GRADE 7/8 MATH CLASS WITH MR. JERGUS – MSHS SUMMER PROGRAM 2020
TAS Summer Program 2020 was designed to not only bring an enjoyable time to students, but also teach them lots of knowledge and skills for future growth. For MSHS students, even Math class could be fun and informative. The class started with a game called Coded Counting, in which some digits were substituted with a sound or an activity, and students had to count to as high as they could.
The class proceeded to the main task for students, which was Proving or Disproving fake news. Each team had one fake news or fake concept to prepare a presentation, simulation, or experiment about, and then to present to other students and teacher. The topics they did were: COVID-19 is the same as the flu, The Earth is flat, King James would be a billionaire if he put a dollar in his bank account, Trees get their mass from the sun, The sky is blue.
