Rebecca Jones’ Calculus students worked with dry erase markers on the courtyard windows to find (1) the area between two curves, (2) the volume of a solid formed by rotating that area around a certain line, and (3) the volume of a solid formed by raising different shapes (semi-circles, squares, and rectangles) from the region graphed.

Progressive education at St. Francis School emphasizes active, experiential learning, problem solving, self-expression, critical thinking, collaboration, and healthy discussion and debate in every classroom (or courtyard hallway).
