PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Martin Luther King, Jr. Math Project. This mini-project allows middle school students to study influential civil rights leaders from a mathematical perspective. Fifteen task cards center around Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., those who influenced him, and those who he influenced. Students read brief texts about these figures and the events they lived through. In each text, students will pick out a mathematical inequality. They will write the inequality algebraically and graph it on a number line. They will also write about the significance of the numbers historically, culturally, or personally. The students will also have an opportunity to create a mathematical “poem” or picture by writing and decorating an equality about a characteristic, right, or ideal that is important to them.

A teacher guide, an example of a completed project, student instructions, a student project recording page, and 15 task cards are included.

When possible, photos were included on the task cards. If a photo was not available, high quality clipart was used instead.
