Math Project #4 Fractional Me

fractional me 2This week, I started teaching fractions. My students had fun as their creativity flow on their Fractional Me project (1 day project approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour). They created portraits of themselves out of small squares (post-it note or 3×3 cut-outs). They were responsible for determining the fractional amounts of each color. This is a great way to integrate Art and Values, and for the students to remember that fractions is part of a whole on a personal level.

I also encourage my students to love their unique beauty and charm. I tell them that they must not let anyone define who they are, because they are the ones who know themselves best. During middle school years, students tend to seek approval and validation from others especially among their peers. They hear negative things people say about them, and of course, it hurts when someone tries to spread gossips. I tell my students to stand strong and embrace their unique beauty and charm. It doesn’t matter what others think about you but what really matters is how you see yourself. You know who you are so brush it off and stay positive. Let your beauty shine from the inside out.

Math Project #3 Math EggQUATIONS Project

solve eggquations pic 2Objective: the students will be able to demonstrate their skills in solving equations (One step and two-step)

Materials:

* empty egg carton

*12 pieces colorful plain plastic (toy) eggs

*Coloring materials, marker/Sharpie

*Colored papers

Procedure:

1. Design the egg carton and label  with :

Egg Equations (1 Step, 2 Step or Multistep) Project or Writing Eggquations Project

2. Pick two sets of 6 item equations /inequalities questions  from the project worksheet (provided by the teacher) and students make their own 6 equations question.

3. Using a marker  write each question on  each egg shell and the solution on each egg space in the egg carton.

4. Answer each question, show all work and write down the steps on a  paper .Fold the paper and put it inside the egg  with the corresponding question that was answered.

5.  The egg  project will be graded by their classmate (assigned partner) and the teacher on the evaluation day.

6. Criteria for Grading: 

Accuracy of the answer= 50%

Solving Process (show and explain  the steps)= 30%

Project Design (neatness and  completely labeled)= 20%
