FOR A GEOMETRY PROJECT
THAT'S A PERFECT '10'
Fun idea at St. Patrick's Elementary School in Elkhorn: to celebrate the school's recent 10th anniversary, five eighth-grade geometry students who meet before school with their math teacher for geometry enrichment practice designed a human "10!" of hundreds of people that could be photographed from the air.
The students measured a nearby soccer field, brainstormed a design, made a scale drawing, painted exact measurements of the outlines of the numbers, organized over 600 students and teachers into the "10!" shape, and now have an unusual memento, the aerial photo.
