Many of you (some of you? Maybe just one of you?) have heard me talk about and/or use one of Dan Meyer’s 3-Act Math Tasks (see them here: http://tinyurl.com/crjulum ). I love those tasks, but most of them are for secondary school math.
Well, when I was in Atlanta in October I met Graham Fletcher, who is a math specialist in a school district in Georgia. He is very active on the Math Twitter Blogosphere (#MTBOS on Twitter) and gives presentations at math conferences all over the world. I was impressed with his presentation and have since followed him on Twitter (@gfletchy) and on his blog. (http://gfletchy.com). I just found, to my delight, that Graham has created a whole series of 3-Act Math Tasks Lessons for grades K-6, coded to the core standards. They are available here: http://gfletchy.com/3-act-lessons/ .
I was excited, so I thought I would let you know. Now you can be excited and share with all your geeky math friends!
