This week, Mrs. Franke’s middle school students had an opportunity to talk about mathematicians and scientists while coloring and solving the equations on an Alternative standard worksheet. “I got these worksheets while attending the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics of Regional Conference. They are a nice change of pace instead of regular bookwork. Middle schoolers can relate to these worksheets because they enjoy coloring, ” boasts Mrs. Franke. “I like doing them! My favorite part was the coloring!” stated Katie Pearson.
