Rachel Rosales on Correlation Station:
Today in prob/stats we started our unit on bi-variate data. Completely hijacking an idea from one of my new twitter friends, @druinok, I had the students work through a variety of stations requiring them to do different types of data collections.
Julie Reulbach on Integer Blackjack:
I got this amazing game from Denise at Let’s Play Math. It is played like Blackjack because the kids are dealt 2 cards, and can say “Hit Me!” to get up to 4 cards. They love, love, love it.
Damon Hedman on Possible Or Not:
I first saw this a few years ago at Shodor Interactivate. I think it is a good way to start thinking about functions. My favorite part is having students make up stories for each graph.
Helaina Thompson on Tennis Ball Artistry:
Cornally introduced the project as simply: “Hey! Let’s fill the room with tennis balls. I want you to need a machete to get to your seat.” The students then looked over the Colossal post and there was no stopping them.
