Teaching 7th grade level math is a lot of fun because there's a bunch of different concepts to teach and so much fun you can have teaching them! One of the hard things though that I've had in the past is getting my students to understand the difference between a permutation and a combination...and apply it..... So I made this math lab.... and it was awesome (in my own opinion!)
Students will explore the difference between permutations and combinations by completing a hands-on math lab involving real-life senarios of permutations and combinations.
* Construction paper (for the pizza toppings and flowers)
* Math Lab on "Get It Order: Permutations & Combinations" ($1 USD)
It was awesome to see the kids actually grasp the difference between the permutations and combinations and be able to complete problems involving both permutations AND combinations on the same paper.
