Reinforcing Maths Concepts Using GoAnimate

GoAnimate is a a free online animation tool that I have recently been using with my S1 ICT class, but which I am now looking at as a resource that can support learning in the Maths department.

One approach would be to use GoAnimate to reinforce / revise mathematical concepts which pupils have been learning. The idea would be for pupils to script and create a short animation to explain a mathematical concept, possibly with one character “teaching”  the idea to a second character.

I have created a simple example below to show how this might work in algebra – collecting like terms.

The animation could be produced as an individual or paired project. There are then plenty of peer assessment and review opportunities once the class’s animations are complete.
