Photograph Math - #mathphotoaday

Thanks to a recent Instragram from Andy McKiel  I learned about a neat mathematics and photography project started by a grade 3 class in Thompson, Manitoba. The project asks students to take photographs of things representing various topics and concepts in elementary school level mathematics. There is a different prompt for each day in May. The first day asks students to take a picture of a polygon. Click here to see the whole calendar.

Applications for Education
Having your students participate in a Math Photo A Day project could be a good way to review what they've learned throughout the year. Your students don't have to post their pictures publicly in order to make the project meaningful. You could simply have them share their pictures with you through a shared Google Drive, Dropbox, or eduClipper folder.
