"We use ALEXS computer Math program to accelerate our students in Math. This program allows students to move at their own pace as they master concepts and skills."
"We do a Pay It Forward Project. I give them $5 they can take it for their project or not. The find a cause, explain the process, so it can be passed on. They are required to write a one page paper and give a speech or presentation. It is their semester test in our class which has a service component."
"I have students create pyramids and prisms using toothpicks and dots. Students record the number of faces, vertices and edges. I encourage students to look for patterns in their data. I tell them about Euler's formula and let them know it uses two of the four operations and one number. I let them try to discover the formula themselves. After four to six students discover it I give them more clues so all students are successful."
