MATH
Math on my Mind!

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: April 16, 2001

Designate a corner of your chalkboard as a place for the "Math on my Mind" problem of the day. Challenge students who get to class early, or are finished with an assignment, to solve the unique problem. Ideas might include such things as posting a checkerboard and asking how many squares are on the board. Students will be surprised to find how many there actually are. Another questions might be, "How many 3-digit numbers can you create with the number: 6,438?" These challenges are meant to expand their thinking skills, not just a problem to come up with a quick answer.
