TMS Educator Receives STEM-CAN Grant to Benefit Student Learning

 IMAGE: Students learning with algebra tiles, a hands on approach to learning. Congratulations to Stacy Bansback, Tortolita Middle School educator, who received a STEM-CAN grant through the STEM-CAN Supporters, Inc. This grant makes it possible for 7th grade students to learn in a more conceptual hands-on way using algebra tiles to bring the abstract to student’s hands! Rational numbers, expressions, and equations can be brought from the abstract to concrete when done with manipulatives giving the students the ability to put a physical representation to an abstract concept. Exceptional tools to help students visualize integers and their operations!
