Keeping the Rigor while Making Math Fun
Lesson Objective: Turning social activities at a residential school into math lessons
Grades 6-8 / Math / Games

Thought starters

  1. See how teachers turn evening games into math lessons. How is the game "Four in a Row" connected to the coordinate grid?
  2. How could you take common outside activities and games and use them in a traditional school setting?

Having only 8 kids to do math in a game like format would be amazing especially plotting their progress in what they have learned in an engaging way. See notes for more.
