We started with a basic problem on the board, having the teachers work with pentaminos. They had to problem solve to put them into rectangles. The teachers seriously worked in groups on this activity for over an hour without slowing down. Then out came the tangrams. And they worked some more.
After lunch, they talked about measurement and area and arbitrary units of measurement. So, they went off to measure the field in footsteps.
On Monday, the teachers will do the same thing with the students that attend math camp.
The teachers are learning and engaged and so I know the students will be too.
