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.
