Students have a chance to be creative and do math at the same time!
This is one activity that students really enjoy. GREAT engagement even from reluctant students.
Students create an imaginary creature then chart its population growth in the first activity and the decline in the second activity. Can be completed in one 90 minute class period or it can be split over 2 days. Great end of unit project or formative assessment. This activity is aligned with common core standards for math 1 and algebra. I have included instructions on how I complete the activity along with some helpful tips on managing the activity.
