TACKLING THE COMMOM CORE STANDARDS WITH NO TIME WASTED


High School students get a head start on common core state standards initiative through hands-on activities that reflect the knowledge and skills needed for success in college and careers.  Student’s in Ms. Bastek’s Integrated Algebra I class began the school year with an ancient China puzzle consisting of seven tangram pieces.  Students were encouraged to work cooperatively to record all possible  solutions of several given puzzles.  This activity refined problem-solving strategies of predicting; thinking logically; and checking, revising, and recording results.  It is the start of an exciting school year!
