+ How can the challenges be used in class?
Cashtivity can be used to help review, introduce math skills or test math skills. It is meant to be used as a supplement for teachers and will help students to understand real life challenges.
+ Does Cashtivity support learning in other areas than math?
Yes! Cashtivity supports learning in many different areas, like science, nutrition, and music, through real life challenges within all kinds of professions.
+ How do I differentiate?
Differentiate through student groups. Organise students into groups according to strengths & skill levels. You can provide extension questions to advanced student groups or contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request questions.
+ Is Cashtivity Project Based Learning?
Yes! From Cashtivity’s research, teachers have a need for tools that provide content that teachers can teach in their own way during a 45 min class period. Our model for project based learning is designed to fill this void in the classroom. For example, students will learn how to negotiate Steph Curry's next contract using math skills directly linked to their math class.
+ How much does it cost?
Cashtivity is free to start. Our middle school bundle of challenges which is standards aligned will be released during the Fall. Please contact us at email@example.com for more details.
