Looking to EXTEND your thinkers? Does your data shows your students met the target and are ready for more? This packet is filled with activities that not only challenge, but bring the fun and real world connection back into math. QR codes are used throughout, but website links are also included.
Student's activities include:
-Students view real word videos to learn about powers of 10 in powerful and engaging ways. They begin by viewing the "Did you know video," videos about an oil spill and another on the scale of the universe using a popular movie.
-With each video, students are asked to find an amazing number they connect to and then create story problems using the data from the video.
-Students design a creative solution to an oil spill and translate that solution into a mathematical story problem.
-Bonus activities include looking at names for big and small numbers plus creating story problems based on real world powers (Energy- thunderstorm 10^15, Distance- Sun 10^6 or Age-Human Life Time 10^9)
All activities focus on critical thinking and a personal connection to numbers.
