Product Description

The world is getting smaller, we are preparing our students for a global job market, yet many know little about the world. Do you want to grow globally aware citizens in your math classroom? Would you like students that have an understanding of equivalent fractions and operations? Do both in this meaningful math project that may change the worldview of some in your classroom.

In this 21st Century Math Project, students will use the skills of adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators as well as working with equivalent fractions to solve authentic global problems.

In this 23 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, handout resources for students to use, and an answer key. In all it is three different assignments --

-- In "If the World Were a Village", student will add and subtract fractions to shrink the global population down to 100 people. Afterward, have a class discussion of the most surprising findings. The results of this assignment will likely get students talking.

-- In "More Global Facts", students will use equivalent fractions to get the global statistics to be out of a denominator of 100. This can be used together with the first or separately.

-- In "Microlending", students will have four different people that are attempting to get funded. They use fraction models and will determine how much more they need to raise.

-- In "Microlending Blog Post", students are asked to synthesize what they’ve learned and share with the world.

Optional Make a microloan as a class to an applicant on Kiva.org.
