On Tuesday, April 14, 2015, the Forest Park Middle School 7th graders traveled to nearby Dominican University for a very unique play. Instead of the play being about one of the usual subjects–reading or social studies–the play was all about math! Eureka! a play presented at Dominican for elementary students explored the importance of math in our society and how math has changed over the years. Albery Einstein takes the main character, a young girl wondering how math will ever fit into her life, on a trip through time to meet with the famous mathemeticians of the day. Using humor and actual math facts, the play told the story of how math is woven into our everyday lives. Students and teachers had a great time and learned quite a bit! Here’s hoping the students took those lessons very much to heart.
