PUZZLES & PROJECTS TO GROW YOUR MATH BRAIN! / Cancelled
Did you know toothpicks can help you learn algebra? Do you know how to build a pyramid with blocks? How to make a map of your classroom? Can you design and build a bridge that holds weight? Join this class and you will do it all. We will make shapes, build structures and learn to predict for even bigger shapes and structures.
 
Math puzzles inspire students mathematically and encourage mathematical development and problem-solving skills. They help develop number sense which moves students away from counting strategies and memorized formulas toward using numbers flexibly and developing problem solving skills. Student who use memorization as their primary strategy are lacking key concepts and connections in math, while students who can use numbers flexibly and learn to problem solve gain the tools needed to succeed in math, as well as other disciplines. Also, teamwork allows students to teach and challenge each other, to exchange ideas and learn concepts more deeply. Developing solutions on their own gives them confidence and satisfaction.
 
In this class we will work in teams to take on puzzles and projects to develop problem solving skills, number sense, and an understanding of geometric concepts in an open, inquiry-based manner. All students will be challenged and all students will learn, feel successful, and have fun! (This is not a class to complete math homework, but rather to focus on the dynamic, fun group work.) Instructor: Norma Iglesias

SPANISH CLUB    
Students in Spanish Club spend time learning about the many cultures and countries where people speak Spanish as their primary language. Whether exploring music with drumming, doing art projects around a particular nation, or making foods that are regularly enjoyed, there will be some language exploration aligned with these engaging games, projects, and activities. This is not a technical skills based class at this time. Instructor: Alli Aroche
