Someone left me a comment asking when I was going to post day 2 and 3 of my Pre-Algebra Road Trip Project. Sorry I'm so late in posting this. I'd totally forgot about it while getting everything ready for the upcoming school year. Today's Friday. Open house is on Tuesday evening. And, school starts on Thursday! I'm so excited, but I also realize just how much stuff I have to get one before school starts!

Looking back at Day 2 and 3, there are a ton of little things I would change. I actually changed the rental car problem on Day 3 because my students were having a ton of trouble with it. I just did a flat rate per day.
This project is easily adjusted based on your time limitations and the level of your students. This was never intended on being a 3-day project. It just sort of evolved into one. My 8th graders really enjoyed it. My cooperating teacher enjoyed it. My University Supervisor even observed me on Day 3 of the project. The lesson was a little more chaotic than I had planned, but my supervisor complimented me on the project. He even asked for electronic copies of the files to send to some math teachers in China.
