What’s your focus for the 2017-2018 school year?

Every year, I choose a focus as I start the school year. My focus for this year is going to be REAL MATH. I want to really show my Algebra students how what they are learning applies to real life.

I took a graduate school class over the summer which was based in STEM. Our final project was to take a course we teach and find at least two activities per unit that were STEM related. I chose Algebra 1.

 

During my research, I find some really great resources. I already knew about Dan Meyer. We will be doing the stacking cups activity within the next two weeks, we are currently in a unit on solving equations.  STACKING CUPS  Activity.

 

I also found some other great activities which are all included in my 29 page pdf. All activities are linked to common core standards and math practices.
