Back to School Math Project - John McBildit

John McBildit's Staircase Problem is one of my favorite math projects for back to school time.  It takes just 2-3 days, and is a great intro to the variety of ways to approach math problems and explain mathematical thinking.  I have used this successfully with second and third graders.

Hop on over to my blog for day by day lesson instructions as well as the freebie.

Happy back to school!
