Open to students entering grades 3–5
Mighty Math Explorers
Mighty Math Explorers is an engaging and challenging class that will cover an array of math topics. "Show your steps/work" will be emphasized throughout the session. Students will expand their knowledge of mathematical topics and strengthen basic skills: operations with multi-digit numbers, fractions/decimals, and order of operations (PEMDAS). Students will gather data and create graphs (picture/tally/bar/ pie/line) to visually display the data from which they will make observations and draw conclusions. They will analyze number patterns to "find the rule" and use it to find subsequent numbers. Topics in geometry will include classification of lines/angles/shapes, finding perimeter (circumference)/area/volume, and how to use a compass/ protractor. Students will look for math in art, nature, and their everyday lives demonstrating that math is very important and all around us.

Does your child love movies? Photography? Graphic novels? Storytelling? Art? This class will incorporate storytelling, artistic practice, and performance into one exciting creative endeavor. We will begin by laying out our ideas and the stories we want to tell. We will use traditional film storyboarding techniques including drawing, organizational, and writing skills. We will explore what it means to organize our thoughts around a story in a visual way and communicate ideas. We will work individually and collaborate on projects and research, helping one another through open, friendly, and inclusive presentations. The resulting work will range from a series of artworks, photography, performance, or video/short films.
