Mrs. Gwen Collins and her fifth graders from Defer Intermediate School is spending the next few days at Kent State’s AT&T Classroom. The class will be exploring several digital tools to support their learning of math concepts related to decimals. Mrs. Collins designed a project-based learning unit (PBL) that will engage the students in using decimal operations to solve a “real-world” challenge.

The fifth graders are working in teams on “\Decimal Survivor with each team stranded on a different island. The teams must survive the next two weeks on the island by completing the daily math challenges using various educational technologies.
