Problem based learning that tie into multiple competencies in Mathematics 8

Blake and I have been working to create and refine activities and tasks that align with the curricular competencies and engage all students in applying their skills and knowledge of course content. This year we focused our attention and energy to the math 8 setting. In this participatory workshop, we will share a few of our more successful projects together with rubrics, assessment plan and samples of student work.
