I am very pleased and excited to share my math lab on Texting While Walking.
* Teachers will surely find that the lab is useful in reinforcing lessons on fractions, ratios, percents, and decimals, while at the same time, students learn safety in texting habits.
*. As the lesson begins, students are presented with statistical information regarding the increase of accidental deaths and injuries from texting while walking over recent years.
*. Students acquire a statistical impression through their own calculations as to the meaning these statistics have in regard to their own safety.
*. Importantly, the effect of these statistics are directly related to their own age group and peers.
*. Students write a page reflecting upon what they have learned through their calculations, and they are asked to suggest solutions to the problem.
*. Students conclude the activity with a fuller understanding of what texting while walking means to their safety.
* I am confident that students will find this lab informative and an interesting application of their mathematical knowledge.
LOVE TO TEACH!
