On Thursday is our first annual BCS Mathlympics challenge. Students are taking the entire day to compete in various ways between Crews so they can be marked the winners! Part of the challenges is something called Breakout EDU - a puzzle-based activity we made up involving actual locks and boxes! I am super psyched to see this take place and will be enthusiastic whenever the students complete a clue!
I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
