This year St. Mary’s students participated in a Math Festival. The purpose was to help them see the many different and unusual sides of math; the sides that are fun, colorful, exciting, and beautiful. Students made bouquets of paper flowers, jumped frogs across lily pads, explored ancient Chinese strategy games, and so much more. Many thanks to the teachers, students, UNO Noyce scholars (pre-service teachers who will teaching math when they graduate), and parent and community volunteers who made this event so much fun! It was a blast. Kids from all grades were there. Becky Ham our Middle School Math teacher says, “We will definitely do something like this again, although it could be math-centered or STEAM-centered, or something else similar. It will be fun, whatever it is.” Something to look forward to next year. For more photos click here.
