Embracing Math through Visual Arts

Congratulations to Amanda Lanahan, Visual Art Teacher at Chandler Oaks ES for receiving a Partners in Education Foundation Grant entitled Embracing Math through Visual Arts. Their goal is to implement an after school spring art club that focuses on cross curricular connections in math and the visual art. Students will implement math strategies to “real world” connections. Grant teachers plan to impact 25 students in 5th grade who struggle with math concepts. We hope to see a growth through pre-assessment and post-assessment, which will ultimately impact STAAR testing scores and support our campus improvement plan at Chandler Oaks while engaging students with math concepts through hands-on learning using a visual art lens.
