Challenge Team Abstract
Team Number: 083
School Name: Silver High School
Area of Science: Behavioral and Social Sciences
Project Title: Behavioral and Social Sciences
The purpose of our project is to determine the statistics of the different learning techniques in our school. From this data, a mathematical model of the typical Silver High student will be created. This model will not only help the teachers to learn to teach different ways, but will also help the student to know how to study in the most beneficial way. In doing research we have found that there are three basic ways of learning. The first is visual; this is the easiest way to learn in the present educational system. A visual learner learns be seeing the material and learning from text. The next way is auditory, within this learning technique the information is needed to be heard not seen. Often these students are at a disadvantage since material is often in text form and not in audio form. The last of the three is kinesthetic. In this learning technique the student learns better with hands on activity than the basic text based curriculum. We plan solving this problem by distributing surveys to all high school student and teachers.
