Names School Title Abstract
Emily Rogers, Sarah Scanlan, Julia Stapleton  Asbury University Teaching Angles of Polygons Using Geometer’s Sketchpad Our poster will include a detailed tutorial introducing Geometer’s Sketchpad; it will cover the most common functions, how to implement sketchpad in the classroom, and available online sources. At our professional development presentation, we demonstrated how to create basic points, lines, and shapes. Then, we implemented each of those into a class lesson. Our poster reflects our PD presentation and how each basic skill can be combined to create a seamless understanding of angles of polygons.
Cam Davis, Hailey Ramey, Keith Jessee Asbury University Teaching Triangle Theorems Using GSP This poster presentation will include the investigation of triangles. Geometer’s Sketchpad was used to explore several theorems including the sum of interior angles, base angles on an isosceles triangle, and the mid-segment theorem. We will consider relationships between angles involved in two parallel lines and a transversal with the interior angles of a triangle. A thorough look at the properties of an isosceles triangle will be next. Finally, we will end with the construction of a mid-segment in a triangle and probe possibilities and relationships that can be true for all triangles.
Sabrina Spillman, Kelsey Schmiade Eastern Kentucky University Task Rotations The use of Task Rotations is an ideal strategy for differentiating assessments. The power of student choice embedded into these assessments makes them a motivational mechanism for student success. The Task Rotation Assessment is a great formative assessment as it gives each student four choices (one per category) and asks them to complete one or two of them. The four different learning styles highlighted, include Mastery, Understanding, Interpersonal, and Self-Expressive. These styles will be explained and characteristics/challenges of each revealed. Also, examples of middle grades Math Task Rotation Assessments will be shown.

Comparing Ratios This poster will describe a Launch-Explore-Discuss lesson in which students explore how to compare ratios to determine a most favorable outcome. In the lesson, students compare ratios to decide which table to sit at in order to get the most pizza.

NKY Fame: Incorporating

Advanced Manufacturing Methods in the Classroom

We will discuss our experiences at different advanced manufacturing companies as part of the NKY Fame Externship. These companies are using innovative technology to improve their products and compete on a global scale. We focus on the importance of soft skills in the classroom and in advanced manufacturing companies. We will present lessons we developed to use in the classroom that correlate to the advanced manufacturing field.
