Product Description
First Day of School "Math Talk" Activity for Middle and High School Students for use in any math class!

This product features an engaging "Math Talk" activity that will have your new students thinking, writing, speaking, and moving on the very first day of school. In this activity, they must choose between 6 different quotes about math from famous figures like Albert Einstein and James Newman and articulate why the quote aligns with their own perspective. I use this lesson every year to set the tone for what I expect in class - it is a great way to gain insight about their current attitudes toward math while they get to know one another with a higher level thinking activity as opposed to the same-old, same-old icebreaker.

Product includes:
- Comprehensive Lesson Plan
- "Math Talk" Sheet for students to fill out
- 6 Corresponding "Math Quote" signs to hang up around your room

Though this lesson plan is ideal for the first day of school, it can be used all year long without modification.
