“This was a lot of fun. …

October 12, 2012

“This was a lot of fun. It made you want to watch it again and again. You end up memorizing it, including the boring parts.”
Bridget Schafer

In the past, my 6th grade math students were asked to memorize the Divisibility Rules from a foldable. They would copy the rule and practice from their foldable.  This year, students were challenged to create a multi-media presentation, in a format of their choice, to internalize these rules. That foldable is now an educational dinosaur.

I asked the students to create their presentation in a manner that would allow them to not only memorize, but to show understanding of the Divisibility Rules.  I also challenged them to showcase their own individuality.  Let their personality shine! I chose Bridget Schafer’s presentation to share because not only is her fun personality evident, but she exhibits complete understanding of the concept.  I will use hers as an exemplary model in the future.  Take a “class” on the Divisibility Rules with Bridget and let me know if you agree.
