Math and Community

Guided by Ms.Yau and Div. 2's Grade 6/7 class, the students of Anderson decorated popsicle sticks with positive messages.  Div. 2 then had to mathematically organize the sticks for presentation in a framed piece which will be mounted on a wall.  What is the area of a stick?  Are they all the same size (no, some big and some small)?  How can we arrange them into a rectangle?  What is the area of the plywood we will need for all of the sticks?  So much math!  So much community building!  This is a perfect example of how we marry math and community, for the new direction in our school story.
