Ari is giving away her iLearn PowerPoint and Activities!

Today, I'm giving away my 4 best-selling math projects. I have used all 4 of these in my classroom, and they get rave reviews from kids AND parents. There is a lot of math going on in these packets, and they are all real world scenarios. If you are one of the four winners, you will win these four products:

I've given you a lot of different options for entering today. I just love reading all of your responses to the Facebook questions and your blog post comments. Thank you SO much for participating!

Stop by tomorrow for one more day of giveaways and don't forget about the TpT Gift Card Giveaway!!

I love having them use things they find at home for geometry, have them take pictures of visual representations...Tour the school for examples of geometry terms. Tie math and science into one meaningful lesson!

ReplyDeleteI like to use math in other parts of our day (when appropriate) to show kids that we use it in more than just math class.

ReplyDeleteHunter's Tales from Teaching

I love using food to teach about measurement. I often have my kids make a recipe when we are talking about measuring with cups, pints, quarts, etc.

I like to take them on scavenger hunts where they have to find things in the classroom or around the school that fit what we I am teaching. This works really well with measurement and geometry of course. :-)

ReplyDeleteI like to use the students names in math problems and I also use real life photos or videos to introduce concepts and problems.

ReplyDeleteI love showing them any chance we get where math comes into play. At lunch, recess, in the hallway, science, and when they tell me stories!

ReplyDeleteWe have been making CEPAs for the district, and really trying to find situations that the students could find themselves in to use as the basis for the problems - For ex. in grade 1, they have to prove to their teacher they are able to solve some math problems to show her they are able to go to the Kindergarten to be a math helper, IN grade 3 they have to choose items from the lunch menu to equal a certain amount of money etc.

ReplyDeleteMultiplication, Division, and Fractions - I will be spending a lot of time in these areas this year with my fourth graders. Any chance to show them real world application is priceless.

ReplyDeleteI use problems from our farm/ranch which most of my kids are familiar with. We figure grain storage capacity, how large the water tank has to be for a certain number of cattle, both using circumference and area, tire sizes, cost per animal based on figures from the local paper...etc. They really have their eyes opened to how much math farming and ranching requires!

ReplyDeleteGreat giveaway! Thanks!

ReplyDeleteI like to use food, manipulatives (little erasers, pebbles, clay, etc.), and task cards. Anything to get the students using their hands is great!

Thank y'all so much for this! So generous. :-) I'm your newest follower and I've entered to win this loveliness! Thanks again - it's awesome!

I like to use CGI problems to incorporate math skills into real-life situations :)

ReplyDeleteWhen I write problems, I use my students' names. I also use teachers names from our school, which they love as well.

I have my students use real world situations that require math such as grocery receipts and determine how much items would cost if they bought more of each or if they only had a certain amount of money what would they buy.

ReplyDeleteI strive for no 'naked' problems. Everything should be a word problem so students can see real life application. If I find myself using math that often becomes a warm up problem the next day.

ReplyDeleteThere are many ways I use real world situations in my math lessons. We take pictures/bring in items that have geometric shapes, we use grocery ads for multiplication/addition practice, we use real foods for measurement, I use them when I make up word problems, we make recipes for measuring, and use food/items for fractions.

ReplyDeleteI have students bring in things from home during our measurement unit

ReplyDeleteUse sale fliers and the students go shopping

ReplyDeleteLove to give my kids catalogs to shop through. Had the idea this summer to let them use Oriental Traders to plan a birthday party.

ReplyDeleteI will be teaching a self-contained functional life skills and academic class. We will be learning the concepts/skills in class and then will be going out into the community to see how it is applied in real life :)

ReplyDeleteThis will be my first year teaching math, but I plan to use sales discounts and a fantasy sports league (students pick players that earn points every week, but you have to use an equation with fractions to figure out those points) to help my students out.

ReplyDeleteI have the kids practice math fluency with money amounts.

ReplyDeleteI use food for measurement, graphing, and fractions. I also use real objects for shapes or pictures of real objects. With graphing you can use their own favorites, etc to make it real world

I love making math meaningful by having the students brainstorm a list of ways they used math that day - it's amazing the amount of things they come up with. It helps them to see that math is important and we do use it daily.

