Beating the Brain Drain through Computing - By Lumos Learning

00:00 good morning and welcome to our second student workshop ,
00:04 beating the brain drain through computing . We are very
00:08 excited that you have joined us this morning . My
00:12 name is Marissa Adam , and I am the director
00:15 of curriculum for limos learning . I will be serving
00:19 as one of our facilitators for our time together today
00:22 , and it's my pleasure to introduce our other facilitator
00:25 , Mr Eric Gibson Johnson . He is one of
00:28 the teachers here at limos learning and is excited to
00:31 also be here with us . As Mrs Adams said
00:37 , we are excited that you are joining us today
00:40 as we spend some time discussing what exactly the brain
00:44 drain is the best way to use math to avoid
00:47 the dream and some practical , quick tips that you
00:50 can use to help you this summer . I know
00:55 that some of you were with us last month as
00:58 we explored the summer brain drain and language arts ,
01:01 and we're excited that you're back with us today because
01:05 you were here before . I thought I would take
01:07 a moment and see if any of you remember what
01:10 exactly the brain drain is . So if you remember
01:15 anything about summer academic learning , loss for the brain
01:18 drain , as we called it . Raise your hand
01:20 and I will a mute your line . Or you
01:23 can type your response into the chat box and I
01:26 can share it from there . We'll give a minute
01:31 to see if anybody raises her hands . Okay ,
01:32 we have one . I'm going to go ahead and
01:34 unused this line . It means you can lose learning
01:39 if you do not practice . Excellent answer . That's
01:43 exactly what it means . Um , thank you for
01:46 the response . Does anybody else have anything else to
01:48 include ? You can meet your hand or you can
01:51 type your answer into the chat box . Okay ,
01:57 great . Well , now , let's take a look
01:59 at the official definition . Studies show that if you
02:05 take a standardized test at the end of the school
02:07 year and then you repeat that same test when you
02:10 return in the fall , you will often lose about
02:12 4 to 6 weeks . Fourth of learning . So
02:16 , in other words , you will miss more questions
02:19 in the fall than you would have in the spring
02:21 . This loss is commonly referred to as the summer
02:24 slide . This fight is what we call the brain
02:27 drain , and it's important to understand what it is
02:30 , so you can better understand how to avoid it
02:34 . Let's look at some more information , specifically about
02:37 math , to see what the brain drain causes there
02:44 . We know that math is math , addition ,
02:47 subtraction , multiplication division . Each of those words mean
02:52 something different to everyone . For some , it's fun
02:55 and exciting . For others , it's about memorizing and
02:59 boring numbers . But math doesn't have to be just
03:03 about memorization or simply solving problems and knowing formulas .
03:08 It's in the everyday world around you . And just
03:11 by having fun and going through daily routines , fun
03:14 activities and trying new things , you can keep your
03:18 brain active with a little math practice and not even
03:22 realize you're always doing it . The first way that
03:28 you can keep your brain sharp is by looking at
03:30 the world around you and finding ways to include math
03:33 . Now , Mrs Adams just said , we're not
03:35 talking about answering questions and workbooks or practicing flashcards .
03:40 We're thinking of fun , practical ways to practice in
03:43 your daily life . So having some fun this summer
03:47 with being in charge of family projects suggest some kind
03:50 of a project to complete with your parents or grandparents
03:54 decide on an area that you want to plant some
03:56 new bushes , or maybe a small home project you
03:59 can work on together . You can help design the
04:01 project . Maybe research some of the plants that you
04:05 want to put outside or the best way to build
04:07 the project . Then you're gonna make a shopping list
04:10 , making sure you determine the correct amount of supplies
04:12 you need , how much space it's going to take
04:15 up , and without even realizing it . You're going
04:18 to have used some basic math calculations and geometry to
04:23 go through and complete the project . You can also
04:27 find math in shopping for groceries or while doing some
04:31 back to school supply shopping for each item that goes
04:35 into the cart . Estimate how much it will be
04:38 and keep a running estimation of the total cost .
