My Students

My students think critically about information presented to them and draw their own conclusions. They operate well in the midst of differences, knowing not everyone will have the same beliefs/outlook, and my students respect that. They listen to an array of music. They challenge each other in conversation. They are curious and brave during dialogues about race. They love and support each other in life and content. They teach each other chess and how to solve the Rubik's cube. They are six teams (periods) strong.

My Project

Games include multiple sets of Catan, Monopoly, Anti-Monopoly, Mah Jong, Planet, Scrabble, Chickapig, Cards, Forbidden Desert, Chess, Code Names, and more!

We play each of these games.

Then, we review/learn a related math topic. For example, during our Catan unit, we studied permutations and combinations. During our Monopoly unit, we explored loans through the home buying process and studied exponential equations. And so on...

The game truly acts as stress relief, as they get to play games. However, it also bears a good amount of challenging thought, as students determine the best strategy and they connect a math skill to their gameplay.
