Linear Learning: EWS Teacher Brings Math Lesson to Life with Tricycle Race
Middle school math class usually involves rulers, calculators and graph paper.
The Emery/Weiner School has altered that equation by adding six tricycles, four cones and one strategically placed GoPro camera.
Eighth-grade teacher Elle Bray’s inaugural Great Math 8 Tricycle Race took off with lots of fanfare and excitement on the school campus Oct 31.
“I feel like the kids really enjoyed it and saw the connection with math. I am really proud of what the kids were able to learn. They’ve done some very high-level work and have a deep understanding,” says Bray.
