ILS 5th graders in sections 5M1 and 5M2 received an unusual, creative mathematics homework assignment from their teacher, Olga Krotenok. After studying the topic “rectangular parallelepipeds,” the children had to make one out of whatever materials they could find at home. Everyone came up with interesting creations: one student decorated the parallelepiped with tinsel, another attached a snowman, and one did up the figure as a gift.
“Creative homework assignments are very useful for children,” says Olga Krotenok. “Working with shapes helps them to develop creative thinking and master the material better.”
“Our teachers find many ways to interest their students, taking an individual approach to each child,” explains ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. “Creative lessons, brain rings, museum visits – all of these promote interest in studying and learning new things.”
