If you haven’t read last week’s introductory post or description of the Great Inquiry-Based Curriculum Mapping Project, please do so. Here’s the short description: there are some open google docs that tie math standards to activities, problems, projects, blog-posts and/or ideas. There have already been some great aggregation of ideas and the documents continue to grow.
Moreover, the number of documents continues to grow. Huge props to Julie (a.k.a. @shyj) for picking up the ball and running with it. She created open google doc curriculum maps for 7th and 8th grade standards. So once again, we’re looking for ideas from the blogosphere, twittersphere, and general internet-sphere for potential ways and resources to address math standards. Anything and everything is welcome. Let’s A) stop working independently and b) start collecting some practical activities we can use in our classrooms.
Thanks to all the “anonymous users” that have thus far contributed. This project really excites me as someone who often struggles with brainstorming alone for math activities and interesting math problems. I’m so glad I have the ability to brainstorm with like-minded people, many of whom have never sat in the same room as me.
Here are the 7th and 8th grade documents:
