Idita Math, a project from Larson Elementary School, Wasilla, Alaska.
Quick summary of the project: Students were challenged to complete math goals at home and ‘race from Anchorage to Nome’ as they practiced their math basic skills. Teachers created math goals according to the needs of the students. Overall, the project goal was to help students develop stronger math skills while involved in an Iditarod thematic project.
On the final day of the project, a celebration and activity was held. Students participated in an Iditarod Race.
Thanks goes out to Sara Lamont for an update on this project and to the principal,the teachers, and the students, for working hard to keep math a priority at their school!
