Introduction to the second year of the Math Connection Project: a Mathematical Problem Solving Workshop between international and public schools around the world. Find the website at http://mathconnections.wikispaces.com/. This collaborative project is designed to provide a place for students and teachers to share their experiences with Mathematics and discover the connection of mathematics study to their own real world experiences. This year’s project is centred about four CHALLENGES which will use a variety of online tools to engage your students’ in exploring and communicating their understanding of Maths within four different strands.

CHALLENGE 1: DATA ANALYSIS November – December

CHALLENGE 2: GEOMETRY January – February

CHALLENGE 3: NUMBER OPERATIONS March – April

CHALLENGE 4: MEASUREMENT May – June

Interested in participating?

The project is open to all elementary and middle school level classrooms from all over the world. Join in for just one time or as many CHALLENGES as they fit into your planning and schedule. Individual, small groups, or whole class examples are welcome. Email Linda at lvnitsche@gmail.com to answer any other questions you might have. 

Project Goals

  • Develop mathematical understanding across the standards of communication, connections, and problem solving.
  • Develop an understanding of the use of mathematics in everyday life.
  • Develop an understanding of the universality of mathematics across the world.
  • Engage students in discussions about mathematics with others across the world.
  • Develop collaborative skills across classes and countries.
