This project combines the responsibility of students to make a name tag with them designing clues about themselves to equal a target number. Student mathematical reasoning, number skills, and a fun getting to know you activity are all rolled into one!
For the student:
This project has been designed to give middle school math students a way to demonstrate some critical thinking skills, creativity, and give students information about themselves to their peers.
For the teacher:
This activity is differentiated because students can work at their own level of creating clues.
Students also will create their own name tags (no more writing out names for multiple classes!)
