MATH & MAKING

Posted on: November 26th, 2021 by jnovakowski

Hi there!

The following are a collection of resources that connect the process of design and making with mathematics. For BC educators, there are many connections to our ADST curriculum. The process of creating these materials often involve measuring, estimating and visualizing as well as application of specific mathematics concepts. The resulting products/materials can then be used for various mathematical investigations.
