We'll start the math year by identifying our math "numbers." The number will be the sum value of your first name when each letter has a corresponding value when a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4. . .
Students will find their name value; write their number on a paper t-shirt; add their face/arm photo, and then write facts about their math number.
After that I'll post all the images together outside the math classroom as an illustration of our 2015-2016 Math Team! That will send the message that we're all capable of learning math and that we're all part of one big math team!
