Project of the Month
Each month we will investigate a different project. The problems
presented are based on realistic situations and as such require some
adaptation for use in the classroom. For each project we will spend
the time remaining in the class period discussing topics such as:
- Solutions to the problems posed and methods of solution.
- Mathematics topics that could be taught using this project, and
how the project fits the Standards and Frameworks set by the NCTM and
the state of Massachusetts.
- What modifications are necessary to make the mathematical content
of the project appropriate for various grade levels.
- Where and how the project might be implemented during the school year.
- A Question of Design
- Pizza Party
- Applied Math
