Math is more than just numbers on a worksheet. It can be beautiful, fun and inspirational! In this active learning session, educators will explore building a student-run business as a way to enhance the math curriculum in any grade level classroom. With help from San Diego-based nonprofit Real World Scholars, two teachers have transformed their math classrooms into successful businesses that are giving back to the community and solving real world problems.
Participants in this active learning session will hear from two EdCorps founders in their second year of facilitating student-run businesses. These two unique perspectives will allow the attendees to cultivate ideas and share real-world problems their own students can solve.
Collaboration plays a major role in the deeper learning process. One of the most challenging aspects of collaboration is finding like-minded individuals who share a purpose. Brooke and Amy have been connected through EdCorps, even though they are thousands of miles apart. They will share their journey and help others generate ideas, explore resources, and build relationships that could transform classrooms around the world.
