On May 13, Barranca’s 6th grade students showed the Kindergarten through 5th grade students the fun in learning math.
 
Math is Fun gives the 6th grade students the opportunity to become a ‘Teacher for a Day’, apply their knowledge, and mentor younger students in this subject.
 
Students made fractals using paper, build square bubbles, created design with the pattern blocks, and competed in Measurement Olympics.
 
“We had more than 300 participants, including students, staff, and some parents,” Lana Martin said. “The goal of this event was to expose kids to fun mathematics activities, which might spark an interest in this subject or to overcome math anxiety for some students.”
