Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Find Fun Math Challenges on Would You Rather

Would You Rather? is a website maintained by John Stevens for the purpose of sharing quick and fun math challenges for students.  Would You Rather? presents a picture with a mathematics problem that asks “would you rather?” Most of the questions have a financial aspect to them. One of my favorite examples is this challenge that asks “would you rather go on a 5 minute shopping spree in the store of your choice or get a $2,000 gift card to the store of your choice?” Would You Rather? offers a simple worksheet that your students can use to analyze the choices presented to them in the challenges.

Last week I conducted a webinar called Search Strategies Students Need to Know. The webinar sold out. Many people have asked about accessing the recording. The recording of that webinar and all of the others in my Wednesday Webinar series are now available on-demand.

Do you need a workshop or keynote speaker this spring or summer?
