MERRILLVILLE | Merrillville Intermediate School’s fifth grade Blue Team math teacher Mrs. Mason enriches her students problem solving skills.

Mrs. Mason and Professor Victoria Chiatula of Valparaiso University have been collaborating over the past five years. They bring together Valparaiso’s education majors to engage the students in problem solving and hands on activities with mathematics.

This first semester students met on Oct. 14 for the introduction to problem-based lessons with children’s literature and will be continued on Oct. 21.

This collaboration has allowed Valparaiso’s pre-service teachers to work with a diverse group of students, and for MIS’s students to explore additional learning opportunities outside of the class.
