But What Does It Mean? A Story of Numbers
I’ve always enjoyed math and I find it troublesome that so many students struggle with it, or believe that they cannot do it, even in grade one. I believe that this cross curricular and multimedia project will give students a new and exciting way to engage with the curriculum, especially the new Math
content. It will be a new way for them to understand and view the material. Learning through story is a very powerful medium, and one that is especially successful with children. Being the ones to create the text will make the process memorable and powerful.
