Day 2: Introducing creating your own graphing stories

Because it’s the first week of school we’re not jumping into the block schedule until Wednesday.

Today the students were introduced to creating your own graphing stories activity. It was a wonderful activity for my pre-algebra students to show them how math can interpret our world in different ways—using graphs. The activity appears to be a bit of a cognitive leap for some of my standard students. Perhaps the idea is a bit too abstract.

All the classes will have a quick recap on day 3. Maybe delaying it a day will give them the necessary time to process the idea before they’ll create their own.
