Mrs. Manning's sophomore geometry classes recently completed a unit on triangles which culminated in a project to make a pop-up card similar to children's pop-up books to send to troops currently serving in the Middle East. Students had to fold paper so that when the cards were opened, parts of the inner card would pop up, and then the cards were decorated and notes were written to thank the troops for their service. On a separate sheet of paper, students had to identify right angles, the types of triangles that were formed by their design, and if midpoints of segments were used. The cards will be sent to Lt. Clark Tucker and his men. Lt. Tucker is the son of Walker Valley teacher Coach Jr. Tucker. The students also contributed snacks for the troops, and a generous donation of beef jerky, candy, drink mix, hand sanitizer, and various supplies will be shipped along with the cards. This project was assigned to show students the relevance of mathematics in everyday life in ways they may not have imagined.
