Calculus Students Share Passion For Math With Elementary Students

On Monday, June 6, students from George Schneider’s calculus classes visited Homer Elementary School to share a bit of their love of mathematics with the young students. Using guidelines from the New York State Common Core Mathematics Standards, the calculus students planned and conducted hands-on geometry activities with students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades. The high school students were challenged to break down geometry skills and concepts in a way that young learners could understand them. For their part, the elementary students clearly enjoyed interacting with their older peers and exploring concepts of geometry in an engaging way. This is the second year in a row that Mr. Schneider has brought his classes to the Elementary School. Everyone hopes that this is the beginning of an annual spring tradition.
