Panther Lake Celebrates Math Night!

On November 17th, more than one hundred fifty Panther Lake students and their families gathered together to become toymakers! They created their very own rotating gymnast toy using a yard stick, a clothes pin, a couple of blocks and their imaginations. While building they used measurement, patterning, geometry, angles, multiplication and ratios. This night of fabulous math fun and was led by expert toymaker and mathematician Rick Hartman from the Build a Toy Workshop. Panther students also enjoyed a highly engaging math centered assembly called the Toy That Math Built, which culminated in a giant, moveable mechanical robot with an amazing surprise finale. This event was sponsored by Title I.
