One subject I personally find it more difficult to discover project-based learning tasks for is math. This article provides a few different examples of projects you could incorporate into your math curriculum!

Different ways to incorporate PBL with geometry. Fun real life examples that can make math meaningful.

I am an elementary education major with a specialization in math. So this article was especially interesting to me. Also when I was younger geometry was the hardest for me to understand. I can remember countless nights staying up studying with my father trying to not only memorize formulas but understand the meaning behind them. This article was helpful and gave me ideas for activities that I would use in my classroom. When I was in grade school I don't remember doing a lot of the activities that are now offered through project based learning. And these activities even helped me have a better understanding of concepts. I think that it is good that these activities are offered now. I think this will help improve the efficiency of learning for students.

This is a really informative website that explains to readers what project based learning is. It reiterates the concepts that we have gone over thus far in EDCI397 in a simple and easy way. I especially like that there are separate pages to browse through on the right side of the page. The link, "Why PBL?" struck me. It explains that now, more than ever, students find school to be boring and pointless. We have to change this! Students are the future and we have to make sure that they play an active and engaging role in their worlds. These are definitely concepts that I will implement in my classroom.

This website describes what project-based learning is and reiterates the information I learned in EDCI397. It allowed me to get a better understanding of how useful project-based learning can be in a classroom and I definitely plan on using the concepts in my future classroom!

Here is a quick breakdown of what PBL involves.

This is a project that I found when looking for a topic with my partner in class. In the goals of this project it states that one of the goals for the teacher is, "to better learn how to use project based learning." That is what jumped out at me but then as I read on the project seemed like a great way to engage students. I especially liked this project because it demonstrates global competency for the kids. But also it promotes healthy eating for kids themselves.

We've talked a lot about this in class. Project Based Learning has many essentials to it, but it is all integrated smoothly. Project Based Learning should be about something that students are interested in and something that the students will take active participation in. It is important to get all of the students engaged and interested in what they are learning in the classroom.

Project based learning is a reoccurring topic in the class EDCI397. I didn't have the best understanding of this concept. But this article helped me have a better understanding of what PBL is. Also after reading this article I have a better understanding of how to execute project based learning in the classroom.
