It can be differentiated to your grade level in math depending on the subject of the equations you choose (e.g. addition, decimals, roots...).
Students create math equations whose results equal their answers to facts about themselves.
They create a colorful Hexaflexagon based on their answers and the glyph directions.
Students give their "Math about me" pages to the teacher and enjoy their Hexaflexagons.
The teacher, after checking, will distribute the "Math about me" pages to the students. Everyone will receive a different person’s page to solve the problems and match the "Math about me” page with the Hexaflexagon to discover the name of the person they have information about.
This is a fun way for kids to get to know each other and to review math skills.
