Ken Ken for the Classroom

     Puzzle sets are sent via email to me every Friday. Each set contains a variety of levels and sizes, appropriate for all ages, grades, and skill levels. KenKen is one of the best teaching tools available to encourage the development of math skills, logic, creativity, critical thinking, reasoning, self-confidence and perseverance. Plus…it makes math FUN! This week’s set can be downloaded here: KenKen 

 

Exploding Dot Explorers:

     The Global Math Project team offers heartfelt wishes for ease and well-being for you and your loved ones during this difficult time. Maintaining health and well-being, and curbing the spread of the virus, we know, has not just a physical toll, but psychological and financial tolls as well. 

     As schools and universities close across the globe, we have received requests to offer some specific guidance on helping students and parents conduct coherent, self-guided Exploding Dots experiences at home. In case it is of interest to you, James has prepared such a document.  You can read it and download it G’Day Math.

     Be safe. Our best wishes. – The GMP team.
