Points of Pride

MATHEMATICS

       Lake Shore has used Carnegie Learning online for 9 years within our Algebra I curriculum. This computerized system gives example problems, tips on how to complete problems, a step by step process, and immediate individualized practice. 

       Every mathematics student has access to a TI 84-Plus graphing calculators for in-class usage.  The math department has 400 TI-84 calculators for student use.

       Students are given a comprehensive math curriculum for all levels ranging from co-teach, paced, and independent courses.  Math support classes are also available for Algebra I and Geometry.

       Math students celebrated Pi Day with calculating pi, solving word problems, and eating oatmeal cream pies!

       In lieu of a traditional final exam in Probability and Statistics, students created carnival games where they were required to calculate all chances of winning and losing plus expected values and fairness.  Using fake money, students paid to play the games, hoping to make a profit. 

       Through the Lake Shore Foundation’s generosity, the math department was awarded a grant for $9,000.  They used the money to purchase 90 more graphing calculators.

       In May 2016, 83% of students passed the AP Calculus AB exam; the highest success rate of any current AP class at LSHS.

       The math department uses more than 50 different instructional strategies to meet the needs of their students. 

 

 

SCIENCE

       Students experience hands-on learning labs featuring Single Replacement Reactions, Crime Scene Analysis, Magnetic Levitation Cars, and Frog, Sheep Eyes, and Rat Dissection.

Our Astronomy class requires students to create their own solar system and planet, measuring star distances and designing mountains and seas. Our science department does an exceptional job at making learning visible, providing the labs and kinesthetic projects that make concepts stick.

       In one Biology lab, students were measuring the breathing rates of fish. Using a 1 minute timeframe, students counted the movement of their gills. 

       Biology students were divided into teams and asked to teach the class about light independent and dependent reactions and stages of photosynthesis using their illustrations as a prop. Terminology, equations, and visualizing the process were being learned through the posters and presentations.

       Chemistry A students created models and videos to demonstrate their understanding of nuclear chemistry. Options were alpha radiation, beta radiation, gamma radiation, fission, and fusion.

Several were planted in biodegradable pots for students to enjoy in their own gardens. In the future, a greenhouse will be built for the entire Lake Shore community to enjoy.

       The fear of presenting is real for many students. Giving students the opportunity to present is a way to practice this important critical skill. Chemistry B students were assigned the Molecule That Changed the World project which required them to share molecule basics, creation, discovery, and historical implications within a presentation. To practice, students formed small groups and gave peer-to-peer presentations, allowing them to receive constructive criticism before their whole class formal delivery.

       Zoology classes discovered, through dissection, that the organs in a frog have a similar layout to a human body.

       Advanced Chemistry students demonstrate what they’ve learned in a CO2 “boat” project. This project encompasses almost all of the topics they learned during the second trimester of the course. At the end of the project, students submit learning logs and race their “boats” in a 10 foot long rain gutter to see which team has the fastest time.

       Students in a variety of courses participate in learning games to improve their knowledge. Kahoot and Quizlet allow the students to compete against each other while demonstrating what they’ve learned.
