Day 07 - Smarter Buildings (Elementary)

Today we started with learning the area method for solving multiplication problems.

Group 1

The problems we solved were 2-digit by 2-digit!

Our next step was to ideate in lists and sketches how we would design a building of our group’s choice that solves a problem of our choice.  Then, we worked on building it and we made most of our prototype.  The group from Buildings 2 came into our room to give us feedback on our prototypes and they invited us to their room to give feedback on their prototypes.

We had 2 sets of visitors.  Our first visitors included Regina Renaldi, a SVVSD assistant superintendent, Ray Johnson from IBM and a district educational advocate from the office of Congressman Jared Polis.  Our second set was a group of our parents.  Both groups were very impressed with our progress and can’t wait for the exhibition Friday evening.
