4 Funny Math Project [DUE 17 DECEMBER 2014]

DIRECTIONS: SAW . Use separate paper if needed.

Funny math project.

Students create a cartoon based on several mathematical concepts from a recent unit (subtraction,
addition, multiplication the box, cluster, multiplication algorithm, or lattice) , division, time, money,
comparing numbers, square root, clue words, and so on). All students must draw a comic strip based on
several math concepts with 10 panels. The panels must have clearly drawn characters, an explanation of
a math technique, concept or rule, and they include some elements of humor, irony or drama in the
cartoon. Each panel must contain or demonstrate a different mathematical concept. For example,
students create a masked hero who catches a bank robber, adding and subtracting money sums
throughout the piece as well as including the time the banker robber tried to rob the bank and the time
the superhero saved the customers from the bank robber. This is a school project; therefore, violence
should not be depicted in this project. Students are allowed to combine math with their favorite
characters, such as superheroes or Saturday morning cartoon show favorites.
