Deepen math vocabulary understanding with this fun and creative favorite number project. This project was designed to complement a math unit that explored the following terms:

Odd, even, prime, composite, factor, multiple, square number, square root, array, divisibility, prime factorization

A section on creating equations that equal the favorite number was added as a way to keep math skills sharp.

This project is versatile and could be used as a whole class activity after completing a unit, with small groups of students at a math center, or if you use the Math Workshop model this project could be used as an enrichment opportunity for students that score 100% on the pretest.

This resource offers two project options: a poster or students can choose how they want to share the information that they learn. Students could choose to create a poster, a Prezi, a Power Point or Google Slides presentation, a flip book, or maybe even something you would never imagine. You will find a score sheet appropriate for a poster project and a more generic score sheet that could be used for any colorful and creative project.

Included in the resource:

ā€¢Teacher directions

ā€¢Student directions

ā€¢Project planning sheet (for poster project)

ā€¢Project proposal sheet (for student's to propose a project)

ā€¢Rubrics for both project options

ā€¢Self-evaluation sheet

ā€¢Sample project photos

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Mathematically proficient students make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations. They bring two complementary abilities to bear on problems involving quantitative relationships: the ability to decontextualize-to abstract a given situation and represent it symbolically and manipulate the representing symbols as if they have a life of their own, without necessarily attending to their referents-and the ability to contextualize, to pause as needed during the manipulation process in order to probe into the referents for the symbols involved. Quantitative reasoning entails habits of creating a coherent representation of the problem at hand; considering the units involved; attending to the meaning of quantities, not just how to compute them; and knowing and flexibly using different properties of operations and objects.
