The 7th Grade has spent the past few weeks learning about and mastering Integers. They’ve completed various tasks on Mathspace and Khan Academy to strengthen their skills regarding concepts such as Integer Operations, Absolute Value, and Integer Word Problems. Yesterday, the 7th Grade was surprised to learn that every assignment they’ve done on Khan Academy since September went toward helping children in need around the world.
Khan Academy runs a motivational program called LearnStorm at the start of each school year where students in a class work together as a team to gain levels with every assignment they complete. This year, Khan Academy and UNICEF Kid Power collaborated to develop mid-program level prizes that allow students to give back globally!
