Math skills put into play

Seventh graders love to play the game Four Square during Team Time. Our school had one court, lots of students in line to play, and about twenty-two minutes to play. Mrs. Hooker's Math 1 class was given the challenge of creating another Four Square court to provide more opportunities for play. The students measured the old court, determined the amount of paint and materials needed, taped off the space, painted, cleaned, remeasured, and had a great time. Not only did students improve their math skills, they improved their team building skills as well.

Math Properties

The 7th Grade Math curriculum covers The Number System, Expressions and Equations, Geometry and Statistics and Probability.  In conjunction with The Number System, students were given the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the properties by creatively using symbols to represent the properties.   The projects featured a wide variety of creative symbols – different candy, pasta shapes, ice cream flavors, pop-up stickers, dry cereal and crayons to name a few.     The project offered a way to reinforce student understanding of the properties while also allowing a fun opportunity for student creativity in math.   Please stop by the 7th grade hallway and view some of these outstanding projects!
