With very minimal prep (I've already done the research and collected the facts), you can get this going in your own classroom this year.
Here's the deal --- I'm going to feed the weekly fact straight to you from my twitter. And I'm going to do it each Friday for the following week! So all you have to do is copy the quick little mathematician fact onto your board before you head home for the weekend!
Then, at the end of each semester, I'll provide a free puzzle to review the mathematicians that were covered. I'll just send you the link in advance through the Twitter feed.
This would be a perfect handout for a substitute day towards the end of the semester, or as a change of pace before or after finals or winter break.
All you have to do is follow me on twitter and keep your eyes open for the hashtag #WeeklyMathematician to participate with your own class. Enjoy!
Click the images to get the free downloads for the crossword puzzles that will help your students pull it all together! Recording sheets to use throughout the weeks are also included.
Be sure to click the star to "follow" the TPT store when you download, so that you will get notifications as I post new materials.
You'll love these ones too! -
