Points of Concurrency Treasure Hunt

My students need: pennants to mark the treasure's location and prizes. I've chosen mechanical pencils, erasers, Skittles, Sharpies, and playing cards as prizes.

My Students

Help me show a very diverse set of teens that math can be fun and rewarding.

About half of my students are refugees.

These kids speak Karen (from Burma), Vietnamese, Nepali, Somali, Bosnian, Arabic, and a good deal more languages. The other half, born in America, mix with the refugees to form the most amazing group of kids I know. Despite huge obstacles to getting a great education, my kids love math that challenges them to think.

My Project

The materials I've chosen will allow me to create a math treasure hunt, complete with treasure chests at each destination. Students will find the points of concurrency in a number of triangles formed by landmarks in our school. The kids will race to find the treasure hidden at each triangle's center and be rewarded. I'm asking for pennants to mark a treasure's location & several types of treasures (mechanical pencils and candies are always popular).

I guarantee no child will ask "when am I going to use this?" about the points of concurrency in triangles.

The Treasure Hunt is going to engage students from a diversity of backgrounds into using math, not for some future endeavor, but for an immediate payoff.
