scott Loomis on Aug 26, 2019 8:42:43 AM

Solving single-step or multistep practical mathematical problems is a theme throughout the Common Core Standards and Virginia's Standards of Learning. These practical problems require computation skills that evolve as the students progress from kindergarten to high school. Although this authentic task can be utilized by students in multiple grades, for fourth graders, the problems typically involve adding, subtracting, and multiplication as well as division with whole numbers.

The On Top of Denali template involves a problem solving strategy that utilizes subtraction as a potential part of a Computation unit taught at the start of the school year. Students are asked to compare the elevation of Denali to the highest points of other states including Oregon, Arkansas, and Virginia to name a few.

Create and share custom curriculum in Wixie

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Aug 1, 2019 11:19:33 AM

Students can use the tools in Wixie to demonstrate their learning on a blank page through a combination of text, images, original artwork, and voice narration. Students can also use pre-made Wixie templates for formative assessments, to support thinking, and to guide project work.

Wixie makes it easy to create and share these templates so you can design customized curriculum for your school or district. When students and teachers log in, their Wixie home page shows a folder with the user’s school name and district in the list on the left. Students and teachers can open these folders to browse and use customized Wixie templates created and shared by educators at their site.

Using the Template libraries to assign student work in Wixie

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jul 22, 2019 8:20:00 AM

Wixie provides students with tools to show what they know and share their ideas through their art, their voice, and their writing.

While students can use a blank Wixie page to get started, they can also use templates in Wixie’s library or those created by your district to apply their learning. These templates are great for formative assessments and for students to complete performance tasks.
