Algebra Aerobics

In April, we had a conversation on Facebook around a picture of drawn stick figures using their arms to show what graphs would look like. I asked Cory if he could create figures and this is what he came up with! They are awesome. Now, knowing I have not done this stuff since college (we don’t do this in Elementary!) please let us know if one needs to be changed!

Tyler Wood was awesome and took these pictures and set them to simple music. I can imagine the possibilities of using this video for into, review, or even just a brain break reminder. Thanks Tyler!

So, our smart cookie Levi Patrick noticed something amiss with one of the characters. This is his solution. My suggestion would be to use it as a teachable moment πŸ™‚ – That’s why I stay in the lower grades πŸ˜‰

How cool is this as a discussion in your classroom! Love this!
