Join the Summer of Math 2021
Guest Blog by Howie Hua
Last Summer I created a weekly math session called “Math Summer” where teachers do math together over Zoom. I decided to create a space to do math, especially low-floor high-ceiling problems, so we can learn from each other as well as potentially use these tasks in our classroom. Teachers can volunteer to present a task each week.
Here are the presenters and topics for this Summer’s Math Summer:

Here is a low-floor high-ceiling activity that we did last year found in the book Teaching for Mathematical Understanding by Tony Cotton:
This is my favorite low-floor high-ceiling activity because not only are there several ways to find where 1,000 is, but it also shows how patterns can help us find solutions.
Join in June and July 2021
