Math in Motion

School of Distinction AwardTuscaloosa City Schools

Principal, Mrs. Preeti Nichani

Superintendent, Dr. Mike Daria

Tuscaloosa Magnet Schools-Elementary (TMSE) collaborated with the University of Alabama’s Honors Program (UAHP) to integrate math standards into engaging science experiments through the program, Math in Motion. The program spanned four weeks and targeted the two mathematics areas/strands of Number and Operations and Measurement. During the initial meeting between TMSE teachers and UAHP students, the students shared their college research projects of rocketry, Astrobiotics, building cars, drones, and a mechanical hand used by NASA. TMSE teachers and UAHP students collaborated to create activities related to their research projects and aligned to grade-specific math standards. Third graders built balloon driven cars to explore force and motion, data collection, and measurement. Other third grade classes created a mechanical glove using string and cardboard to mimic a prosthetic hand. These experiences introduced students to engineering as a career path. Fourth graders learned about race car parts as they measured angles of wheel axles, weighed parts, and converted measurements. In fifth grade, students learned about drag/air resistance while racing objects and comparing times. During the final event, third-fifth grade students explored all the research projects. As a result, Math in Motion positively influenced the school’s math achievement and growth scores on the spring Scantron assessment.
