# Wise Learn Math Modeling The Three Little Pigs

(View Complete Item Description)

This unit is a Math Routine to use with a Literacy Unit about The Three Little Pigs. I included student work and projects. I created this slideshow to share with the students as we went through each routine. The routines revolve around the construction of houses. This was used in a first-grade classroom. The students persevered to solve the Lego brick problem although it may have been more difficult than first-grade standards.

# Mathematical Modeling: Making Bird Feeders

(View Complete Item Description)

The Making Bird Feeders project emphasizes a culturally responsive approach to math modeling instruction. By tapping into students’ funds of knowledge and diverse mathematical thinking; opening access to high cognitive demand activities with high supports; and promoting collaboration and collective action to solve problems, mathematical modeling provides an enriching space for students and their teachers to thrive.  We used the Mathematizing the World routine and Know and Need to Know routine to promote critical thinking as students worked together to analyze and solve real world situations that lead to a Making Task in which students had to figure out how many egg cartons were needed so that our class could make bird feeders.  This lesson and routines were modified from EQSTEMM resources https://www.eqstemm.org/home

# Math Modeling: Making Picture Frames

(View Complete Item Description)

Mathematical modeling has the potential to “re-humanize” mathematics (Gutierrez, 2018) by providing students opportunities to make mathematical connections to themselves and the world around them.  The Making Picture Frames  project emphasizes a culturally responsive approach to math modeling instruction. By tapping into students’ funds of knowledge and diverse mathematical thinking; opening access to high cognitive demand activities with high supports; and promoting collaboration and collective action to solve problems, mathematical modeling provides an enriching space for students and their teachers to thrive.  We used the Mathematizing the World routine to promote critical thinking as students worked together to analyze and solve real world situations that lead to a Making Task in which students had to figure out how many popsicle sticks were needed so that our class could make picture frames for our caregiver.   This lesson and routines were modified from EQSTEMM resources https://www.eqstemm.org/home
