Synopsis

This project will allow students to have real-life experiences that will enhance math skills beyond memorizing addition and subtraction facts. Activities and learning stations will be presented in four units throughout the school year. Each nine weeks, students will be learning how to solve a problem that will result in a whole class project. The projects will include students working as individuals and in small and large groups. Each project will address real-life experiences that develop problem solving and higher order thinking skills. In addition to math skills, students will also be working on reading, writing, and social studies.
