In the 2015-2016 school year, I decided to create a Harry Potter themed classroom for my students since it is something I love and wanted to share with others. I called it, Hogwarts School of Mathematics.
I renamed each Hogwarts house after a Mathematician that added a great deal of value to the concepts I would be teaching throughout the school year. In my Foundations of College Algebra class, I even had them write a brief essay about their “house founder” to expand their knowledge of the history of Mathematics.
I used Adobe Photoshop to create posters and signs that were hung around the classroom for inspiration and decor. I developed a classroom economy with a themed monetary and class jobs system. I also themed all of my planners and documents around the books and the movies.Monthly Estimate No. 1
