Bring the excitement of hands-on mathematics to your school with Math Midway 2 Go (MM2GO)! The six MM2GO exhibits can visit your school. MoMath has selected a focus exhibit for each grade. See below for K-8 lesson plans that include activities for before, during, and after your MM2GO visit as well as connections to the Common Core State Standards.

|3rd||Miles of Tiles||Explore fractions and shapes.||Download|
|4th||Miles of Tiles||Explore shapes and symmetry, with a focus on tessellations.||Download|
|5th||Organ Function Grinder||Explore rules and operations, preparing for later study of functions.||Download|
|6th||Number Line Tightrope||Explore number groups, including prime numbers, squares and cubes, and more unusual number families, such as pizza and Fibonacci numbers.||Download|
|7th||Ring of Fire||Explore the relationship between two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes, with a focus on cross-sections.||Download|
|8th||Organ Function Grinder||Explore inputs, outputs, and functions in a hands-on format, including a preview of nested functions.||Download|
|Algebra||Number Line Tightrope||Explore sets and recursive functions through the study of number families.||Download|
|Geometry||Miles of Tiles||Explore geometric constructions and proofs with a focus on why shapes do or do not tessellate the plane.||Download|
|Pre-Calculus & Trigonometry||Funny Face||The Common Core State Standards do not extend to learning standards for trigonometry and pre-calculus. This lesson plan explores linear, polynomial, rational, and trigonometric functions in both Cartesian and polar coordinates.||Coming soon|
|Calculus||Roller Graphicoaster||Explore and build functions that model relationships between two quantities in the context of physical problems.||Download|
