Project A3: Awesome Advanced Activities for Mentoring Mathematical Minds Level 3-4 Student Mathematician's Journal
Author(s): Katherine Gavin, Linda Jensen Sheffield, Suzanne H Chapin
The Student Mathematician’s Journal is a unique feature of our Project A3 series. It is modeled after the successful use of these journals in our award-winning Project M3 series. In these journals, the students are asked to reflect on what they have learned and write about it.
Level 3-4 is divided into three activity sections:
- Shape Sleuths strengthens understanding of geometric shapes in all orientations with a focus on area and perimeter.
- Amazing Algebra explores equivalence and a variety of number patterns that help build the foundation for understanding equations.
- Multiplication Madness is a set of games and activities that deepen students’ understanding of multiplication and build computational fluency.
There is also a final project, which includes the investigation of pentominoes.
