The Project A3: Awesome Advanced Activities for Mentoring Mathematical Minds, content allows students to think deeply about the mathematics by engaging in rich discussions and in-depth written explanations to justify their thinking. These investigations are a far cry from your typical enrichment worksheets. Students love the games and interactive activities that challenge them and encourage their critical and creative thinking.
The three units cover the following topics:
Level 4-5 is divided into three activity sections: number theory, fractions, and geometry activities. Each section begins with an Anchor Activity followed by five or six further explorations and extensions that are connected in some way to the Anchor.
Notable Numbers focuses on number theory including factors and multiples, prime and composite numbers, and abundant, deficient, and perfect numbers.
Fantastic Fractions includes equivalence, ordering, addition and subtraction of fractions, ordering and adding decimals, and finding fractional areas.
Sensational Shapes deals with two-dimensional polygons and their properties.
There is also a final project incorporating geometry, measurement, and fractions.
