Here are some Frame, Focus and Follow-up suggestions for using this video in a math lesson.
What is Frame, Focus and Follow-up?
Frame: If you were standing and facing a house across the street from yours and you were asked to turn to the right and face a house farther up the street, how could you describe or quantify that turn? Sometimes when we describe turns or movements we talk about the turn in terms of angles. Can you think of an example where you’ve heard about angles before?
Focus: In this video segment, the CyberSquad has to work together to figure out how much of a turn they need to make. Notice how they use the word angle. What do you think they mean by it here? Also, notice how they manage to record that angle.
Follow Up: How did the CyberSquad figure out how much of a turn to make? Why did they record the turn and how did they do it? If you were going to record a turn where you faced the window in a room and then turned toward the door, how would you do it? How would you record the angle of that turn?
