Finding Math Heroes

Finding Math Heroes

Our MYP2 math class is exploring the lives of famous people to understand their contributions to math and how they demonstrated one or more of the IB learner profile attributes in their lives.

In an initial session students brainstormed to list who and what they already knew:

MYP2 Math - Math Hero - brainstorming

MYP2 Math – Math Hero – brainstorming

MYP2 Math - Math Hero - what we know about Newton

A later session explored the four branches of mathematics, with students creating posters to illustrate them:

MYP2 Math - Math Hero - making the poster

These formative experiences are preparing students for their final project in which they will communicate their learning through a poster, presentation, story, song, or other medium.
