SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — After weeks of hard work, Sullivan Middle School students got to see their project come to life, thanks to geometry.
Sixth graders have been using math to build 2-D and 3-D parts in a geometro city. The project entailed students from all five classes working in different roles within the community.
On Wednesday, each section was put together to make the final product.
Math teacher, Paige Shake, said this project helped the students improve their communication and teamwork skills.
Shake adds that students were also tested at the end of the year and geometry scores improved drastically.
“I think doing this at the end of the year as we did, they trusted us, we trusted them and we had that relationship where we could do a project-based learning activity with them. We’re so grateful we took the time and the effort and they put so much into it. They exceeded our expectations,” Shake said.
This was the first year for the project, but Shake and her colleagues are confident this may become a yearly tradition.
