- We know math is important in our daily lives. But getting kids excited about it isn't always easy. Today at Northwoods Community Elementary School in Rhinelander showed students that math can be entertaining and educational.Math Project Day had students solving problems, using fractions and even learning about finances. 4th Grade Teacher Julie Krouze knows math isn't always exciting, but it's important. "Children creating their own math games help them to think outside the box from teaching somebody else these skills."
4th grader Shyla Wickham loves math even when it's not Math Project Day. But she likes to see her friends excited about learning."My favorite part about it is probably having everyone happy and experiencing everyone elses' game. Math can be fun. It's not always like oh this is so boring. It can make it really fun."Math isn't the only subject that gets its own day. Northwoods Community does a different subject every month.
