Purpose: Students will actually realize how much time they spend on activities in a given 24-hour period.
Goal: The student will:
Previous Knowledge: Basic Spreadsheet Skills, Basic Math skills - addition, division
Materials: Worksheet - 'Time Management'
Time Required: 2 - 3 weeks depending on your students; it has been done in less time
Grading Procedure: This is up to each individual teacher
This activity is a by-product of an activity that I received at 'Expanding Your Horizons' '96. I felt that the activity that Jan Marie Casey, Math teacher at Paul Revere Middle School in Houston I.S.D. used could be modified to use with computers. Not only can we discuss study skills, math skills, but they will also learn how to manage time. The accompanying spreadsheet example helps the students actually see how they spend time. According to Jan Marie Casey, "The beauty of this activity is no two students' data is exactly alike and therefore there will be less cheating."
*** You and/or your students may come up with some other categories to include their activities in.
*** You may also want your class to do this for a longer period than a 24-hour day.
