If you teach middle school, brace yourself for the craziness that is Valentine's Day celebrated at school tomorrow! Heart shaped suckers, teddy bears, chocolate, and a few (hopefully minimal) tears.
Instead of fighting it, embrace the mathiness that can be squeezed out of this heart-filled holiday!
Here are a few resources to use:
1. Send a Math-o-Gram.
Love math? Love Desmos? You can send your students (or friends) a heart themed graph!
2. Make a Mathy Valentine
Use transformations to rotate your way to your students' hearts.
3. Check out these other heart-shaped graphing activities
I found these NCTM Illuuminations graphing actives a few years ago.
4. Graph this equation in Desmos:
(this was a fun one for my 6th graders... just to figure out how to type in the correct symbols!)
5. Mobius Strip Hearts?! Yes!
Happy Valentine's Day! <3
