My Search for Meaningful Mathematics Activities
When I first started teaching I had a hard time finding activities that would be interesting to the students and include powerful mathematics. Let’s face it, doing page after page of uninspired problems out of the textbook can become tedious very quickly. These textbook assignments often don’t relate math to our students in ways that are important to them. They don’t cause students to value and enjoy mathematics.
Creating My Own Middle School Math Activities
The activities I did find usually were not up to my standards so I decided to start creating my own math activities. My goal was to create activities that I enjoyed teaching, that the students enjoyed learning, and that taught or solidified the important math standards that I was responsible to teach my students.
I believe that my lesson design strengths include organizing ideas, sequencing lessons, accounting for all the details of a great lesson, and applying powerful mathematics to the world in a way that students will appreciate and enjoy.
My solution was to create math activities that:
help me to powerfully teach my curriculum
promote active, hands-on mathematical learning
are interesting and engaging to students
are immediately available to teachers
are easy to implement for teachers using for the first time
are classroom tested in my own classroom
Teachers Are Talking About The Complete Collection Activities
Here’s what other teachers have to say about the math lessons, projects, and games included in Marvelous Middle School Math: The Complete Collection of Lessons, Projects, and Games:
“Great activities that get students engaged and working together! I am using many of these projects in my first period enrichment/remediation class. The students seem to enjoy these activities/projects as well. As we implement common core standards next year, I am ecstatic to use many of these activities! Great stuff, thanks for putting it all together for purchase.”
– Math for the Middle (TpT seller)
“These projects have the perfect combination of rigorous math content and fun creativity. We love them!”
– Jenna S.
“This is my new “go-to” resource when I need a fun project or activity for my students.”
– T. Hutchens
“This is jam packed of great activites! Makes math meaningful. Thank you.”
– LeeAnn P.
“I use the Amateur Architect, FDP Bingo, Squarea, and The Royal Reward every year. I have also use The Big Event (a bit more time consuming). I believe they are a great way to complete specific units and have students use the skills they have learned. The students love these projects! The lessons are well formatted and easy to use.”
– Tracy Miller, Davenport School of the Arts, Davenport, FL
“I have used at least three activities from DigitalLesson in my 6th grade class. Each one went extremely well. I love having a different way to present the topics.”
– Josh Ryan, Buckley School, Sherman Oaks, CA
“I have used all that I have bought, and it is most of the activities, in my classroom. They are fun and challenging and match the Michigan standards.”
– Susan Schut-Koning, Sparta Middle School, Sparta, MI
“I work with students in math labs…small groups, students who need extra math help. I need activities to involve them, raise their interest level, and have them be successful. These activities work wonderfully!!”
– Sue Martin, Greene Middle School, Greene, NY
“I couldn’t be happier with my digital lesson products. I ordered THE WORKS. I teach gifted 4th and 5th graders who are at many different levels. The lessons were easy to incorporate into my classroom activities. I used them to keep those high-level kids engaged while I worked with small groups on basic skills. My students loved the challenge and were able to work independently after a thorough introduction.
…The games are by far my favorite. We love SKUNK! I have used almost every game at some time. These are great for a “Fun Friday” or for filler when schedule changes or standardized tests call for short class time.
Thank you for developing these lessons.
– Lauri F., Atlanta, GA
