Hello from Chicago!

This past week i've been working with the Chicago Architectural Foundation  (through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities) to create some great math lessons for the upcoming year!  I've been focusing my research on the history of skyscrapers, and already have some good ideas for fun activities we can do together (and learn a thing or two about geometry at the same time).    You may be wondering what Chicago skyscrapers have to do with our small city...I think you'll be surprised to see that some of our buildings we have in Savannah are directly inspired by buildings found in Chicago!  I'll share some pictures from my trip with you at when we see each other at the beginning of the year.

Enjoy the rest of your summer,

Mr. Trent
