Mariel Stein  (TpT Seller) re: Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL? (Middle School MATH Project)
Hey thanks so much your answer was very helpful! Do you by any chance have an example of a daily plan you used with this lesson? The resources are great I'm just a little lost on how to implement this on a day-to-day basis.

I'm definitely going to use it!!!

I don't have a daily plan to share. Once I introduce the project, the kids kinda take over. I give limited amounts of time in class to complete it, but I listen to the students interactions or questions because I may need to re-teach a concept during bellwork. I always have several examples to show the students and that helps.

Mariel Stein  (TpT Seller) re: Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL? (Middle School MATH Project)
Hey I just downloaded your project and it looks SO COOL! I teach all boys for math and they're obsessed with football but so bored with math so I'm INCREDIBLY EXCITED to use this in my classroom! I have a few questions though.

1) The project addresses multiple standards in math - while I have taught a good portion of these standards, there are some that I haven't. Do I need to explicitly teach these standards before starting the project?

2) How long should I block out for this project? How much time per day and how much time overall? My math block is 1.5-2 hours (depending on the day) and I have two months left in the school year so I'm trying to long-term plan now.

Thank you for this great project!!!

VERY COOL!!
1) Sometimes I teach the concepts before the project, and sometimes I teach a concept then add a layer to the project. I like both ways. If I want the students to be more independent, I teach before then introduce the entire project. I've had a lot of success doing it in layers though- it tends to slow down the students, but the overall project is usually better.
2) When I first introduce the project it takes a while to show examples and talk about how to make up a team, budgeting, etc. I teach 50 minute periods so the introduction takes at least that long. After the kids get the jist of the project, I allow about 20-30 minutes for several days. Sometimes it takes a week sometimes two. I teach a wide range of students with varying abilities - it's different every year. One thing remains the same - the kids (especially boys) get SUPER excited about it and talk about it all year! I had a group of ELL students ask to do soccer last year and all the kids thought it was cool.

THANKS and ENJOY!

Hello! I've re-uploaded the word file. I can change it to a pdf and send it to you directly if this doesn't work. I used the word file so that the document may be revised to fit your needs. Please let me know if this doesn't fix it. THANKS so much!!

I purchased your math basketball review powerpoint but am unable to successfully download it to my computer. I own Microsoft Office 2010, so the format of the file should not be a problem. Any ideas so that I can make use of the file I purchased?

Oh no!!! I'll look into the problem. You're the first to encounter an issue that I know of. I will let you know what I find out! I do not use office 2010, but as you indicated this shouldn't be a problem. I'll try and upload again to be sure. THANKS! (I'm with students all day so it may take a little time - sorry!)

mellwanger re: Taking Stock in the Stock Market! (MATH and So Much More!)
Does this teach about the stock market realistically? I teach 10th grade econ and want them to learn about the market more than math skills..

Thanks,

I use this with my 7th and 8th grade math students. It touches on basic ideas, but it really is a fun way to introduce the stock market to kids that have no prior information. I hope this helps. Thank you.

enar222 re: "Lollipop" STATISTICS
Hi, I needa lesson on data statistics and anaylsis.I was wondering if you could tell me if this would be of good use.

COOL Algebra  (TpT Seller)
This lesson is more about the collection of data than the analysis. The students create a frequency table then use the collected data to create a histogram. If you are looking for more analysis, it would have to be added. I hope this helps.

I'm very NEW at this! I'm learning how to price things. This is what I consider a list of ideas, good information, but did not take much of my time to compile. Thank you for the question - I do undervalue my work sometimes. :)

Hi Betty,

Thanks for rating "The Big Picture"! It is a work that is near and dear to my heart, so I am glad that somebody else likes it, too!

I see that you are an engineer-turned-educator - so am I! I started following you yesterday!

Take Care,

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching mathematics, international studies, and media design since 1998 in an urban district located in the southeast region of the USA. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as an electrical engineer for several years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have a laid back approach to math. My goals are to instill an appreciation of mathematics, and to show a connection to the "real-world". With my engineering background, I am very much pro TECHNOLOGY.
