ACS students measure up


The relationship between math and science is shown in projects coordinated by Ms. Makar and Mrs. Pickering.

A Measuring Project was done by the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Teams used the metric system to hypothesize, then measure lengths, widths, and circumferences of items such as shoes and the distance from their nose to their fingertips! Ms. Makar used the data in math classes to graph, find percentages, and estimate. The students used the scientific method to prove their hypothesis right or wrong.

ACS students learned that math and science can be used in every day tasks.
