Made 4 Math Monday!

I finally made something for Made 4 Math Monday. I've been interested in the examples I've seen on twitter and on blogs about using larger whiteboards in class. I have a class set of the individual white boards, and I like to use them for quick formative assessments in class. I like the idea of using the larger whiteboards for group work. I hope to use them for both collaborative problem solving sessions and for the mistake game.

So I bought three marker board/wainscoting boards from Lowes, and had the guy cut them each in half. That gave me six nice sized boards. Then I took colored duck tape and edged them. I chose purple and yellow because they are my school's colors. Here they are:


  1. Love the size of these boards. Great for multiple students to work together or lots of thinking room.

  2. How big are your boards? I love how the duct tape really finishes them off! This reminds me that I need to go buy some to use this year.

    1. They're 24 inches by 32 inches. The boards I bought were the ones called marker board, and they were 4' by 32".

  3. Love this idea! I have small boards but I love the idea of having groups present using larger boards. Great post! Thanks!

  4. I love the idea of edging them with duct tape!!
