Math Exploration and Enrichment
Math Exploration & Enrichment is an opportunity to engage and explore the world of mathematics in a deeper and more hands-on way. From math puzzles and games, to read-alouds that feature math concepts such as addition and subtraction, spatial reasoning and logical thinking, to place value, and counting money. Children will practice foundational skills in mathematics, learn strategies for solving word problems, practice math facts, and apply mathematical knowledge to real-world problems. We will also practice multi-digit addition, making graphs, and beginning geometry. Lessons include differentiated instruction and students are given activities that meet their level of challenge, all while engaging in a mathematics community of curious learners.
Instructor: Marlease Bushnell
