CRUSADERS IN (AND OUT OF) THE CLASSROOM

Ms. Varnerin's Algebra I Honors class finished their 5th "Explain a Problem" video project. Students were given very challenging real world problems about exponential growth and decay. Even through this challenging time of Remote Learning, the class was able to attend small group video conferences so that they could work as a team to solve their group's assigned problem. It was almost like we were in the classroom still. You guys have worked so hard, progressed so much in articulating your mathematical reasoning and I am blown away at how AMAZING these came out! You guys are rockstars!

The 6th Grade Dragon Team completed an assignment entitled Circle Art. The students read articles on how circles are used in different occupations, like artists, theologist, architectures, philosophers, engineers, and mathematicians. They had a writing assignment and created art from circles.