04:41 Maybe even make it a competition before you go estimating
04:45 what your total bill will be and see who comes
04:48 the closest or for an added challenge . You can
04:52 even try to compete to see who can determine the
04:55 correct total amount of tax that will be needed and
04:59 a final mental game to play . While shopping is
05:02 to determine the change you should receive when you're paying
05:05 with cash . Not only is this a good skill
05:08 to practice , more importantly , it will help you
05:11 make sure you're getting the correct amount of money you
05:16 can even use everyday math if you're doing any traveling
05:19 this summer , and there are many fun ways to
05:22 do this , traveling requires money and someone has to
05:25 be in charge of the budget . You can volunteer
05:28 to be the family accountant , make a budget for
05:31 the trip and keep all of your receipts , tally
05:34 up the cost of the trip and even tried to
05:36 break it up by category . Food , fun hotels
05:40 , gas . Those are just a few of the
05:42 categories you include . For those of you that might
05:45 be looking for even more of a challenge , you
05:47 can calculate what percentage of your budget has been spent
05:51 in each category . That you uh , chosen and
05:54 created for your budget and traveling by car also gives
06:00 you many other opportunities as well . Using the car
06:04 odometer to calculate how far you travel for an additional
06:08 challenge , you can see if you can calculate how
06:11 much guess you've used as well as how many miles
06:15 you driven on one gallon of gas . But summer
06:21 is also a great time to learn a new map
06:24 skill , particularly one that's a useful life skill .
06:28 And one of the best examples of this is tracking
06:31 spending . Some of you might consider this to be
06:34 the same as balancing a checkbook . Many of you
06:38 might have your own checking account , or you might
06:40 be getting one soon . But more importantly than that
06:43 some of you earn money on a regular basis for
06:46 chores or jobs around the house , or you receive
06:51 money as gifts . Learning to balance and track that
06:55 money is important for many , though both adults and
06:58 kids alike . The idea of balancing a checkbook or
07:01 tracking money is sometimes considered to be an outdated activity
07:05 because you can do so much on the computer and
07:08 online . But this skill is crucial to successfully managing
07:11 your money as you get older , so we're going
07:14 to take a look and take the time to practice
07:16 with that . Today , you can use this skill
07:19 to serve as a family accountant like we just talked
07:22 about or to track your own saving and spending .
07:25 You don't have to have a checking account to do
07:27 it . So as we go through and we look
07:31 at this activity , what are the key elements that
07:34 we need to know about in order to do this
07:37 ? Really , this skill is fairly simple . You
07:39 need to know the date that you spent the money
07:42 or you put the money in the event where the
07:48 money went and the amount that was a deposit ,
07:51 meaning that you put money in or withdrawal , that
07:54 you had to take money out of your account .
07:57 Now we're gonna go back here , and we're going
08:00 to practice these skills as well as keeping that running
08:03 balance so we know how much that we have .
08:06 At the end of the day , there are many
08:09 ways you can learn to track your spending , but
08:12 one of the easiest is a spreadsheet activity , which
08:15 we're going to work through here in the spreadsheet above
08:18 . You see , the headings are the same key
08:21 elements . We just talked about the day , the
08:24 event description and the balance . The last day on
08:29 this sheet is March 31st , and you can see
08:32 the amount that John Doe , who is our student
08:35 here . John Doe currently has and his balance is
08:40 $729.50 . He's been working a lot , and he
08:45 has received a lot of birthday money . So let's
08:48 see what happens when he starts making more money and
08:52 spending his money to Mr Johnson . Okay , So
08:58 the first activity John went through and he bought some
09:01 candy and a magazine at Miller's Pharmacy , so he
09:06 ended up writing them a check , which was check
09:08 number 374 and he spent $16 . Now he did
09:15 this on April 26 . So the first thing that
09:20 we're going to do here is we're going to take
09:22 and we're going to put in the date of April
09:26 26 and for our event . That's going to be
09:32 our check number . So the event changes based on
09:36 what we have here , and since we're writing a
09:37 check , we're going to put check number 3 74
09:40 and the description is who did we give the money
09:43 ? Pubes . Well , he had to give the
09:44 money to Miller Pharmacy since he went through , and
09:49 he gave them $16 . We have to determine .
