However, I only gave them one "planning" day in class. The day I assigned the project I gave them the entire period to work and ask questions. After that, they had to see me before/after school with questions. I also let them give me a rough draft and I gave feedback, for those that wanted to do that.Mrs. E Teaches Mathhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14333418485408024108noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8268773079578019071.post-72736157834065080792016-02-18T09:28:59.172-06:002016-02-18T09:28:59.172-06:00Just curious, how many weeks did students have to ...Just curious, how many weeks did students have to complete the project?

Students that stayed on task the whole 45 minute class period finished about 2/3 of the calculations. The rest was homework. I gave less homework throughout the unit to make up for the added time for the project. Drawing on the poster board was the requirement. I made it very clear in class that if they wanted to go above and beyond, I would give up to 5 extra credit points, but their time would be better spent elsewhere. Giving two class periods would be plenty of time for everyone to finish the calculations. I don't like to give time in class to work on the posters. I think that many kids have more supplies at home and they're more creative when they're not looking at their classmates' work. :)Mrs. E Teaches Mathhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14333418485408024108noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8268773079578019071.post-81888280020421168532014-04-21T16:45:09.816-05:002014-04-21T16:45:09.816-05:00These projects look great!!

Maybe the animal cages have to have enough room to hold a certain volume of food and the monkey cages have to use plexiglass and the surface area needs to be calculated..... Thanks for leaving your comment; I now have an idea brewing for next year :DMrs. E Teaches Mathhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14333418485408024108noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8268773079578019071.post-222441644076824442014-04-18T17:59:33.241-05:002014-04-18T17:59:33.241-05:00This is so cute!
