I love movies and so do our students! I LOVE math and when I can find math in movies it is so much fun to bring it into the classroom. Today we had our first Movie Math of the year. It was Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone!
In this scene Professor Dumbledoor is awarding the House Cup, but has some last minute points to award to some students. We made a chart at the start of the video and paused the video throughout to do our math together.
After all of the points are added up Gryffindor is no longer in 4th place, but has won the House Cup!
The kids loved it and honestly I did too!
