About this Grantee

Ms. Moore, Ms. Kirby, and Ms. Noblin, first-grade mathematics teachers, collaborate to improve students’ problem-solving skills. Students investigate geometry problems with Geoblocks, a set of wooden rectangular and triangular prisms and pyramids designed in proportional sizes related by volume. They also work with their families to complete problem-solving homework. After analyzing buildings in their community, students work in pairs to create plans for building their own town and build town models with Geoblocks.
