PBL Introduction

As project leader for this assignment, I have brought the proposal to the table about a project that my school is going to attempt to implement this spring. With Mathematic's scores being such a hot topic issue in the state during the past few years. My school is going to try fantasy baseball and mathematics to help promote active project based learning for grades 3-12 in the areas of mathematics. One advantage of the project is that is has shown to have success not only with the students but also with involving parents in their children's education. We plan to implement the use of blogs with this project as a way for students to share what they have learned, news about their teams, and reach out to other schools or students who may be competing as well.

  1. You have really made a believer out of me with fantasy math. I have great hopes for the implementation process at your school. Hopefully your school's student achievement from the implementation will motivate other schools to put it in place as well.

  2. As a language arts teacher, I love the idea of blogging with another school who is using Fantasy Sports math. Promoting dialogue about math surely will help some kids to "get it" who might not have gotten it otherwise. Hope your results are even better than you anticipate! Since the time that you introduced FSM to our group, I've shared it with lots of people --- seems like a lot of people don't know about it . . . YET!
