  • Baking for Math Unit
    This unit will help students understand the importance of fractions and mathematics. With math being some students least favorite subject, I thought the “bake sale” theme would help spice things up more. Most students enjoy eating and at the end of the unit we have a surprise for the students.
  • Roles of Teacher, Parents, and Students
    Teachers
    The teacher will be the facilitator and guide throughout this unit. Students will be given specific instructions and only guided when needed.
    Parents
    Parents will have to play a small role by review and signing sheet each week to ensure that their child is actively engaged in the project.
    Students
    Students will be the managers, employees, and shoppers in the project. They will be expected to provide a weekly presentation on their store each week.
  • Benefits of the Unit
    This unit will be beneficial to students because it will show them the importance of money and fractions. Fractions can be used in upper level math classes and money is what we all like and love to buy what we want.

    Project Based Learning can be defined as learning through, with, and from your own peers. It is also using projects to teach new concepts and can even help by keeping students engaged more.
