PLYMOUTH â€” Riverside Intermediate School teacher Tara Sharp has learned over her 15 years of teaching that the best way to keep students engaged is by showing how math relates to the real world.
This year, Sharp challenged her 16 advanced math students, whom she divided into two groups, to build dog houses. Sharp said she developed the project plans three years ago and included them into the program for the first time last year. She said this year the project is being done on a much larger scale.
Culver Community students â€śwave their hands up in the airâ€ť for the CCHS choral department production of Disneyâ€™s â€śHigh School Musicalâ€ť May 28 and 29, in the high school auditorium.
