Math Money

Found in: math; motivating students

I had a major problem with tardies in my Basic Algebra class, so I implemented a 'math money' system. The results have been great. Students receive a math dollar each day they are on time for class and have all the appropriate materials for class. They can earn extra money by correctly answering the problem of the week from the bulletin board or catching my mistakes on the overhead. I also give five math dollars for each half hour they work with me before or after school. They must pay for special privileges throughout the year. At the end of the year, I have an auction of items donated by local businesses. The students love it.
