I am passionate about finding ways to enrich and push those students who are ready for a challenge. This math menu includes 18 rounding math projects.
I made the product with the intent of using it as enrichment for those students who are proficient with the skill. The activities are intended to challenge them and encourage them to use their creativity to work with real life math examples. I ask my students to complete a side dish first, then an entrée and finally they can complete a dessert activity. I included more dessert options because they require more supplies and/or technology. Feel free to just use the ones that you have the resources to offer.
Side Dishes: These projects are intended to be warm-up activities. They get students writing about the topic and exploring the math vocabulary.
Entree: These projects ask students to apply the skills they have learned to a real world math problem. Each project provides student choice. No two answers will be the same!
Dessert: These projects allow students to apply higher order thinking skills to create somethings that demonstrates their knowledge of the skill such as a game, poem, video, presentation, poster, etc.
You can organize the math menu in a couple of different ways:
Make a Binder: One way that this product can be used is by making a binder. Use the cover page and dividers that are provided to organize the projects in a binder. Students can take the binder back to their seat or work area.
Make a Bulletin Board: You can create a math menu bulletin board with a row for each of the categories of math projects. Students can look at the board to choose their project. The bulletin board can be changed out periodically for new skills.
Task Cards: You can give students task cards that have each of the different choices.
