If I Had a Hammer demonstration

Today we were fortunate to host a visitor in our middle school math class to demonstrate the "If I Had a Hammer" math curriculum.  If you'd like to see a demonstration of this, go to the website here.

I really enjoyed seeing how he used technology and manipulatives to teach measurement, fractions and more.  The students really grasped what he was teaching from a visual, audio and tactile point of view. 

Here are a few photographs of our students interacting with the demonstration.

I am excited to see how we are able to incorporate real life application of math concepts into our classrooms. Making house plans, building scale models, calculating mortgage rates and more are all ways to help our students learn how they actually WILL use math each day.
