Maggie Nate another marketing student said, “This extra-curricular course allows students to choose what they want to lean.  They research their particular topic and then present their findings.” 

  Math students were able choose which group they wanted to participate in; designing, builders, painters, bean bag makers or marketing.  Math skills were used in a number of different ways from creating a scale drawing to determining the size of the game boards, angle they would be set at for play, diameter and circumstance of the circle on the game board, amount of lumber needed for the various pieces, cost comparison of material and measurements for the bean bags, the weight of bean bags and how many bags of beans would be needed to fill all the bags.

  Students will be selling 10 Corn Hole Games at the Farmers’ Market this Saturday, May 18th from 7:30 to 11:30.  The students have created game boards with football, basketball, breast cancer and Plymouth.  Each game will cost $70 with the funds going toward the SOLE class at LJH.
