Back in the dark ages (ahem…not so long ago) students and teachers were impressed with themselves by throwing about a bit of calculus in their Senior Year. Other than the than the math geeks, no one dared confess to math being understandable –never mind fun. Walk the halls of Robinson today and the story is very different: at this level of instruction and learning, there is definitely a feel of college campus.
On March 14, Robinson students, faculty and staff celebrated Einstein’s birthday and the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet. In honor of the famous never-ending ratio, Bradley Rivera, Middle School Math Teacher, held a contest where each class was divided into teams and challenged each other to solve some of the most mind-bending problems posted on the walls around the Upper School building. Groups of students collaborating to solve the most equations correctly vied to be the first to turn in their answers and win the coveted Pi day prize. When asked how it went, one student said: “It all added up to a whole lot of fun… and yes, we learned a bunch too!” #TheRobinsonWay
