Project A3: Awesome Advanced Activities for Mentoring Mathematical Minds Level 4-5 Student Mathematician's Journal
Author(s): Katherine Gavin, Suzanne H Chapin, Linda Jensen Sheffield
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 4-5 is divided into three activity sections:
- 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 flag design project incorporating geometry, measurement, and fractions.
