In the following I would like to give you some suggestions how to plan and conduct your lessons with realmath.de. I have chosen the classical scheme 'prepare lessons - conduct lessons - follow up lessons'.
» Have fun and success using realmath.de!
» Good lessons want to be prepared in detail.
Every lesson with realmath.de has a workbook entry
Please make sure that every lesson with realmath.de should be comprehensible for parents. Always use a worksheet or workbook entry to document the process and lessons.
Plan the time frame for an exercise
Clearly state the scope for an exercise as you would for a group activity. The scope can be a timed one or tied to achieving a certain number of points. Plan for the fact that students have different learning paces. For stronger students, you can differentiate the lesson with more challenging tasks on the same topic on realmath.de.
Plan collection phasesn
Every completed exercise should be followed by a phase of collecting in class. This interrupts the current work and leaves time for feedback from the students.
Well-set homework always arises from the lesson and should flow seamlessly into the following lesson. For this purpose, similar tasks from the textbook can be used as well as further tasks from realmath.de. If you use tasks from the textbook, this also shows how precisely the realmath.de lessons are planned.
» Do not be disappointed if a well-planned lesson does not succeed!
» The teacher is responsible for the lesson, not a learning platform.
Start of lessons
The beginning of the lesson with realmath.de does not differ from your other lessons. As always, you first discuss the homework or address current questions. Then you should make the structure of the lesson and the course transparent to the students and thus also convey the didactic place of the realmath.de exercise.
Explanation and introduction
In this phase a first workbook entry can be created. The exercise can be discussed in terms of content and form on the basis of task screenshots from realmath.de.
Work of the students with realmath.de
If possible, always have two students working on one digital device. The communication of the students about mathematics is of central importance. Here first problems of understanding can be eliminated. While the students are in an independent and intensive practice phase, you as the teacher have the opportunity to motivate them and accompany their work, their successes or failures. The scoreboard allows you to quickly see how your students are doing. Praise, encourage and support those students who need your professional and pedagogical guidance.
Even an intensive exercise phase should be interrupted before you let the students work on another exercise on realmath.de. Keep in mind that recovery periods are important for students. Allow short debates among the students. You can also use the break to make a workbook entry before the next exercise or to ask for spontaneous feedback. Only then do you initiate another exercise.
End of lesson
Please make sure that your lesson ends on time. At the end, take enough time to summarize the lesson, set the homework and give a preview of the upcoming lesson. With realmath.de or without.
» The bell ends the lesson, not the teacher!
Follow up lessons
» A short and concise summary is enough.
Fits like a glove, I'll do it again
This is probably one of the most beautiful moments in everyday teaching. But remember, different school year, different students. Not everything can be transferred 1:1.
Was okay, but something is still missing
Take your lesson preparation and mark the place where you want to make changes in your next assignment. One sentence is enough.
Did not go as planned
There are often many reasons for this. Also keep in mind that there are students who have less affinity for realmath.de.
