This week, American Education Week 2019, the 3 administrators of #BHill8 participated in the Shadow a Student challenge. Wolf Ridge Principal Shonda Ronen shadowed an elementary student, Superintendent Todd Dugan shadowed a junior high student and BHHS Principal Matt Smith shadowed a high school student. The exercise is designed to focus on the experience of what is most important to our work in K-12 education: the students. Valuable insight and empathy were gained as a result.
Mrs. Johnson's Algebra II class did an Angry Birds student inquiry Quadratic activity. Red, Yellow, Blue and Black Birds are angry because the pigs took their eggs. The students used their previous knowledge of quadratics and other resources (DESMOS graphing calculator on-line, graph paper, etc.) to graph each parabolic path of each bird (given different forms of quadratic data) to see who would come the closest to the pigs in order to get their eggs back.
