Enrichment classes that spark enthusiasm about math and build perseverance
Students play strategy games with peers
We facilitate fascinating sessions in-person and online that stimulate students' thinking as they collaborate or compete against peers in strategy games featuring mathematical content. While playing the games, students gain deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.
This course works well as an enrichment in-school program, after school, or homeschool.
MATH ENRICHMENT PROGRAM FOR ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE-SCHOOL STUDENTS
Our strategy is to play together! Our small groups meet with a highly experienced facilitator who leads the group through interactive games.
Our games are simple to understand, fun to play, and mentally stimulating.
To benefit from the program, students are encouraged to plan a strategy to help them win a game.
By interacting with peers, students collaborate with or compete against each other. Parents are invited, too!
Our games are challenging enough to make our students THINK. In order to win a game, students discuss possible moves and decide their strategy as a team. Each participant contributes by sharing their thinking and responding to peers’ ideas.
