  • AMS Students Go Cross-Curricular with Math & Social Studies

    Last week in Ms. Massengale's 6th grade social studies classes, students got to look at different foods from McDonald's restaurants around the world. They had to examine the prices and convert the currency into US dollars to see how much it cost. Students could not believe that they were getting to use math in social studies!

  • AMS Students Take Cumulative "Snowman" Assessment

    Mrs. Gaither’s Math Class completed a cumulative assessment of the second nine weeks. They answered a total of 10 questions (that each student drew from a bag) which resulted in many different sets of answers. They then used a key provided to determine the attributes their snowmen must possess. Once all of the work was completed, they each got to design their snow man from scratch using a variety of materials. What a fun way to take a test!!!
