Valentine's Day Math Activities

Slope-intercept heart pennant

Holidays can be SO tricky to navigate, especially when teenage hormones are involved! Add in boxes of chocolate, balloons and giant fuzzy teddy bears and it's a recipe for little [to no] work getting done. I asked some math friends if they had any fun, Valentine's Day-themed activities to keep students working on this highly distactible day. They sent over some great stuff, all of which you can see below. 

Above is a slope-intercept hearts pennant where students graph and write the equations of linear functions. And here is a photo my friend Mandy at Math Dyal sent to me. She did the activity with her students and used the hearts to decorate her classroom door (there are tabs on the hearts to hang them from string, too). 



And how fun would this Polynomial Valentine's Day coloring activity from Math Dyal's be during a polynomials unit in Algebra or Algebra 2?
