Two new machines made their debut in the weight room this week at Manson High School.
Sarah Wiggum and Kami Kronbauer, both teachers at the high school, submitted a proposal through the CWU GEAR UP program to purchase ergometers (commonly known as rowing machines) for the Manson Secondary School.
"We are incredibly excited to find an avenue to integrate math and physical education," says Mrs. Wiggum. "Not only will students be able to learn about kinesthetic awareness and timing while they are challenging their cardiovascular system, but they will also be diving into a unit embedded with subjects like rate, power, and momentum."
The mind-body connection can be incredibly powerful when it comes to recall of knowledge, and for some students, being able to make these connections both mentally and physically helps solidify and expand their learning. Wiggum states, "they won’t just be able to remember the process but FEEL the process."
