Students at Montcalm get Math lessons through golf

Posted:

Students at Montcalm Elementary school learned the basics in math, while brushing up on their golf skills.

The 6th grade math students created a miniature gold course to help them understand the basics of geometry. It provided a creative lesson in angles, shapes and math vocabulary that can be applied to everyday math situations. 

 The idea came from their Math teacher Steven Mcclanahan, who says the students learned a lot from approaching math in a fun way.

"I interviewed each student as a part of their grade," he says. They had to tell me about their project and the shapes and the angles that are incorporated with it. They had to explain what they learned as opposed to just making a project."

The students listed three different math shapes or angles on their projects, before participating in the miniature golf."
