The Esri Education Outreach team is pleased to announce the release of a sample pack from the forthcoming GeoInquiries™ collection for Mathematics. The sample pack includes the first four activities supporting algebra 1 or geometry instruction with ArcGIS Online. Eleven additional activities will be released over the coming weeks. Topics in the sample pack include: distance and midpoint, linear equations, centers of triangles, and areas of complex figures. Teachers wishing to use the activities are invited to complete the field test survey at http://esriurl.com/GeoInquiryFeedback .
The new mathematics collection is the six geoinquiry collection supporting the mainstream use of ArcGIS Online in schools. Each collection contains 15 content-focused activities. Each activity is based on national curriculum standards, tied to key textbooks, and uses inquiry instruction to teach disciplinary content with ArcGIS Online. All activities and maps are free and licensed under Creative Commons for easy teacher modification. Learn more at http://esri.com/geoinquiries
