    I am a teacher at a private school. I teach both History and Math. The school wants us to incorporate more projects and interactive learning in our classrooms. I was coming up with math projects and history projects but when I came across a way to teach the stock market with math at the same time we would be studying the 1920's it only seemed to make the most sense to try my best to cross the projects to cover both subjects.

    In history we are studying 1850 to current day and the math ranges quite a bit so anything algebra or younger would be fine. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    If you want to give me your email address, I'll be happy to pass on the Algebra stuff I've found so far this year. I'm not sure that relating any of it to history would be anything but quite a stretch.

    I realize you can't PM yet. If you post it for 5 minutes, I'll keep an eye on this thread and you can delete it.

    OK, I wasn't thinking.

    Why not post a bit, and we can try again over the weekend?

    ag1052, if it's any consolation, A to Z does that to everyone.

    Alice, ag1052 may not be able to initiate PMs yet, but receiving should be another matter: you could fire the first shot, so to speak.
