Getting Started
  • Brainstorm math words to use as search terms.
  • Encourage students to think about words describing shapes (octagon, triangle, pentagon, cylinder, square), large numbers (thousand, million), measurement devices (abacus, ruler, scale, calculator), and mathematical terms (intersect, parallel, circumference, diameter).
  • Hunt for images across the American Memory Collections using these terms.
