My students come from diverse ethnic and academic backgrounds. The ability levels in my Algebra 2 and Probability and Statistics classes vary from being in honors classes to foundations level in the past years.
Using colored paper, glue, rulers, scissors, and other basic school supplies, the students are able to display their understanding of mathematical concepts by creating games of chance or flip books to tutor other students.
They enjoy being able to use nontraditional projects in place of just pencil and paper assignments. Each year I have to replace these supplies to share with my students.
We need markers, pencils, paper and glue to create learning projects. Some projects we have planned include making interactive notes or flip books which incorporate vocabulary and student created examples. These items can then be used as resources for other students who still require reinforcement to master algebraic skills. This process encourages peer tutoring and support. For the students who have mastered the concepts, the project can be utilized for enrichment.
In past years, I have had my students create board games to demonstrate their understanding of probability and chance.
To create these games, the students used poster board, glue, markers and colored pencils to create the game boards. For the classmates to play the games, some students incorporate dice for advancement of game pieces.
