What Do You Notice?

How it works

Students are asked to write down and attach their mathematical observations about a thought provoking poster. These posters are designed to get students (and their parents!) thinking about math on a deeper level. As an added encouragement to participate, they can earn an extra guess at the Estimation Jar.
