With the support of the River Valley PTO, the fourth grade students were able to come “face-to-face” with great characters from a professional touring theater company. “By the Numbers – A Mathematical Musical” was performed at River Valley for all fourth grade classes. The production tells the story of a student named Eddie Einstein who fails to see the relevance of math. That is until Albert Einstein puts his “Theory of Relevance” into effect. This allows Eddie to visit all kinds of great characters who help him to see the importance of mathematics in every profession that he is considering!
The students were able to join the characters on stage to illustrate mathematical concepts in a fun, engaging way. The staff and students alike expressed their gratitude to the PTO for supporting these types of educational experiences.
