!!!!!Critical Comparison Hotmaths, Khan Academy and Scootle

Assignment (1800 words) During the course of this unit you will be using HOTmaths, Khan Academy, and the Scootle Digital Repository as the source of mathematical content and pedagogical strategies. Your task is to provide a concise yet comprehensive comparison of these three resources. Your essay should clearly demonstrate your familiarity with the three resources, how each is linked to/how well it addresses the Australian Curriculum, how each can be used for teaching and for tracking student progress. (1500 words) Choose one specific resource from each of HOTmaths, Khan Academy, and Scootle, and write a brief overview of the resource and how it will be useful in your teaching. (3 x 100 words = 300 words) Example #1 Practice: Midpoint Formula (Khan Academy) https://www.khanacademy.org/math/geometry-home/analytic-geometry-topic/distance-and- midpoints/e/midpoint_formula In this exercise students must identify the midpoint of a line segment given the coordinates of its endpoints, or the second endpoint from the midpoint and first endpoint. Points may be located in all four quadrants so students must understand positive and negative coordinates, and answers may include decimals. A plot of the given points is provided to assist students with each problem. The exercise addresses ACMNA294 “Find the midpoint and gradient of a line segment on the Cartesian plane” (Year 9). Students must correctly complete three examples before they can move on. (Word count: 99 words) Example #2