09:52 Is this money going to be a deposit Or is
09:55 it going to be a withdrawal since he went through
09:59 ? And in this particular situation , he spent the
10:03 money he's taking out of his account . So that's
10:07 $16 becomes a withdrawal . And once we determine that
10:11 he's spending that $16 we have to go through and
10:14 come up with the new balance . Since we spent
10:17 that money , that means it's going away from our
10:19 account . So we have to subtract $16 from our
10:22 our current balance of the 7 29 50 which leaves
10:27 us with the balance of $713.50 now . On May
10:37 1st , he deposited some money in his account of
10:45 $300 . So what ended up happening was in April
10:50 . John was a very busy young man . He
10:52 went through and he mode six lawns and he got
10:55 paid $50 each for each one of those lawns .
10:58 So he got a total of $300 for going through
11:01 and milling all those lines . So once again ,
11:05 we need to go back through . We need to
11:07 take a look at each one of these categories and
11:09 decide what information is going to go where so under
11:13 the date , we can see that it's May 1st
11:15 and May is the fifth month . So that would
11:17 be 51 and he actually got paid . So this
11:24 time the event is not going to be a chest
11:25 number . We're going to let them know that he
11:27 got paid this money . And where did the money
11:31 come from ? Well , since he was mowing lawn
11:35 , we're going to go in and we're going to
11:37 put the description of ongoing this time he got $300
11:43 which was the pay that he got . So he's
11:47 not giving money away . He's actually getting the money
11:50 for this . So that means we're going to put
11:52 that $300 as a deposit because this money is going
11:56 to go into his account because the money is going
12:01 into the account . We're going to add that back
12:04 to the previous balance . So we now have a
12:07 grand total of 1000 $13 and 50 cents so we
12:15 can see John is going through and earning some really
12:19 good money here . By going through and keeping track
12:23 of everything here . He knows exactly what he has
12:28 Now . We've done the first two events together here
12:30 , So we're going to go through . And this
12:32 is where you're going to have the opportunity to see
12:34 if you can complete this next part on your own
12:37 . So on this next event that he has on
12:40 May 2nd , he paid $136.75 cash to Gamestop for
12:49 the video game . He got to new games ,
12:55 and the total cost for that was the $136.75 .
13:00 So I'm going to step back , and I'm going
13:03 to see if you can tell me what we need
13:04 to do . Who can tell me what happens first
13:08 , raise your hand and Mrs Adams will unmute you
13:11 on your mic . Or you can type your answer
13:13 into into the chat and she can read it .
13:17 So the first thing that we have to do is
13:19 what you have to put 5 to 14 in the
13:25 date box . Excellent . The first thing that we're
13:29 going to go through we're going to do is we're
13:30 going to put in 5 to 14 because this happened
13:35 on May 2nd . All right , so what was
13:39 the event ? Then again , you can raise your
13:46 hand or you can type your answer into the chat
13:49 box and it will pop up . We have our
13:51 date first late , someone type their answer in for
13:57 the event , and the event is going to be
14:01 hash correct because he went through . And this time
14:05 John paid cash . So this way easy . This
14:10 way we can see . Under that event , we
14:13 can take care of everything that we need to see
14:16 there so we can see that it's cash or check
14:20 or whether he's getting paid for something . Now ,
14:23 who did he go through and pay cash to ?
14:27 So he went shopping . And where did he go
14:29 ? Shopping at again ? Island Mute your line .
