In this interactive object, learners examine terminology dealing with phonics and whole language and identify the different types of activities that would be seen in a phonics-based or whole language classroom. Part of this activity has audio.
Learners examine how language can interfere with clear communication. They select examples of ambiguity, assuring expressions, doublespeak euphemisms, jargon, emotive content, false implications, meaningless comparisons, and vagueness. In an interactive exercise, learners identify ways to overcome these barriers.
Finding the Lowest Common Denominator for Algebraic Fractions
In this interactive and animated object, learners follow instructions for finding the lowest common denominator for a group of algebraic fractions. Immediate feedback is provided. This activity has audio content.
The target audience of this learning object is trigonometry students who have already learned what a radian is and have already derived the key values of the coordinates associated with common radian units, but now need to practice finding those values on the unit circle. The student does not need to know the definition of the six trig functions to do this activity.
