Finding the area of Falls-Lenox and making a model of the school on a 1/12 scale
Savino, Addison, Claire, Austin, Mason, Luke, and J.P. worked incredibly hard to find the area of all the hallways in Falls-Lenox! They earned the Math Champ belt as a team on May 31, but this project took them months to perfect. They figured out that the hallways of FLPS have over 14,000 square feet, and they made a model on paper that is precise to a 1/12 scale! Check out the pictures and videos of their process.
