Biography

This project involved 3rd-5th grade students and Math teachers at our elementary. The purpose of the project was to integrate hands-on activities during Math instruction. The Math Department purchased Mango Math, which is Deluxe Math Crates to engage students in learning. The ARI teacher-leader trained 3rd-5th grade Math teachers on the project; how to integrate the materials; as well as assisted them as needed. The activities will require students to think critically aboutMath, and help them master the Common Core and NCTM standards. Teachers use these activities while teaching specific units that align to the KCAS.
