At Polk County Middle School, teachers are always looking for ways to make learning interesting and fun. In the photo, math teacher Kenneth Alexander poses as a waiter and chef for his math class as a way to help them learn about percentages. After giving him their order, the students then totaled the bill and calculated the tax and tip for their meal. Students shown here giving their order are (left to right) Robbie Rardin, Savannah Jackson and Gabe Lail. (photo submitted by Kenneth Alexander)
