Don't you hate when you catch students drawing pictures while you are trying to teach?
Some of the most talented artists to walk the planet have been seated in my classroom. These students would draw endlessly. The only problem was that I did not teach art! I taught math but that did not stop them from drawing. For every one picture that I took from them they were able to create at least two more in its place by the end of the hour. I became frustrated and my students were too. Illustrate 2 Calculate uniquely allows students to draw and learn math at the same time. Each engaging activity invokes cultural pride, entrepreneurship, career options, or humor and allows students to artistically demonstrate their understanding of mathematical concepts
