This four-page rubric describes in detail what students should do to complete this project. It also has the guidelines for scoring the project in ten different categories.


In the mathematical autobiography project, students are given creative freedom in describing their formative experiences, favorite memories, and overall attitudes about math. This could take the form of a rap, a poem, the construction of a model, or even a funny skit. In addition to the class presentation, students compose a one-page written explanation of their math autobiography. The third and final piece of the math autobiography is a visual depiction of the student engaged in some sort of mathematical activity.
