This is a task from the Illustrative Mathematics website that is one part of a complete illustration of the standard to which it is aligned. Each task has at least one solution and some commentary that addresses important asects of the task and its potential use. Here are the first few lines of the commentary for this task: Michelle, Hillary, and Cory created a YouTube video, and have a plan to get as many people to watch it as possible. They will each share the video with...

This lesson is for a math classroom, but can be adapted to fit any grade, subject, or content. In this lesson, students will use an iPad and its features: Keynote, Pages, Garageband, Numbers, Presentation, and iMovie. Students will use 3 of those features/programs to create a video lesson consisting of several examples from a topic of their choice. This project is in place of a term final, so their chosen topic should be from their current term.Image citation: The image is one I created.
