Road Sign Math
Road signs show the way to making math!
GRADE LEVEL: 6-8, 9-12, Parents


Road Sign Math, as the name suggests, uses road signs to create math problems.
The site has a very simple design with a top menu bar that leads to the main sections. It also has a list of categories on the left side of the main page.

Road Sign Math provides teachers and students with materials for problem solving. Users have photographed road signs and use all of the numbers on the signs to create equations. The rules for Road Sign Math are available on the site. The photographs could be used in the classroom with the equations covered to allow students to create their own equations. Alternatively, students could go on a scavenger hunt around their hometown to find interesting signs to share with the class. Students could submit the best signs and equations that they find to the site for publication. This is also a great fun and educational activity for parents to do with their kids on road trips.
