We are a Title I school thats located in Atlanta, GA. Our school is also IB ( International Baccalaureate ) PYP accredited.
My creative students work collaboratively towards developing unique models that display their scientific findings.
These young science professors are brilliant, hardworking, and thought-provoking students. As young scientist, they delve through researching and probing for answers to higher-level questions. These students are well loved by parents, teachers and guest college students who work alongside them as they complete scientific research. The school is a S.T.E.A.M. based schools whose curriculum is heavily reliant on correlating base core studies to learning. The school has spent lots of energy towards developing lessons that allow students to explore all areas of S.T.E.A.M. In doing so, our students are more engaged and focused in all of their subject core areas. This concentration has yielded great results with students showing interest in S.T.E.A. M. careers and better test scores.
Students will use their rulers, crayons, markers and digital cameras to help learn more about the world of mathematics. Drawing on their memory students will develop tessellation images which they will color in therefore, creating a design. Students will detail how tessellation patterns when placed together create repeated patterns and equivalents. Referencing their textbooks students will use their markers and crayons to solve tessellation equations. Using their brilliant minds, students will create tessellated shapes on their own which will be shaded in using markers or crayons. Using the digital camera students will photograph their tessellation patterns for a power-point presentation. These special designs will be displayed via an LCD projector and both teacher and students will discuss the concept tessellation for further understanding. Students having completed their tessellation project will learn how to take ownership of their own learning. Students will also learn how to explore and discover new areas of creating designs that are connected to mathematics.
