Tips and Tools

This is a critical milestone in the project. Have teams offer and receive feedback on their draft presentation. Have them analyze the draft product according to the rubrics. Is it compelling for teens? Convincing? Does it reference historical significance of geometry? Does it show/teach concepts for this unit.

Teams should enter progress on the Project Milestones Checklist.

Have students enter their observations (what they learned, what they need to learn, etc) in their Daily Learning Logs.

Collect and review logs for grading or feedback.
