Grant Writers to the Zoo with you


In one of my classes a student said we should take a field trip. I told him something that applies to all classes. If you can make a trip relate to the cirriculum, the grant writers will find the money to make it happen. Algebra I is moving on and next we will tackle tickets problems with systems of equations and inequalities. Geometry will be working on 45-45-90 triangles and 30-60-90 triangles. If you find a trip that works I will run it by the bosses and then run with it. Reply with ideas and we shall discuss later or bring them to my attention before school or after school.

we should go into boston for the day and try to find objects that create a trianlges that we are studying. We could bring a video camera and make a documentary outta it for furture classes or something like that.

i think we should lie about it and then they will think there is a genuine mathematical relation to the field trip and we can go. Everbody wins. And as long as nobody says anything, we'll get away with it.

six flags! we could calcualte the speed of the rides and find shapes within the park...& we could get away with it!

first of all you spelt curricullum wrong, and what is the picture of? geeze, anyway six flags would be an awesome trip, we could measure stuff and say they're triangular. and thats not fair, ticket problems? thats such an easy and fun field trip, you should move onto like radicals..yeah, try to find a fun field trip about those. WE should start circles. that would work when we go to 6 flags. yeah.

eanderson said...

Circles are coming soon. In Calc classes the students go to SIX Flags. I don't think the overlap would be fit the map. Thanks for the insight EAnderson. Keep the ideas coming.
