### Description

Black History Month: FOUR Math Activities Bundle!

Get ALL FOUR of my Black History Month Activities: *including KOBE BRYANT*

1. Hidden Figures: Math Activity (Evaluating Expressions

The activity gives a brief description of the three brilliant African-American women at NASA -- Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. This is a great activity for your class after watching the movie "Hidden Figures", in celebration of Black History Month, or in celebration of Women's History Month!

2. Kobe Bryant: Order of Operations Math Activity (Order of Operations)

Students will Simplify numerical expressions to complete the passage about Kobe Bryant. Students will read about his life, his accomplishments, and his success. Students must complete 12 expressions to complete the passage and learn fun facts about Bryant. Students will read a six-paragraph passage about Kobe Bryant's life and accomplishments, fill in apply the order of operations for 12 expressions then fill in the numerical values throughout the reading passage.

3. Walter McAfee: Black History Month Math Activity (Ratios & Proportions)

This is a math activity celebrating Black History Month. The activity gives a brief description of Walter McAfee. McAfee has been credited for calculating the distance from the earth to the moon using radar technology.

Students will then answer 13 questions about outer space including the moon, and the planets in our solar system. Each question is aligned with the 6th grade common core standards about rates, ratios, ratio tables, and unit rate. The activity has a planet theme relating back to McAfee and his discovery about the moon. This activity is a great way to recognize and celebrate Black History Month in your math classroom!

4. Benjamin Banneker: Black History Month Math Project

This is a math project celebrating Black History Month. The project gives a brief description of Benjamin Banneker. Banneker has been credited for making the first clock to be built completely in America.

Students will then create 12 expressions and/or equations to represent each number. This project can easily be used for other grades to create polynomials, and or multiplication/division problems to represent each number. Great way to recognize and celebrate Black History Month in your classroom!

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Write, read, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.
Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + πΉ) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3πΉ; apply the distributive property to the expression 24πΉ + 18πΊ to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4πΉ + 3πΊ); apply properties of operations to πΊ + πΊ + πΊ to produce the equivalent expression 3πΊ.
Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, βThe ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.β βFor every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.β
Understand the concept of a unit rate π’/π£ associated with a ratio π’:π£ with π£ β  0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, βThis recipe has a ratio of 3 cups of flour to 4 cups of sugar, so there is 3/4 cup of flour for each cup of sugar.β βWe paid \$75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of \$5 per hamburger.β
Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.
