7th Grade Pre-Algebra
Seventh Grade Pre-Algebra students at South Middle School (SMS) are currently working with scale and proportion. The students spent time working on the math aspect and then carrying over those skills to work with blue prints and building designs. Students were challenged to create a blueprint of their bedrooms using appropriate scale and then translated that work to a three dimensional drawing program in the computer labs called Google SketchUp. Math teachers at SMS try to incorporate real world learning into their lessons to show students the power of understanding math in their future careers.
