Secondary/7-9: Project Based Maths

In order to present maths concepts in an interesting way we decided to group them together and devise 2 projects for each rung.   Each project has no time limits, so your child can take as long as he/she needs to complete it.

Project-based learning for maths involves the introduction of challenging problems. Project-based learning students are allowed the experiences of real life problems, using their own unique approach.

In project-based learning, students will:

  • gather information about the problem
  • decide how to approach finding a solution
  • decide the types of activities that will be involved
  • analyze the information, breaking it down into the pieces
  • put the information together in new ways--create new information
  • decide how to use the obtained knowledge in the problem
  • apply interdisciplinary knowledge to the problem (for example, using science and social studies knowledge to help solve a math problem)
  • produce something that shows how they applied their knowledge, and what they have learned
  • communicate their results in an effective manner

Essentially, project-based maths, or, as it is often referred to, problem-based maths, involves the creation of a real-life situation (or a historical or imaginary one that simulates a real-life possible situation) that will illustrate certain mathematical principles.
