Haverhill Public Schools Mathematics Vertical Team
Fourth Annual Math Museum

The purpose of the Math Museum is to present all HPS students, Kindergarten through high school, with an exciting opportunity through which they can …
* Enhance their math knowledge by exploring a math topic and
communicating their mathematical ideas.
* Make connections between math and the world around them.
* Learn about a math topic not typically taught during the school year.
* Promote their self esteem through an independent education process.
* Learn what it takes to prepare and deliver a successful presentation.

The project can be done in school or at home … as a class, in a small group, or individually.

4:00pm- 5:30pm
Awards Ceremony & Reception @ 5:15pm
Haverhill High School Library

Please see a member of the Math Vertical Team for scoring rubric, organization & general information, and topic ideas.

Each school may submit no more than 3 entries per grade level.

If you have any questions, please contact Patty Juranovits (Math Curriculum Supervisor) at 420-1904 or pjuranovits@haverhill-ps.org
