Math Madness

This year we have decided to try something new to motivate the students.  We have created "March Madness."  This is an opportunity for parents to come into the classroom and talk about how they use math in their daily lives.  It is also giving the students an opportunity to learn about different careers.  As an added bonus, the student who is represented by the parent/speaker gets a day off from math!  So far we have heard from an electrician, farmers/ranchers, a restaurant employee, a government worker for the Natural Resources Service.  It has been so much fun!

A Little Bit of Luck

The students finished their window art projects today. It was a sticky project, but I think they turned out neat! We can't wait to see them hanging in our windows.