14:34 He went to Gamestop . He did go to Gamestop
14:38 Very good . And when he went to Gamestop ,
14:41 I see somebody else has already jumped in on the
14:43 the chat box there , Mrs Adams , for the
14:46 total . So they went through , and John spent
14:49 $136.75 . Now he's spending that Which one of those
14:57 two columns are we going to put that in ?
15:04 You're going to put it in withdrawal . Very good
15:07 . Why are we going to put it withdrawal .
15:09 How do we know that it's not a deposit ?
15:14 Because he spent the money or he subtracted it ?
15:18 He did not add it . That is fantastic and
15:21 exactly correct . So as John is going through and
15:24 spending that money , he's going to go through and
15:26 put that in the withdrawal , and you actually answered
15:29 our last question as to our my last question as
15:32 to how we're going to go through and get that
15:33 new balance because you said he was subtracting it out
15:38 . So at Gamestop he had a withdrawal of $136
15:42 and 75 cents . And then when we go back
15:47 through and we subtract that to get to the balance
15:51 , he's going to have a grand total of $876
15:56 and 75 cents left over . Very good . Excellent
16:03 . Yes , very . I'm fantastic as we go
16:07 through , and we take a look at this .
16:08 Tracking your money is an important skill to learn even
16:12 before you really have a paying job or a checkbook
16:15 . It's always important to know how much money you
16:17 have , where it's going and what's happening with it
16:21 , and It's a way that you can stay engaged
16:23 with math over the summer and avoid the brain drain
16:26 . It can be a real skill that you practice
16:28 now , or you can make up your own scenarios
16:31 or have your parents make them up and do tracking
16:33 in a spreadsheet or even on a printed sheet of
16:36 paper . But this is a perfect way for you
16:39 to go through and keep track of your allowances that
16:42 you're getting your birthday money wherever it is that you're
16:45 going through and you're getting your money and spending your
16:49 money . This gives you an exact way to go
16:51 through and keep track of it without having to bug
16:54 Mom and dad all the time To find out how
16:56 much money you have , you can do it on
16:58 your own , and we definitely want to thank those
17:02 of you who are engaged . We had some of
17:04 you that we're raising your hands and answering the questions
17:06 and some of you that we're typing your answers in
17:08 the chat . So we really , really appreciate that
17:12 . But learning a new skill and looking at the
17:17 world around you also are not the only way that
17:19 you can continue to stay engaged . Another great thing
17:22 to do with friends and your family is to play
17:25 a game . And games can be a great way
17:28 to build mass skills , even if you're not feeling
17:31 like you're doing math , the games that you see
17:35 here on the screen are all games that will challenge
17:37 your thinking . Increase your problem solving and help you
17:42 practice map skills in fun ways . In fact ,
17:45 we play many of these games in our family .
17:47 Now . Cubans really , really helps you with your
17:51 visual dexterity . You have to try to match the
17:54 image that you see on the card with the small
17:56 little cubes , which also will help you with geometry
17:59 and spatial reasoning . Bob . It will help you
18:03 with some of your problem solving skills following directions ,
18:07 doing things in sequence . Monopoly . Obviously , it's
18:10 going to help you with money with counting with addition
18:13 and subtraction . You're buying properties . Um , and
18:17 critical and block . It's are also great ones that
18:19 will help you figure out how to solve problems visually
18:23 . Think about critical thinking and problem solving before we
18:27 go on , though I'd love to see if any
18:29 of you have any other math games that you can
18:32 think of , um , games that you play with
18:35 your friends , board games , card games that you
18:38 can play . You can raise your hand and I
18:41 commute your line . Or you can type your answer
18:44 into check . Oh , great . I'm gonna go
18:50 ahead and unused your line . Domino's Well , that's
18:54 an interesting one . Mr Johnson and I didn't talk
18:56 about that , But , yes , dominoes . You
18:58 can definitely play together with friends and family . But
19:04 again , these are great ways to help you practice
19:05 math skills in fun ways . But the one thing
19:12 that we've learned nowadays is that games are not limited
