Developing lessons around real-world topics is one of the important concepts in project-based learning. Unit questions are significant part of project-based learning because they help make connections between Math and the real world. Check out some of the videos and resources that will help you develop a unit question and plan for project-based learning in Math.

Developing your own project for project-based learning is not simple. However, project-based learning ideas can come from many sources. You can adapt ideas from your colleagues who have already implemented project-based learning in the classroom or from online resources. This section provides a step-by-step guide to how to develop and plan project-based learning in Math using a concrete example.
