Math Hunt
Kathy S. Price
Naaba Ani Elementary School
Bloomfield, New Mexico

In Math Hunt, student groups search for evidence of math. Students leave the classroom with a bag of science and math tools, and venture into the cafeteria, gym, or lobby to find evidence of patterns, geometric shapes, and fractions. Working cooperatively, students take measurements and make computations of what they find. They record their findings in a spreadsheet on their groupís laptop computer. Back in the classroom, students create a graph of their data, write about their investigations, and share their groupís findings.