19:17 to board games or just card games . There are
19:20 literally hundreds of apps and video games that can be
19:23 played regularly that also promote math skills . Searching in
19:27 places like Google Education play and searching for education in
19:32 the iTunes store is a great place to begin sorting
19:35 them out . And by understanding these types of apps
19:38 , you can educate your parents on them , too
19:42 . And the best part about a lot of these
19:44 apps is you can go through and you can find
19:47 free app in both the APP store and on Google
19:51 play better the educational app and then get your parents'
19:55 permission so you don't have to pay to get them
19:58 . And then once you're going through and you learn
20:00 how to do that , you can challenge your parents
20:02 and educate your parents on those two . One app
20:08 that is considered to be a favorite among students and
20:11 is also free is 2048 in this number puzzle game
20:17 . The object is the swipe tiles and arrange them
20:21 so that two tiles with the same number touch working
20:26 to make a combination of 2048 . This app strengthens
20:31 fast facts for addition and subtraction . The goal of
20:40 this next step , Nozomu , is to get down
20:44 to zero . And so , using your fast facts
20:48 , you swipe and move tiles in a combination so
20:51 that the answer equals zero . So as we go
20:55 through and we look at that yellow line that we
20:57 have , there were going from 7 to 1 ,
21:00 which is six , and then we knock out those
21:02 zeros , which doesn't change anything , and then we
21:05 go to the six and six minus 60 So in
21:08 order we go through , we subtract numbers to go
21:12 back through and to get down to zero . So
21:15 with the examples that we have six plus five equals
21:18 11 , so we would start with the 11 .
21:20 We could subtract the six and then subtract the five
21:24 11 minus two equals nine . We subtract nine off
21:27 again and we end up at zero . And so
21:30 all of those tiles that come in that combination would
21:34 end up being taken off because of the fact that
21:36 they all total out to zero . And this third
21:45 app , Tanzania is actually considered to be a favorite
21:49 of teachers and educators . In this fun game ,
21:52 you will work on spatial reasoning and problem solving to
21:56 use all seven pieces of the tan Graham and create
22:00 the image that you select . Your goal is to
22:03 create the image with all those pieces without overlapping or
22:07 any camping as we go through and we look at
22:10 the ones that are on the screen . They show
22:12 us here where each one of the pieces go .
22:15 But what you will normally see when you're working in
22:17 this app is all of those are going to be
22:19 shaded in . And they're all going to be black
22:22 so that you can't tell where each piece goes ,
22:25 and the more the further along that you go ,
22:29 the more difficult they're going to become . And the
22:31 harder it's going to be more challenging it is to
22:34 figure out where those go . But spatial reasoning is
22:37 one of those skills that is very , very important
22:40 to have as you're moving along through geometry . But
22:44 the big key to this one is that there cannot
22:46 be any overlapping or any gap between the pieces .
22:52 And as Mr Johnson mentioned a moment ago , though
22:55 , there are these are only three of hundreds of
22:58 educational apps . There are many , many different types
23:02 of apps out there for smartphones and tablets . Whether
23:05 you have an android , apple or Windows stone ,
23:08 you simply have to search to find apps that are
23:11 user friendly and student friendly and academic or education oriented
23:18 . For android devices , Google has education play that
23:22 lifts . Asked that that only means specific academic criteria
23:28 . This is a great place to begin your search
23:30 because many of the apps will be available on other
23:33 platforms . My family typically uses apple devices , but
23:37 I will often do my research on this education site
23:41 first and then finally app . I want and then
23:44 go and search for it in the APP store for
23:46 iTunes , you can search by paid or free or
23:52 put in a specific search term like See CSS if
23:56 you want to find an app related to the common
23:58 core or math . If you're looking for a app
24:02 , that would be a fun masking . A good
24:05 example of being able to search like this is the
24:07 limo's learning step up app that lets kids play math
24:11 and L A , which is the English language .
