# Flipgrid Basics 💻📱🖥

Are you new to Flipgrid? Get Started Here.

**Here are the basics:** When you set up your account, you’ll first create a **Topic **for your learning community. **Topics** are discussion prompts that your students respond to with short videos. Students then **Record a Response** and post their video or view and **Add a Comment** to one another’s Responses.

**Groups** are a great way for educators to organize multiple Topics and share them with a community of learners. Invite your students to respond to an individual Topic or to access your Group of Topics by sharing the Join Code or Link.

Flipgrid is available **on the web** and via our **iOS** and **Android** apps.

# 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 Discovery 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!

# 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.*
