Do you enjoy connecting your students to share in the learning?
Then this is the challenge for you!
The Global Math Task Twitter Challenge is entering it's second year of sharing! We'd love to have you join in and share with us!
We are looking for students/homeschoolers/classes/teachers of all ages, all over the world, to participate in the Global Math Task Twitter Challenge starting in the fall of 2016.
If you follow Beverly Ladd (@bevery_ladd) or Heidi Samuelson (@swampfrogkids) on Twitter, you might have seen us tweeting math problems and tasks for other classes to answer. We want to expand on our experiences and share them with you! We think we've created a fantastic way for teachers all over the globe to connect and do the same.
You can join in the challenge at any time! Just follow the hashtag for your grade(age) level and respond to tasks being shared out.
We'd LOVE to have classes/teachers sign up for a week to tweet tasks this upcoming school year. Choose a week or two or three to dedicate to sharing tasks of the math skills you're working on at that time.
For those that have class twitter accounts and would love to tweet, or have your students tweet, a math problem daily for one week, please sign up under the appropriate column for your students age/grade. Make sure to follow the appropriate hashtag for your grade level because questions could be posted at anytime from anywhere around the world. We understand that some countries have different conversions and systems when it comes to money and measurement. If you chose to tweet measurement problems please be aware that not all countries will be able to participate or it can be taken as an additional challenge to teach your students to convert them. I know for my class, we learn Fahrenheit to Celsius conversions while doing mystery skypes with countries outside of the United States.
Please check your calendar to ensure availability and be sure you only sign up if you plan to do it each day that week using the hashtag appropriate for your grade level.
