Pre-Algebra Adventure

Program Info

Instructor: Kristina Lasher, GSB Middle School Teacher

This week-long course will get rising fifth- and sixth-graders actively engaged in using, appreciating, and understanding pre-algebra concepts. Through games, hands-on activities, math experiments, and projects, campers will keep their brains engaged and deepen their understanding of mathematical operations and concepts. As problem scenarios are presented, students will have opportunities to “notice and wonder” about the math in the real world. This offering is a great opportunity for your child to reinforce the skills from the past year and begin to build skills on the topics to come. Students are encouraged to bring their summer assignments.
