I like to give this project out in the beginning of the year because it allows the students to see the reason why Math is so important to us.
The students have to choose an adult they know and interview them. In the interview they will discover why Math is important in that career, what Math is being used, and an example of a math problem someone in that career might face. They will then create a poster, using the instructions on the guideline provided. The students like doing this project I enjoy it as well! I included a rubric along with the project.
In the download I included some photo samples of my students' work. It will give you a better idea of what the project should look like.
Enjoy the download! If you purchase, please be kind, rate, and leave a comment. Thanks!
