I really wanted our first week of Math together to be fun and set us all up to really rethink Math through a series of fun activities and projects. As a third grade team we participated in a Week of Inspirational Math! Each day we had a different group activity that allowed us to explore Math and establish norms for group work. From noticing patterns in Pascal's Triangle, to creating new numbers using just four fours, to even coming up with our own observations on how a set of shapes are growing, we really had a lot of fun! We also focused on approaching Math with the Growth Mindset along with understanding that mistakes are KEY to learning and growing. Here are some photos of us working through various Math challenges.
Here is a summation of our key concepts and take-aways from each day of Math!