24:14 Our quiz games on any smart device . It's listed
24:18 at number three on the Google Education Play site .
24:20 When you search for a common core and then like
24:23 I mentioned , you can go and you can find
24:24 it on any other device . There has been so
24:32 much information today , but as we get ready to
24:35 close , we like to sum it up and leave
24:38 you with three key principle tips . When it comes
24:41 to beating the brain , drain through computing and maths
24:46 . First we need to go back through , and
24:51 you need to start today . The longer you wait
24:54 , the more you're going to lose . Second ,
24:58 take three new things we've talked about in this webinar
25:01 and begin using them , whether it is the apps
25:05 and searching through the appstore , whether it's the ,
25:08 uh , using your math by estimating whatever it is
25:13 , pick three and use it . And finally and
25:16 most importantly , do not begin to wait . Using
25:20 these skills in your summer . It can start tonight
25:23 in your house , and you want to make sure
25:25 that you go through and you practice every day .
25:30 It is not one of those things that you want
25:32 to do . Uh oh , I've got some time
25:34 . I'll do it . No , You want to
25:36 set some time aside every day and just make sure
25:38 you're doing little practices as you go through and start
25:43 tonight . So as we go through and we're wrapping
25:49 up here , are there any questions from anything that
25:53 we have discussed today ? You can raise your hands
25:58 and Miss Adams Willen mute , or you can go
26:01 through and you can type your question into the chat
26:03 bar and we'll read those off . So again ,
26:09 what ? This minute and some people are typing their
26:12 questions and now , um , we'll give you a
26:15 second to see if you have any ideas . I'll
26:23 meet your line . What are the best things that
26:30 you can do with percent . That's a really good
26:36 question . The best thing that you can do with
26:39 percent is make sure first of all , that when
26:43 you're calculating percentages that they add up to 100 because
26:47 we all know that percent means out of 100 .
26:50 But you can go back through . And if you're
26:53 looking for a challenge , you can convert them into
26:56 decimals . You can make them fractions by putting them
26:59 over 100 seeing if you can go through them and
27:02 simplify them all the way down . If you're in
27:05 the store and you're looking at , um , you
27:07 know , school supplies that are 25% off , see
27:12 if you can go back through and estimate what that
27:14 25% is gonna be and use that to go back
27:18 and work on , um , calculating that final prices
27:21 you're working through it . Percent also come through when
27:25 you're going through and you're doing your budget . You
27:28 can very easily take the amount that you're spending and
27:31 put it over that total amount , and you can
27:34 figure out what percent of the total budget that you're
27:37 using on your trip is related to food or is
27:40 being used on on the gas . And that turns
27:44 into circle graphs and all kinds of different things that
27:47 you're gonna be working on as you're moving through the
27:49 map . So the fact that you're starting to work
27:51 with percent now is really going to help you out
27:55 later on in the future as you're moving through Mass
27:57 because they never go away , they're always there .
28:00 But one of the biggest thing with percent is to
28:03 look at those What is this percent of the death
28:06 small . And what is the percentage of fraction ?
28:09 And the reason I say that is because depending upon
28:11 what kind of problem you're working on , sometimes the
28:14 fractional , uh , portion is the easier part to
28:18 you . Sometimes you want to use the decimal ,
28:21 so if you can go back through and you can
28:24 remind yourself and practice each day with changing those percent
28:29 back and forth , then you're going to have a
28:32 big head start on a lot of your classmates .
