Mr. Tran teaches 10th grade Algebra 2 at one of Summit’s Redwood City schools, Everest, and one of his projects this year was Setting Up Sprinklers. In this project, students used mathematical models to propose placements of sprinklers to maximize the amount of grass that gets watered. What a key skill to learn with California’s drought! He’s excited that “this project gets students to think deeply about what it means to defend their argument using mathematics.”
