The 2018-2019 school year kicked off on August 15th and students, teachers, and staff got their first glimpse of the Math Learning Suite prototype on the second floor of the ERHS Library. Teachers from the math department and their students participated in the design process testing furniture and providing feedback for the prototype. The learning suite is designed to promote flexibility, comfort, and collaboration with movable furniture, interactive visual displays; mobile whiteboards and writable floor to ceiling wall surfaces. All of this stems from the principles outlined in the ERUSD Facilities Master Plan, which outlines why Furniture, Flexibility and Comfort are key indicators for high performance learning. One thing is for sure – everyone loved the new experience of the Math Learning Suite the first day of school at The Ranch.
