You can create:

  • Item/idea1
  • Item/idea2

How?
This is the problem Robyn is doing with her small groups: http://mathnotations.blogspot.com/2008/09/remainders-and-number-theory-challenges.html  What can people author there? Maybe they can pose their own remainder problems or lemmas. Maybe, as they pose such problems, they can use remainders as representations for something (e.g. 12 notes, 7 rainbow colors, shapes, letters and so on) and create representational art or music out of their problems. Robyn thinks if we can come up with a good graphical representation of LCMs, it can be interesting.

Why?
Because... (reasons the activity is valuable to people)

As you go

  • Things to notice
