Grant Allows Three Schools to Collaborate on New Program

The Norman J. Stupp Foundation awarded $8,750 toSt. Roch, St. Francis of Cabrini and St. Cecilia schools for the Mental Math– Middle School Project.   The grant was written by Professor   Richard Lodholz who consulted with principal Gloria Openlander, and St. Roch Math teachers Paul Shaver and Tim Cummins concerning the project.

The Project goals are:

1. To increase student computational proficiency and numerical understanding by creating and implementing periodic lessons depicting key strategies with related daily 3 minute practice exercises throughout the school year in grades 5, 6, 7, and 8;

2. To strengthen teacher and principal knowledge of mathematics by professional development through collaboration with teachers and principals in other schools and the project director;

3. To develop a researched based mental math/estimation program across grades 5-8 through the medium of Power Point lessons and printed daily exercises on Word software that can be disseminated to other schools in following years.

 

The schools involved are excited about this opportunity and look forward to working together throughout the school year.   The school communities appreciate the efforts of Professor Lodholz.!
