Fifth-graders at a New Jersey school are learning about angles, symmetry and measurements by building a boat. Before construction began, students worked on boat-based math problems in class. "You could really see the impact of the lessons when they got here and started working on the boat," teacher Colleen Griffin said, adding, "The minute they saw it, the problems made sense."
