I am currently working towards my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics Education and have learned more about how students learn. Not all students learn by seeing notes or hearing a lecture. Some students are kinesthetic learners and need to learn by touching and doing. I developed this project to help assist those students who struggle with the typical in class instruction by giving them a more creative way to display their knowledge.
This WebQuest is geared towards students between the ages of 9-12.
I hope you enjoyed this WebQuest and that it gave you some ideas to use in your Consumer Arithmetic classroom. I could think of many other ways to use this same thought to accomplish other math goals as well.
I want to thank my Lecturer Mrs. Williams-Young who gave us this challenging task to make a WebQuest. The activity was a thrilling experience.
