My Students

My students from Lowell, Massachusetts are part of a community of learners where our philosophy is to teach students and standards, not programs.

So many of our students learn best when they can meanfully interact with what they are learning.

Our school's math curriculum has been built by pulling from various programs and through the ingenuity of our teachers. We take direct feedback from our students in an ever-going quest to find the best materials and experiences to help our students learn. My students are excited to learn, and love to engage with visual and kinesthetic opportunities in the math class.

Having a variety of tools not only helps my students to learn math content, but also empowers them to select when and how to use the tools. This act of thinking, constructing knowledge, and applying learning to new and unique situations is as important, if not more important than remembering information. It is also our goal to prepare our students to leave our school being able to think and problem-solve.

My Project

AngLegs will provide my students the opportunity to build polygons and angles. By attaching legs of different sizes, students will explore how triangles can be classified by side length. The flexibility of the tools will allow students to manipulate angle measures, seamlessly transforming a rhombus into a square or a rectangle into a parallelogram. Students will learn that the length of the angle arms does not affect the size of the angle as they experiment and measure with protractors.

AngLegs will give my students a chance to explore plane geometry and measurement in a kinesthetic and highly-engaging way.

By constructing shapes and angles, students will have more involvement and understand the content on a deeper level.
