Grade 8 Students Build Pyramids in Class

Students with pyramid they built

Eighth graders used the Pythagorean Theorem formula in May to build pyramids in class.

“If the calculations were incorrect a pyramid could not be built. Students were very successful with this activity and totally engaged! We tried this for the first time this year and our students had a great time!” said Math Teachers Kirsten VanDyk and Melissa Pierson.
