8th Gr. Assignment #24

Learning Goals:

*Use new programs (like web page making interfaces) by trial, error, exploration and seeking online guides.


Overview: You are going to take the presentation slides from Assignments #20, #21 and #22 and publish them by putting them up on a free website of your own.

1. Find a free online web page host. Google the words “free web page” and look at the choices. Many come up, some of the ones students have used in the past are Weebly, Webs, Wix and Google sites. They all have their good points and bad points.

2. Look at this sample web page I made with Webs It’s straightforward and simple. Yours can be more complex. Sample page click here.

3. The minimum I want you to have is a title, (Three Typical Algebra Function Graphs), Images of your slides and a short explanation of each image. You are most likely going to have to take a screenshot of each of your presentation slides to post them to your website, however it is not the only way. Google sites lets you embed presentations.

Once you start making a website, you are going to have to train yourself how to use the web page making interface. They are different for each company. When you sign up, thye usually give you a tour of what tools you have.

4.Things you can put on your website besides the minimum features listed above are definitions of functions, links to websites that explain algebra basics, links to my blog, other images you may find relevant. You can post links to education videos or podcasts as well, but keep them on this topic of graphing functions, please. You can also sometimes make images into page links.

Have some fun and be creative!

You are going to run into some difficulties and will have to keep trying to make things work for you. that’s been my experience, so hang in there, and persevere!

When you are done, email me the URL of your web page at littclass@gmail.com.
