I went to the computer lab on Friday and had my students search around on some of the websites that they had found about math. I had them turn in a short review of each website that they visited and tried to limit them to 3 websites so they could get more in depth into what was available. I then assigned a homework that made them pick one of the websites and review it in depth. The assignment was presented as: each student will pick one math website and they will put together a review of the website as if they are the salesman for the website and they are trying to sell their website to our algebra class. They need to find out what the benefits are for this years class, future math classes and some of the downfalls of the website. This project is due 11/18 and the finished product is open on what they turn in to me (poster, paper, powerpoint, flyer, etc.).

What a fun assignment, one that for me (as a student who did not like math) would have really engaged with this assignment. Nicely done!

This sounds like a great idea. The fact that there are a lot of internet sites out there that we do not have time for makes this a very useful assignment. I think that the kids will use this to share information that they find helpful to the course. What a great way to get kids involved in math.

This does sound fun, let us know how it turns out. But I'm wondering what your goal was for this assignment? What are you hoping the students learn from this?
