pulleys, levers, and screws, oh my!

A few weeks back we made pulleys and all three types of levers in our Math Alive! class. The children loved it! They were each able to pick each other up in the pulley and to test out the levers to see if the fulcrum’s actually made their loads easier to lift or not. Here are some pics:





Hands-on math is super fun…we should all do it more often!

    These classes look so fun. I’m excited the kids have so much to look forward to each week. This whole project is brilliant. Yay for all of you who put it together each week. And yay for the children who are fortunate enough to attend.
