Story of 1


I was clued in to the existence of The Story of 1 a couple of weeks ago from my twitter PLN. I had my sub show it to my algebra 1 classes when I was out of town, and it seemed to go well. Then, one of my colleagues was sick this week and did the same lesson. Her sub said that the students were really engaged with the movie. I couldn't find a question guide on-line for it (though I didn't search all that long), so I made one up.

Whew! Not too many math movies around I'd consider showing my kids, but this one looks great! And I love your questions. Thank you.

No problem. I hope they enjoy it and maybe even get some of the jokes.

Thanks for sharing. What program should I use to open the worksheet you created for The Story of 1?

It's just a Word file. I think the extension got removed somehow. If you add a .doc to it, or just force MS Word to open it, it should be fine.
