Marilyn Keith's GT students won an Irving ISD grant this spring to use six of the XO laptop computers purchased by the Irving ISD. Their goal for the project was to use the inquiry method for Geometry and problem solving using Pippy and Turtle Art relating it to logical and reasonable conclusions for math and language arts.

Student are shown below creating programs in Turtle Art with Marilyn Keith instructing and Mary Surber assisting. These activities were directly related to their grade level Mathematics TEKS: analyze and describe patterns and relationships; identify right, obtuse, and acute angles; and problem-solving with strategies or technology. (This is a group of 3rd and 4th grade GT students.)
