Digital Tool Makes Learning Math Fun

In Phil Kimi’s ’97 seventh grade class, students are using the digital tool, Flipgrid, to create and share fun videos that bring math to life.

For example, when learning about compound probability, Aka Pietsch ’25 created “trick shots” then used experimental data to calculate the chance of success three times in a row.

In another example, when learning about ratios and rates, Rocky Sereni ’25 increased the frames per second on his camera then used his knowledge of proportionality to align slow motion events to the beat of a song.

“I am amazed by the creative talents of my seventh grade students, and grateful for the opportunity to see how they use math to express their creativity,” Kimi said.
