No problem! Agreed, the examples of number talks that @Dawn_Frier1 shared are exciting! I just edited the original post above and added the clone link for the formative we showed in the webinar in case you want to make a copy of it!

Another way I’m using gF with my math students is to do rough sketches of polynomial functions with a USB mouse pen. It’s a way I can capture digital work from my students in the “Show my Work” question type; convenient for me to look at all of my 36 students at once and get a quicker, more complete picture of if my students understand the concepts.
Here’s a link to the USB mouse pens I purchased on Amazon if you’re interested.

@robert.schwandt Awesome! Do the USB mouse pens work across devices? Are there other things you need to purchase in order to use them?

Just need a computer/chromebook/laptop with access to goFormative! :slight_smile: It’s working great so far! The “penmanship” isn’t great, but you get the idea…

I’m really interested in trying the number talks also.

OMG. I just watched this formative webinar and I was blown away. This is amazing, I really enjoyed the concept of gamification with the scavenger hunt ideas.
