One Best Thing: Strengthening Number Sense Skills with Global Math Task Tech Challenges
Connecting to share the learning continues to be a passion of mine. I love to connect with teachers to share ideas and activities, but connecting students to share the learning with an authentic audience is super rewarding for me! The Global Math Task Tech Challenge has been an ever evolving #onebestthing project that helps me to do both!

Using Google Slides to create a "website" has helped make designing the math challenges easier and faster to share with others. GMTTC has gone through several updates since first designing the project in 2015. For the 2024 new year, I used Microsoft Designer and my love of Legos to design a new character for the logo image of the challenge. Teachers can find the number challenges on the project's X(Twitter).Using the amazing Seesaw Learning Journal platform, I now create Seesaw Activities that make it even easier for teachers to share the Global Math Task Challenges with their students. The link to the challenge is included in the X(Twitter) post each time. However, teachers can easily search the Seesaw Community Library using the #gmttc hashtag to find all of the newly shared challenges.
Students can work independently or in groups to find solution paths for the challenges. I LOVE how amazed they are when they discover that many times there is more than one way to create a solution for the target numbers. The ability to manipulate the numbers and math operations with discussions on how they found the solutions help develop critical number sense skills.
