Teachers at LMS have been busily working this school year to make sure all students have the opportunity to receive everything they need to master the objectives and competencies of their subject area. With the school year winding down and everyone anticipating the much needed summer break, how can we keep our students focused to finish the year strong and to “show off” all the knowledge they have obtained over the course of the school year? Both 7th and 8th grade Math teachers prepared a Blitz day to take place the day before the state test is administered to make one more attempt at reinforcing the knowledge learned in an exciting and fun way. What better way to do this than to focus on math all day long. See below for some of the activities pictured: Linear Equations Jeopardy in one of our English teacher’s classroom, Equations relay and Functions task cards in the gym, and Angles in the outdoor classroom. These are just some of the activities designed for this fun day. Yes, this took a lot of hard work and preparation by our fabulous math teachers and great team work of various subject area teachers all working on math for the day to make this day possible.
I’ll leave you with this Haiku from retired Math teacher, Yolanda Marín-Parker:
Our world without math,
Like dividing by zero,
Exist? – it cannot!
