Ideas for Middle School Math Projects

Here is a list of the 4 projects I have had the most success with. I try to use/create projects that are fun and connect math to the world in a meaningful and interesting way.

#1. Use scientific notation to analyze human impact on the environment.

#2. Be an epidemiologist and use statistics to study a zombie outbreak!

Best for: 6th grade statistics

#3. Learn about mathematical art and create your own using geometric transformations:

Best for: 8th grade math and geometry

Inspire kids with these resources by exposing them to geometric art from around the world

Digital desmos version of the project available here.

#4. Be a fashion designer and create a graphic design using linear equations:

Best for: 8th grade math and Algebra. Could easily be modified to include more complex equations for higher level math.

Always happy to hear from readers!
