Math Detectives

Learning Goals: Real-World Math, Number & Shape Recognition, Documenting Learning

    • Take a small group of students outside, or into the hallway at school.
    • Encourage them to look for math all over the school.
    • Students can document their learning by taking photos of the math that they see around them or creating a list with words and/or drawings. 
    • Prompt and extend students’ contributions. What numbers do they see? What shapes do they see?
