Many folks couldn't get out of their driveways during the big snowstorm, but that didn't stop 25 Plainfield Central High School students from learning.
They just hopped on the computer to study for their upcoming exam in calculus and honors precalculus.
Math teachers Tom and Lynn Bond offered a "virtual study party" to the students on Feb. 2 via the Internet.
"We were planning on a test on Wednesday for honors precalculus, so when the first snow day was announced, we told students to expect the test the day we got back," Lynn Bond said in a press release.
To allow for any questions they had on the review packet to be answered before the test, the teachers made themselves available for a couple of prearranged hours each day.
The students logged on to the virtual classroom to help each other solve problems, or to ask the Bonds questions on the review packet they were working on in preparation for the exam.
"The students who visited the classroom got their questions answered and did very well on the test," Lynn Bond said.
And because Lynn regularly bakes and brings in banana bread for class study sessions at school, a couple of students even drew a loaf of virtual banana bread on the discussion boards.
