In this post, I will begin to share a handful of project-based math assignments that I’ve used with elementary aged students. I adore math primarily because I find it useful – in every day life, and when thinking about BIG IDEAS. Particularly in elementary school, I think all of the math that students learn is useful, so I try to relate math to real life as much as I can. This tends to keep students engaged, and it reinforces the value of math.
