ALEX Lessons and Podcasts

The Alabama Learning Exchange or ALEX for short is a great resource for teachers as it has a great myriad of lesson plans, games, and podcasts that can be used in a classroom. Being a future math teacher, I was surprised when I first saw the large amount of material on ALEX that is for each of the Math classes.

This is a great example of a Geometry lesson plan that ALEX has supplied. It is a unit that is based on Geometric Symmetries, specifically reflections. This lesson plan fits in with the Alabama Geometry Standards numbers 3, 4, and 5. So it is a key lesson in the early portion of the Geometry class.

This is an awesome podcast done at Childersburg High School that works with a lot of the same Geometry that the lesson plan does, with the big difference that the podcast shows them putting the lesson into application by way Quilts.

ALEX is a great resource for teachers of all disciplines thanks to the wide variety of lesson plans, games, and podcasts that it contains. I know, I only showed two Geometry lessons, but if you don’t believe me, go check it out for yourself.
