  • Go beyond paper and pencil: get yourself a zoo. We will share lessons that use live animals as a means of collecting data we can then interpret mathematically. Beetles will help us explore distance–time graphs, and snails will show us the value of comparing with percent. We will share lesson plans and tips about classroom pets.
