Second-grade teacher Aria Nevin worked with students on their math block during main lesson on Tuesday, March 20, 2012. Using different approaches from hand games and circle exercises to counting gems and drawing pictures, students learn to solve math equations creatively. Students focus intensely on not just memorizing answers but experiencing math with their bodies through movement exercises. Students worked with number patterns, multiplication and division tables, as well as addition and subtraction. They also practiced learning how to borrow and carry over numbers while adding and subtracting three digit numbers.
