If you teach math, you've probably heard the comment, "Why do I have to learn math? I'll never use it!" Use this project to help your students see all the ways they use math in their lives. For this assignment, students are asked to design a poster that shows 10 ways they used math during their summer break. Instructions are given with 3 examples to give students ideas. A rubric is included to grade the finished products.
Want to do this project later in the year? Then check out my Math in My World project. It's the same project, but can be used any time of the year.
