Math Moves You
"Math Moves You" is an opportunity for students to apply their math skills in the real world. Students used estimation, measurement, comparison, predicting and observational skills, as they walked an open field where vehicles were parked. They included a 4 ton Idaho potato on a truck, Guinness Book of World Record Banana Car from Planet Smoothie, Boston Lobster Feast Car, a LMTV vehicle, Truly Nolen mouse car, 1945 Ford Truck, Fire Truck, Two Men and a Truck, and many others.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We are fortunate to have a dynamic parent team and community members that worked together to make this happen. Communication, organization, and asigning jobs made it a success.
