Once again, a few of my favorite bloggers have come through with math calendars for our students to puzzle over. Check them out:
- Elementary Math Calendars from Bethany at Math Geek Mama
- Algebra and Geometry Calendars from Chris at Partially Derivative
- High School Review Calendar from Mel at JustMaths
Things to Do with a Math Calendar
Post the calendar on your refrigerator. Use each math puzzle as a daily review “mini-quiz” for your children (or yourself).
In the classroom:
Post today’s calculation on the board as a warm-up puzzle. Encourage your students to make up “Today is…” puzzles of their own.
As a puzzle:
Cut the calendar squares apart and trim off the dates. Then challenge your students to arrange them in ascending (or descending) order.
Make up problems to fill a new calendar for next month.
And if you do, please share!
