I'm currently taking Math for Elementary Teachers and we are supposed to do a project with a written paper and a presentation with visuals. We're supposed to choose a topic in class on Wednesday and I can't seem to come up with any good ideas since math is definitely not my forte. Some of the topics suggested were manipulatives, fractals, math games, etc. but I'm hoping to try to think of something not on the list. Does anyone have any ideas? The instructions she gave us weren't very specific. I'm doing it with a partner and I think she said she thought of something but I want to have a few to choose from too.
Thanks for the suggestions! I don't think there is a SmartBoard in the room and I actually have no experience with that yet either.
We decided to go with Tessellations. Our backup topic was going to be the golden ratio, which is a little more complicated. Our presentation is supposed to be 10-15 minutes, I think. So if anyone has done any lessons on tessellations before or has some suggestions I'd love to hear them!
I'm taking a math course right now that all teachers who are secondary math/science and all elementary teachers in the state have to take. I think a good project would be just doing something like they do in this class where you look at different ways to teach them than how we always have...I could tell you more if you are still looking. (I'm a math teacher...not elementary).
