Use the page to share ideas regarding PBL in Math:

1. Students can use an m & m lab to model exponential growth and decay functions. They will enter and graph this data in an Excel spreadsheet. This would be an activity for Algebra 2.

2. Students can use the building addition blueprints to examine area and perimeter. Students will determine the amount of paint necessary to cover the walls of the new classrooms. Students will then determine the cost of all necessary supplies including painting tape, rollers, paint, paint trays, etc.
