Big Ideas Learning has worked with educational technology innovators to marry the very latest in learning technology with the industry-leading mathematics curriculum developed by Dr. Ron Larson and Dr. Laurie Boswell. This Dynamic Technology package is available exclusively with the Big Ideas Math program.
The Dynamic Classroom is an online interactive presentation tool which provides teachers a mechanism for teaching their lesson in a 21st Century classroom. Teachers can present their lessons and can access all of the online resources that supplement every section of the program at point-of-use such as Dynamic Investigations, Real-Life STEM Videos, and Lesson Tutorial Videos.
Dynamic Investigations challenge and motivate students. Teachers and students can integrate these investigations into their discovery learning to interact with the mathematical content in Big Ideas Math Activities and Explorations.
Teachers have access to a number of Dynamic Teaching Tools, including editable online resources, the Answer Presentation Tool, and the Interactive Whiteboard Lesson Library.
Teachers can present any lesson from an interactive whiteboard using Big Ideas Math standard lessons or customizable templates. The lessons are easy to use and are compatible with SMART®, Promethean®, and Mimio® technology.
Developed exclusively for Big Ideas Math, this technology provides teachers and students an intuitive and state-of-the-art tool to help students effectively learn mathematics. The Dynamic Assessment System allows teachers to provide customizable homework directly related to the Big Ideas Math program.
Question types include technology-enhanced items such as drag and drop, graphing, point plotting, multiple select, and fill in the blank using math expressions. Assignments are automatically scored and students have access to immediate multi-tiered remediation, including a free online chat tutor.
The Dynamic Assessment System allows teachers to track and evaluate their students' advancement through the curriculum. Built for ease of use, the tool is available on a wide range of devices.
Every chapter in the Big Ideas Math program contains a Real-Life STEM Video allowing students to further engage with mathematical concepts and relate them to real-life scenarios. Students learn about the Parthenon, natural disasters, solar power, and more!
Two- to three-minute Lesson Tutorial Videos provide video and audio support for every example in the textbook. These are valuable for students who miss a class, need a second explanation, or need extra assistance with a homework assignment. Parents can also utilize the tutorials to stay connected or to provide additional help at home.
Through the Student Dynamic eBook, students not only have access to the complete textbook, but with a data or internet connection, they can also explore robust interactive digital enhancements including English and Spanish audio support, Dynamic Investigations, and Lesson Tutorial Videos.
The Big Ideas Math Videos app provides videos for every Extra Example in all high school programs. The videos can be played in either English or Spanish.
The Big Ideas Math Solutions app provides access to the worked-out solutions of odd exercises in all Big Ideas Math high school programs.
The mnemonic device "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally" has been used for decades to help students remember the mathematical order of operations. Award-winning author Ron Larson, Ph.D. developed the app based on this concept, but the game itself goes far beyond the order of operations. The app is highly customizable and suitable for students in second through eighth grade. The game features four levels of difficulty for each topic included, ranging from Easy to Extreme.
