Mission: Impossible? The Art of Engaging Activities

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This is an activity I have used in multiple grade levels on various math topics. The activity is titled "Mision:Impossible".  You will participate in a multi-stage activity that facilitates collaboration, problem solving, perseverance, and mathematical reasoning.   Will your group prevail and show Mission: ACCOMPLISHED? Come check it out!    After getting a chance to experience the math, you will understand the back-planning that went into it and how to go from Common Core prioirty standards to question creation.  Lastly, an opportunity to ask  one-on-one questions and answers as well as troubleshooting / brainstorming.  Have you wondered how to take an activity and make it applicable to any math topic, any grade level? Come check this session out and turn the impossible into reality!
