Mathematicians at Work

For our first math lesson, the children brainstormed different math topics they might learn about this year. Their answers were very appropriate, ranging from patterns and money to addition and subtraction. Their first "official" math project was a bus glyph (as you can see in this photo) in which they had to answer specific questions and their answers determined the color of their bus/wheels, number of windows, etc. Not only did this project help us get to know one another, it was a great opportunity to collect data. Once the glyphs were complete, students analyzed the similarities and differences among them. You can see these during Academic Open House!
