Join the Flagway League!
We launched the Flagway League on Monday, October 25 led by coordinator Raphael Bonhomme. Our next meeting will be December 6 @ 5pm-once you register, you will receive a calendar invitation from our league coordinator .
"The goal of The Flagway™ Game is to create environments where students can practice and celebrate learning math. There are many different ways to create a cultural context in which mathematics emerges naturally from students’ experience. One method used by the YPP and the Algebra Project is to create mathematically rich games and experiences." Find more info about the game here: http://www.typp.org/flagway.
