Three-Act Math Story Projects: An Introduction

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

According to Mark Turner in his book The Literary Mind, "Narrative imagining — story — is the fundamental instrument of thought... Rational capacities depend on it. It is our chief means of looking in to the future, of predicting, of planning, and of explaining...Most of our experiences, our knowledge and our thinking is organized as stories.” 

Imagine the power of using story in your math class! Join Scott & Megan as they lead you through a beginner’s overview of the 3-Act Story Math structure.

Allow Megan & Scott to take you, their students, away on an incredible journey--from the scariest airport in the world to the tallest point on Earth!  It's a mathematical journey of proportional relationships and modeling of real-world scenarios. But, it's much more than that! It is also a rich cultural experience in the life of Everest climbers. Begin the adventure of a lifetime with Expedition Everest!

Megan and Scott will guide you through the essential components of 3-Act Story Math, and then will task you with beginning to build an adventure for YOUR students! Note: this session is recommend for teachers who have not taken part in MidSchoolMath Story Project Workshops, retreats or sessions in the past.
