contentsWhat Is a Math Jewel?

A math jewel is a multi-faceted resource with sparkling qualities.

It's a math jewel if....

1)   I can explore and "learn by doing" in open-ended ways.

2)   I am in control.

3)   I'm having fun without games.

4)   I would enjoy this activity even if I were older or younger.

5)   I can explore this activity better on the computer than off.

6)   I can read and understand the text.

7)   I can be creative.

8)   I see real-world connections.

9)   I can share ideas or data with classmates or with students
      from far away.

10)  I understand.

(If I've found a math jewel... how many of these facets does it have?)
