What Do You Notice? Pie Graph

## What Do You Notice? Pie Graph

There’s been a big push to get students looking at and analyzing data. So I’m excited to share with you one of my latest What Do You Notice? posters…a poster that gives students (and their families) an opportunity to think about and share their thoughts about the math they see. For this poster, I created a simple pie graph as a fun way to show students how information can be visually organized. That said, as you’ll see in the description below, there’s a lot…

What Do You Notice? is a super easy activity that lends itself well to a lot of great math thinking and conversation. These low floor, high ceiling posters are a great way to engage families during a Family Math Night event. That’s why we included them in our Virtual Family Math Night.

Virtual Family Math Night

## Virtual Family Math Night

We’ve finished! And the result is an amazing virtual event for your families where they can safely engage in an unforgettable and fun math learning experience…together. How did we do it? We created a virtual classroom that serves as the meeting place for your families. Once your families enter the classroom, they’ll be able to sign in and view the Guest Book to see who’s attending. They’ll then decide which of the 5 stations they want to explore. Maybe it’s the Estimation Station where…

## Time Capsule – A Family Math Night Activity

We are living through a historic moment in history that has brought about some major changes to our lives. As an elementary math educator, I wanted to figure out a way for students to capture this moment through a math activity. That’s when I came up with the idea of creating a time capsule.

I presented the activity a few weeks ago as a webinar for a homeschooling consortium but when we lost the video of the presentation, I decided to film it again and am including it for you below.

It’s a simple but fun project that the whole family can do. With a little adaptation, it would work in the virtual classroom, as well.