Joy in the Journey

We use our school teams' stats to work with mean, mode, etc., and probability. We also use "shopping" for a lot of different math concepts: price per item/best price, decimal concepts, money/making change,etc.

ReplyDeleteI love taking the hardest math concepts and teach them using real-world situations and projects to make them more relevant.

ReplyDeleteMeghan

I love making connections across the curriculum during our day/week when a concept interweaves with other things we are learning. The kids love it especially when they catch them.

ReplyDeleteHands on activities! Letting students realize that they will use these concepts in these types of real life situations. Also using cross-curricular activities whenever I can :)

ReplyDeleteSara

When I teach multi step problems, I like to bring supermarket circulars and give the kids a shopping list and fake money. They use rounding, estimation, subtraction and multiplication skills to figure out how much to spend.

ReplyDeleteI like to use food to teach shapes, I also use their names in problems, and lots of hands on!

ReplyDeleteMONEY...is my favorite way to incorporate the real world...I work in an urban district and my kids go to the corner store everyday...They have to know how to shop and get the right amount of change back. Many math topics can be incorporated.

ReplyDeleteivett

Money for me, too! Shopping, using a budget, discounts/percents off, tax... you can incorporate so many skills in one shopping task!

ReplyDeleteWe've added some standards this year that center around budgeting, balancing a checkbook etc. I'm looking forward to the real world applications!

ReplyDeleteI used the checkbook activity with my 5th graders this past year, incorporating writing checks, making purchases, returns, tax, and the kids loved it. Using fractions I usually do some cooking, having the students add fractions to find the total amount of an ingredient. We also create at Geometry-town where the students are engineers. They design a town with street requirements of angles, line relationships, and buildings in specific geometric shapes.

ReplyDeleteI incorporate cross-curricular connections throughout the day, whether it is a graph in social studies or a chart in science, to help the kiddos realize that math is everywhere!

ReplyDeleteMy favorite thing to do with my students is to have them plan a party. I give them a budget and they have to figure out what items and the quantity based on the number of students in the class and their budget. This helps them to grasp the concept of multiplication and division.

ReplyDeleteMoney is the easiest way but also measuring things at home and reading cereal boxes!!!

ReplyDeleteKeeping it hands-on and bringing in materials that reflect real life such as circulars from the stores in the area.

ReplyDeleteI like to get out of the classroom as much as possible. When we can't go out, I bring in realia or we go on a virtual field trip.

ReplyDeleteWhen teaching time, I use a check-out sheet in my classroom where they have to write down the time they leave, and then when they get back..also lets me see who is spending a lot of time out of the classroom! BUT really helps them to learn to tell time as well!

ReplyDeleteThank you so much for the information and giveaways!

ReplyDeleteI love to incorporate real world examples everyday especially in math. I actually ask my students to give me an example - it's a great way to see if they really "get" the concept! Usually they are spot on:)

ReplyDeleteMy students can buy items in my classroom when we're studying money. They have to count out the correct amount of change.

ReplyDeleteMy students have fun using book orders to go shopping during our unit on money.

ReplyDeleteI love your blog template and your giveaway! Thanks so much!

ReplyDeleteWe use check books and learn how to write checks, balance a checkbook, and deposit checks. This year I want to incorporate activities around the book order forms.

ReplyDeletecheryllhoff@yahoo.com

I love to do it through centers since I get to work with small groups!

ReplyDeleteI try to create math problems that center on real life and students create their own word problems as well.

ReplyDeleteI try to talk to the kids about how the math that we learn applies to them. I also try to have them bring things from home . . . it's easy in geometry!

ReplyDeleteI integrate Social Studies and discuss budgets, supply and demand, and I let them think about something they'd like to buy. Then they have to come up with a plan about how they could earn the money, how long it would take, and so on. By the way, I loved your made it Monday post a few weeks ago, with the organizer for all the things we need on a daily basis. Both my daughters are 3rd year teachers and I made one for each of them as we'll as myself!! Thanks for the freebie labels for the drawers. We all love them!!
