I work in one of the largest intercity school districts in Ohio. I have the pleasure of working with over 400 students in my school. The students in my classes strive for excellence in Math. They all care about improving their math skills by constantly making efforts.
I would like the scholars to transfer this enthusiasm into running.
When I started the running with the students I couldn't get one student to run with me. They told me we don't run, I said yes we do. I wouldn't let it go, each student came to me and said I will give it a try. The students come from various backgrounds and families. Even though we have all these great students we still have a lot of work ahead of us. Our students are highly motivated to run since they so me running an overweight fifty something woman. They strive to beat the leader by using math skill while running. My students are bright, ambitious, and determined to win.
My team completed their first 5k run this past fall; however they kept asking how far do we have to go. This project will help the scholars keep track of their distance by using the fitbit flex tracker.
Most of the team ran and walked the 5k, this next attempt we would like to run the whole 5k.
The fitbit will keep them motivated by showing their distance to the finish line. Theirs nothing like a good competition among the team . The fastest runner across the finish line will win the shoes and the suit. This will keep them practicing for the next run until this becomes a routine for them.
