Apples Equal Mathematical Fun at Centre Avenue


Centre Avenue kindergartners in Brianne Dooley’s and Linda Grace’s classes had an opportunity to taste granny smith, red delicious and golden delicious apples during a recent lesson in mathematics.

The lesson began with students examining the texture and smell of the three varieties of apples before tasting them to decide which they enjoyed the most. The children made predictions about which kind of apple their classmates would vote for as their favorite and graphed the results on a classroom Smart Board.

According to teacher Dooley, the activity was part of the students’ mathematical study on comparing sets. The children also wrote about their favorite apple after the class vote.
