Matt Liddle | Nantucket New SchoolHead of Upper School
7th-8th grade STEM

In my STEM classes upper school students investigate our planet, its oceans, and our island. Through an experiential approach to learning we study the surface of Earth as well as its flora and fauna, which abound in both diversity and beauty. I use this integrated approach of teaching algebra and marine science as a vehicle for examining the many factors that influence life on Nantucket Island, and on planet Earth. Our classes are enriched with fieldwork, speakers, and class visitations in order to explore the real math and science that is occurring here on our unique island-considered by many a living laboratory.
