This is a repost ... I still love thinking about favorite numbers, unusual numbers, and such!
I wrote about this idea a couple of years ago ... about exploring students' favorite number ... and why. Surprisingly there is a research project with more than 30,000 results. The favorite number among those 30,000 is .... seven!
Of course, Sheldon, of Big Bang Theory episodes, would disagree ... and say the rest of the world is wrong! His favorite number is ... 73!
Then I ran across this visual in Twitter. It adds interest to our favorite number exploration!
I saw online that one teacher turned "my favorite number" into a class project. The requirements are good late elementary, early middle school math concepts. I wonder how it might also be tweaked to be a good algebra mini-project?!?
Do you have a favorite number??
