VFEE Funds Physics Teaching Tool At VHS
Physics and trigonometry are everywhere! That’s what math teacher Mark Russo and science teacher Jon-Eric Burgess are teaching Verona students through the use of a new contractor’s transit.
The transit, funded through a grant from the Verona Foundation for Educational Excellence (VFEE), is a precision instrument used by contractors to determine grades and elevations, plumb walls, level foundations, and set slopes. At Verona High School, the students have explored functions of the transit and learned its uses as a real-world tool.
AP students created trigonometry/physics problems for the Honors students to solve, such as finding the slope of the ramps in the school and finding the height of the basketball hoop without touching the rim. The students enjoyed solving these riddles from their peers using aspects of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education that can be best demonstrated through professional grade equipment.
Thank you Verona Foundation for Educational Excellence for encouraging innovative ways for the students in Verona to learn.
