Anglegs in the Math Department

The math department at EJHS recently received a class set of Anglegs. This hands on teaching tool is great when talking about different polygons and specific triangles. Each color Angleg is a different length which makes it easy to discuss scalene, isosceles, and equilateral triangles. They are also great for testing theories on the Triangle Inequality Theorem. The students love the new manipulates almost as much as the math teachers!

The Outsiders

After Mr. Venters and his 8th graders read The Outsiders, they watched the movie and compared the two. He also allowed his students a day to dress like one of their favorite characters from the story.
