Product Description
This bulletin board project was designed to be an interactive learning project, although it could be used simply as a math classroom informative bulletin board. The project has much greater value when used interactively to challenge students thinking about math related careers. A website is given which includes multiple links for students to explore careers in the field of math. The bulletin board is attractive and easy to print and assemble, but it contains lots of room to edit and/or personalize the project to fit student/teacher needs and to modify the content or instructional focus. The included table is especially important because it can be edited to include categories such as “Which math practices does this career use? Which strands of math are important for this career? Examples of products related to this career? What kind of math tools does this career utilize? and so on.” The entire project can be edited for different ages and abilities by using alternate clipart, simplifying the wording for lower grades, including higher fields of math for older students, etc. The vocabulary can also be adjusted up or down depending on the age of students and area of math focus. For example in a geometry class you might want to concentrate on careers that utilize geometric shapes in construction and formulae associated with those shapes. Then, again, the project can be used as is with no editing or modifications at all. Students may also contribute to the construction of the bulletin board with teacher guidance. The finished product lends itself well to student presentations around multiple career interests and how math is used in particular jobs. The bulletin board can serve as a backdrop for student presentations and a jumping off point for research. Many school systems require career exploration as part of the curriculum. This project also includes the use of technology tools, 21st Century learning skills, research skills, group and team skills, as well as math standards, when students are fully involved in the project. Zip File contains PDF and Word documents.
