"Before & After" Finding the Mean

Total views: 5050

Thank you for submitting your Finding the Mean lesson for an interactive makeover!! Your content was well thought out and made a great starting place. We took advantage of a variety of Mimio tools to create an engaging and thorough lesson. We took your concepts and expanded upon them first introducing the concept of mean and then building on it with a variety of practice opportunities and then adding the concept of outliers in the same way. In the new lesson students are not only taught the concepts but are then asked to apply them. We have combined suggestions from the Mimio community with Mimio quality instructional strategies that make an interactive lesson great. The result is a quality lesson that utilizes Mimio interactivity and engages students in active learning. Here are some of the ideas that we applied:

  • Focus is on student-interactivity, not teacher interactivity
  • The “After” lesson has learning objectives that are student focused, observable, and measureable.
  • You will find a learning objective on each page of the lesson where students interact.
  • Additional pages were added to build students knowledge and allow for practice.
  • The instruction is sequenced from easy to difficult
  • Students will be fully engaged as they participate and work with you through the learning process.
  • The animations are purposeful allowing the student to check their answers for correctness and provide immediate feedback.

Thank you to all the MimioConnect members who offered their great ideas. You will find many of those ideas embedded in this “After” Lesson!

I was able to open the Before

I was able to open the Before lesson and thought it was great! But I wasn't able to open the after lesson because the software my school has is an older version. Any way you can save it as the older version?

Lesson Created in Mimio 7


I so sorry that you are unable to open this lesson. Unfortunately I created the Lesson in Mimio 7 so I can not open it in Mimio 6. I understand that your district has not updated yet to the newest software version. As soon as you have access to the new software you will be able to use it.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help!

Thank you!
