My Students Can...

Super ball vs. Tennis Ball experiment

My students conducted an experiment in measuring the “bounciness” of two types of balls.  They then graphed the results and were able to determine which type of ball had the greater degree of “bounciness.” This experiment allowed students to experience the math concepts through multiple learning styles: kinesthetically, interpersonally/verbally, logically and visually.

Algebraic Thinking

My students are able to use mathematical manipulatives to create models which support their understanding of mathematical concepts.  Here, the students have used algebra tiles to represent an equation, and collect like terms.
