Today, we began our culminating project. I made an example for the students to look at and we went over the directions completely. The students picked a partner or chose to work alone. We will spend 100 minutes on the project tomorrow plus the week-end and 50 minutes Monday.
Many good ideas and themes were created for the section of the poster that requires three real-life problems using rational numbers. Ideas ranged from professional golf tournaments to restaurant entrepreneurship to best phone plans.
I am excited to see the finished product. If your child needs poster paper, parents can now get poster paper from our library.
