TERC Investigations

As you may know, our TERC Investigations Program includes interactive lessons.  You do not need a Mimio or Smartboard to use these lessons.  If you do not have a Mimio, you can interact with the lesson using your computer mouse or trackpad.  The added bonus to having a Mimio or Smartboard is that your students could come up to the board and perform the interactive actions.

Interactive activities allow you to model various math concepts.  These powerful visual lessons will grab your students’ attention.  Check out this sample.

Explore the Investigations website!  Let me know if you need any help.
