Math Projects (Grades 3-5)


Math Projects offer a great way to develop problem solving skills while linking your curriculum with real world situations and applications of math skills and concepts. Choose one a month to use as a homework project or set aside some class time on a regular basis for students to work on projects collaboratively. Either way you will be providing opportunities for students to gather, analyze, and organize data; to make decisions, and to solve real life problems while applying key math concepts and skills.
