Description of ProgramOffers a summer program for middle school students. For students in 6th and 7th grade the program is designed to be hands on and will include math activities that will engage and build confidence. Students will practice and increase their math skills by working on real world problems that are both fun and challenging. Students participating in these programs should be interested in math, inquisitive, and willing to work hard to learn something new! The program will focus on: Introduction to Algebra, Fun with Geometry, Fluency and Operations with Rational Numbers, Real World Statistics, and an Introduction to Probability. For students in 8th and 9th grade program: Common Core Algebra centers on the study of functions. Students will investigate linear, quadratic, and exponential functions though engaging hands on activities aligned to the Common Core standards. These activities will help build their understanding of the key concepts they will encounter during the upcoming school year. Students will also build some of the critical skills they will need to succeed in high school mathematics such as factoring and operations with real numbers. In addition to the activities built around the high school math curriculum, students will also investigate topics not covered in a traditional classroom. By exploring topics such as topology, cryptography, and fractals, participants will have an opportunity to develop an appreciation for the sheer beauty of mathematics. Students will leave with a deeper understanding of the core concepts of high school algebra as well as an appreciation for mathematics as its own field of study. Call for more detailed information.
