4 Math Comic Strip [DUE 22 November 2013] DIRECTIONS: SAW . Use separate paper if needed.

Funny math project.

All must students create a cartoon based on a mathematical concept from a recent unit (subtraction, addition, multiplication, division, time, money, comparing numbers and so on). All students must draw a comic strip based on a math concept with 10 panels. The panels must have clearly drawn characters, an explanation of a math technique, concept or rule, and they include some elements of humor, irony or drama in the cartoon. Each panel must contain or demonstrate a mathematical concept. For example, students create a masked hero who catches a bank robber, adding and subtracting money sums throughout the piece as well as including the time the banker robber tried to rob the bank and the time the superhero saved the customers from the bank robber. This is a school project; therefore, violence should not be depicted in this project. Students are allowed to combine math with their favorite characters, such as superheroes or Saturday morning cartoon show favorites.

Our comic strip project is due on November 22, 2013.

I will not accept projects after this date. Please click on the project tab to find out more information about this project. Please keep in mind that the math concepts that should be on your child's comic strip must be concepts that we have learned so far in the fourth grade. You may use previous homework sheets as a guide. I do not want to see any concepts that was not taught in my class or is not fourth grade content on the comic strip. Again on your homework sheets you will find all of the concepts that we have covered so far. Any of those concepts can be used on in the comic strip to name a few, factor trees, least common multiple, greatest common factor, division, four digit subtraction and addition, composite numbers, fact family, time, calendar, money, prime numbers, multiplication, story problems, place value any concept that we have covered in the fourth grade is acceptable. The comic strip project will be counted has a test grade.

Each student will create a hand drawn comic strip to show understanding of a specific mathematical concept. 1point = 5% Exceeds 4 pts Panel Total Comic strip has a minimum of 10 panels (boxes) Exceeds Each panel clearly shows the mathematical concept. By reading this comic strip, one would have a better understanding of the math concept. Meets 3pts Comic strip has 7 to 9 panels Meets 7 to 9 panels have little to do with the mathematical concept. By reading this comic strip, one would not understand the math concept being presented. Meets The comic strip is missing one of the following elements: * this rubric sheet * a comic strip title * student's name as author on the front of project Meets The comic strip is not drawn neatly. It is evident that adequate time was not spent on the comic strip's presentation. Overall appearance is average. Some color is notice in the comic strip. Meets The comic strip has unique, well drawn characters (not stick figures) but little humor or drama in the wording. Cartoon generates little interest in the subject. Meets Does not meet 2 or less points Comic strip has 6 or less panels Does Not Meet 6 or less panels have nothing to do with the mathematical concept. By reading this comic strip, one would gain no clear understanding of the math concept being presented.
