Ever fill a high school cafeteria on a beautiful Saturday morning with 5th graders looking forward to 4 hours of math? The Ingenuity Project in Baltimore, Maryland did.
The genius was to use Mathopoly and math competitions to challenge the students to solve problems while they were having fun.
In the high school gym a wrestling takedown tournament was challenging students to throw their opponents to the mat. Here in the cafeteria, students were wrestling with their understanding of math operations and concepts with the sharp concentration and competitive eagerness of athletes.
Enjoy watching their concentration and jubilation.
