Project Based Learning
Project based learning is when students are independently creating a project on their own. The teacher can provide a problem to solve or a scenario and the students take it from there, or allow students to research a problem that needs to be solved and create the idea completely on their own. This is a great student discovery method as it promotes independent learning and makes students very excited to persevere and excel. They also become very excited to share what they discovered in the end!
Eureka Math Project Based Learning
Since this shift in teaching has occurred, we try to find ways to flip the learning onto the students in a discovery fashion. We provide the exposure to skills and strategies and let the students bring them to life.
Eureka math promotes this type of learning in a great way. The students are working on application problem solving regularly in every grade level. Students are learning how to analyze a problem, solve a problem, and state what they solved in words. This routine of problem solving makes it easy for students to apply that knowledge on their own.
With this experience and application of how to solve problems, students have the exposure they need to solve problems they may encounter in the world around them.
Eureka math consistently teaches students how to use mental math, multi-steps, and algorithms to solve problems.
Examples of Project Based Learning
Allow students to take the lead with what type of problem to solve. If it is something meaningful to them they will be invested. Then provide students materials to create models to show how to solve the problems. Students can work together in groups to develop ways to solve problems. These problems may contribute to helping their own community. Students can research actual data to use to help solve the problems.
The options are endless really! When you have the students create the idea as well, sometimes they can come up with something very original.
When students are put in charge of their own learning it becomes meaningful and important to them. Eureka Math teaches the students all of the skills they need to be deep thinkers and analytical problem solvers.
Provide the students opportunities to create and solve their own real world problems. You will be surprised and excited to witness the creativity and thoughtfulness put into the student work.
The best part is how proud the students are to share and reveal their learning.
