At our school, teachers engage students and equip them with critical thinking, problem solving, creative and collaborative skills to ultimately establish connections between the school, work place, local community and the global economy. It is an innovative approach to the world and a critical way to understand, explore and engage with the world and then have the capacity to change the world. These students are determined to utilize mathematics skills to help them solve real world problems.
STEM students like a variety of tools to solve math problems. Dry erase markers allow students to efficiently solve problems and share ideas as a group and on individual white boards. Dry erase utensils allow for collaborative work during project-based learning activities.
iPads are used daily for problem solving, research, writing papers, taking notes and submitting assignments.
Sometimes the iPads batteries run out in the middle of class and students need a charge. By providing students with an iPad charging station, students will be able continue working at the charging station.
"Pass the Pigs" is a fun, engaging and interactive game for students to play with a group while working on mental math skills. Students roll the Pigs and earn points based on whether the pigs land as a Trotter, Razorback, Snoutter, Oinker and Pig-Out. Let the fun begin!
