More Math Snacks: What Do You Want to See? FULL

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

Limited Capacity filling up

Math Snacks include animations and games to teach middle school concepts like ratio, proportion, scale factor, coordinate plane and number line using a constructivist approach of teaching and learning. Each lesson is available in English and Spanish and provides numerous support materials for teachers.

In this session, you'll be introduced to Math Snacks, experience a Math Snacks lesson, and learn about utilizing the new Spanish-languge Math Snacks materials. Then, the Math Snacks team from New Mexico State University needs your help!

In the coming years, we will be developing more Math Snacks to address pre-algebra concepts including related quantities, the meaning of variables and an exploration of expressions and equations. We need your input on what you want to see in a future Math Snack game or animation. What are the concepts you know your students need to know to succeed in Algebra, but just don't get? What do you need better visual representations and lessons for? Your ideas might just be turned into a Math Snacks animation or video game!
