What is Flipgrid? 💭

Flipgrid is the leading video discussion platform for millions of PreK to PhD educators, students, and families around the world. Flipgrid promotes fun and social learning by giving every student an equal and amplified voice on the Topics you define!


Flipgrid Basics 💻📱🖥

When you set up your account, you’ll first create a Grid for your learning community. Grids are the canvas you will use to post discussion Topics, to which your students will post short video Responses. That’s how they share their voice! Students can then view and Reply to each other’s Responses, infusing your class with a dose of social and emotional learning! Flipgrid is available on the web or via our Windows 10, iOS, or Android apps.

If you’re just getting started, we recommend checking out the Flipgrid Educator Innovation Station. It’s filled with everything you need to become a Flipgrid pro!


Flipgrid in High School Mathematics 📊📏

During In high school Math, students learn reasoning with expressions, equations, and inequalities, interpreting and building functions, and expressing geometric properties. Flipgrid provides a fun and social way to engage your students on any Math lesson! Here are a few ways that Flipgrid can ignite engagement and capture your students’ learning process:

⭐️ Explain geometric formulas and use them to solve problems
⭐️ Show how to extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents
Perform arithmetic operations with complex numbers
Use polynomial identities to solve problems
Create equations to represent relationships between quantities
Prove formulas for sine, cosine, and tangent
Demonstrate relationships between two- and three-dimensional objects

Once you’re ready to create your first discussion Topic, you can dive right in from your Educator Admin or head to the Disco Library for inspiration. Here is a sampling of Mathematics Topics currently available in the Disco Library, all created by your peers and ready to be used with your learners!

🚀 Disco Library: Pre-Algebra

Challenging Problems by Eric Simoncelli: A Topic where students showcase how to solve a challenging problem of their choice.

I use Math everyday in… by Ryan Jolivette: A Topic for showing how math is used all around us.

Systems of Equations by Chris Webb: A Topic where students showcase different methods for solving systems of equations.

🚀 Disco Library: Algebra

Pros and Cons of Vertex Form by Lilly Dang: A Topic debating a quadratic function written in vertex form.

Solving Systems of Inequalities by Myra Alcantar: A Topic having students solve systems of inequalities by graphing.

Inverse of Functions by Lilly Dang: A Topic for students to explain how to find the inverse of functions.

🚀 Disco Library: Geometry

Consider this: ISTE Standards for Students 💡

Knowledge Constructor 3 - Students critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct knowledge, produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others. 3D: Students build knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems, developing ideas and theories and pursuing answers and solutions.

Computational Thinker 5 - Students develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that leverage the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions. 5A: Students formulate problem definitions suited for technology-assisted methods such as data analysis, abstract models and algorithmic thinking in exploring and finding solutions.
