Math peeps! I just discovered Dan Meyer’s three-act math tasks and I must say that I am hooked! If you’ve never heard of them before, they start with a video which makes students naturally come up with questions that they can answer mathematically. You then supply them with additional information they can use to come up with solutions. My students absolutely love them because they are like mysteries!
I’ve adapted one from Dane Ehlert (https://whenmathhappens.com/2014/07/29/water-filter/) and made it into a formative so that I could gather their wonderings and use them to drive our discussions (what question we were working towards answering, what information would help us). Here’s a link to the formative(https://goformative.com/clone/BBLGBA) I made!