28:34 And it's going to be a lot easier when you
28:36 start working with persons . That was an excellent question
28:41 . Thank you so much . I also see when
28:44 they come up in chat . How do you make
28:46 sure the apps are safe to play ? And that
28:50 is also an excellent question , particularly , you know
28:53 , with with everything that can happen when you're on
28:55 smart devices , The very first thing that I will
28:57 say to that is Make sure that you're talking to
28:59 your parents before you download an app for your phone
29:04 or you download it for your phone , your tablet
29:08 , any other smart devices you're going to be using
29:09 it on . The second thing that I would suggest
29:13 would be using that Google Education Place site that we
29:17 mentioned . Google education has already gone through and done
29:21 a lot of the work for you . They have
29:23 a very strict screening process so that you can make
29:26 sure that truly what you are seeing is a safe
29:29 at that meets education goals . It'll be math related
29:34 or science related or language arts related , and you
29:37 know that you're looking at something that's a pretty safe
29:39 app that you can put on your phone and play
29:42 . Mr Johnson , do you have anything else you
29:43 can add to that ? Maybe the only thing that
29:46 I would say if it's an apple device or anything
29:49 like that , which doesn't have . Maybe it's not
29:53 , for whatever reason , in the Google education section
29:56 , if you can always go online and you can
29:58 search for it . And usually when you go through
30:00 and you do a search , it's going to give
30:02 you the information on it so that you can see
30:05 , you know , is this really good ? How
30:06 is this rated ? Um , what do other people
30:10 think that have used this app as well ? So
30:13 there's lots of information out there . You just have
30:15 to make sure that you know , you and your
30:18 parents are talking , and you and your parents are
30:20 looking into it so that you can make sure that
30:24 it's the best app for you , and it's going
30:25 to do exactly what you wanted to do . But
30:30 your parents working with you were definitely the key .
30:36 Do you see any other questions that have come up
30:39 ? The only other question I saw that came up
30:41 was along the same lines of , um , you
30:45 know , how do we where do we get the
30:47 apps to make sure that they work ? Just always
30:49 make sure that your parents are part of that .
30:51 As you go through and you're looking at those apps
30:57 . Well , great . We would definitely like to
30:59 thank Sorry . Go ahead , Mrs Johnson . I'm
31:02 going to say if there's no more questions , I
31:04 was going to turn it back over to you for
31:05 a few other pieces of information . Well , and
31:09 I definitely want to thank you , Mr Johnson ,
31:11 for taking your time and being here with us today
31:13 . And we want to thank all of our students
31:15 who joined us this morning . And students we would
31:18 definitely like to invite you and Mr Johnson . Of
31:20 course , if you have time as well as Miss
31:23 Lyons and I explore how to avoid the brain drain
31:27 by warming up for a great school year next month
31:31 on August 26th at 11 a.m. Eastern . And again
31:35 , we just want to thank each of you for
31:36 being here with us today and for helping us have
31:38 a great webinar . I want to let you have
31:41 her for asking me to come and help with this
31:43 today . It has been fantastic and wonderful . Well
31:49 , y'all enjoy your summer and we will see you
31:51 back here next month as we look at warming up
31:54 for a great school year


Here are a few amazing techniques that help you beat the summer brain drain


Beating the Brain Drain through Computing is a free educational video by Lumos Learning.It helps students in grades 8 practice the following standards 8.SP.1,8.SP.2,8.SP.3.

This page not only allows students and teachers view Beating the Brain Drain through Computing but also find engaging Sample Questions, Apps, Pins, Worksheets, Books related to the following topics.

1. 8.SP.1 : Construct and interpret scatter plots for bivariate measurement data to investigate patterns of association between two quantities. Describe patterns such as clustering, outliers, positive or negative association, linear association, and nonlinear association..

2. 8.SP.2 : Know that straight lines are widely used to model relationships between two quantitative variables. For scatter plots that suggest a linear association, informally fit a straight line, and informally assess the model fit by judging the closeness of the data points to the line..

3. 8.SP.3 : Use the equation of a linear model to solve problems in the context of bivariate measurement data, interpreting the slope and intercept. For example, in a linear model for a biology experiment, interpret a slope of 1.5 cm/hr as meaning that an additional hour of sunlight each day is associated with an additional 1.5 cm in mature plant height..
