Put-in-Bay School Enters Math Video Challenge

Put in Bay math contestPut-in-Bay School math students, under the guidance of Linda Rence, entered a national program that challenges students to develop their math, communication, and technology skills in a collaborative video project. Math Counts, the program sponsor, describes the program this way:

“Students work together in teams of 4 to create a video that explains the solution to a MATHCOUNTS handbook problem and demonstrates a real-world application of the mathematics concept explored in the problem. Combining art, writing, math, acting and technology, this program makes learning math interactive and fun for all students. Plus, students can win great prizes for participating and advancing in the contest.”

PiB VFD ready to assist!

Put-in-Bay, surrounded by heavy fog on Lake Erie and temperature readings rising to 50°F, witnesses a tactical ice shanty retreat.  Visibility is severely reduced, the snow-melt has created large pools of water, and the ice is thinning.  Rain in today’s afternoon and evening weather forecast promises more deteriorating conditions.  Put-in-Bay Volunteer Fire Department Co-chief Doug Wilhelm monitored the West Shore on a well-equipped all-terrain vehicle.Lake Erie Ice fog
