STEM at Bryan
USING CHROMEBOOKS IN MATH!
Algebra students use the Demsos program for graphing lines and investigating how a change in the slope or y-intercept would affect it. They graph scatter plots and systems of equations. This also helps students in their investigation of supply and demand.
BRYAN STUDENTS AND 3D PRINTING!
STEM SHOW N' SHARE IN COMPUTER LIT!
See how our students create, design and problem solve in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering & Math!
8th grade Geometry students are using a hypsometer to measure the angle of inclination. They were using their new trigonometry skills to figure out the heights of various objects in the hall.
8th grade students added rubber bands to drop Barbie from various heights and measured how far she fell. Students then graphed their data and made a line of fit from the scatter plot graph to predict how many rubber bands would result in a "safe" jump from 400cm.
