Fifth Grade Garden Challenge

The Fifth Graders were challenged with a Math Problem: 

How many different ways can you create equal rows of 120 bulbs?   

They worked in teams, used their knowledge of arrays, showed their work, drew up their plans and presented them to their classmates.  The class voted on their favorite layout, and the winning team came up with an astounding amount of different ways to arrange 120 bulbs.  On Dec 2nd the fifth graders planted all 120 bulbs in the east garden of the front entrance.  We are looking forward to seeing the flowers blooming in March! Great Job!
