-SHARING the product of learning with others.
-REFLECTING on the learning experience & REVISING the product of learning.
In the lesson, Using math to race against Usain Bolt, students engage in core math concepts and skills, such as Stem and Leaf, and recording and graphing data through studying the amazing achievements of the Jamaican olympic runner - Usain Bolt.
1) Demonstrate their knowledge by recording and graphing class data of a 100m race against Usain Bolt’s record time.
2) Present their knowledge about Usain Bolt, using a print and technological presentation tool that creates a mini biography, measurement conversions, and graphing information for the class.
