About This Activity

Math concepts come alive as we explore the world of problem solving through number puzzles, logic problems, math games, and other challenging activities! Using mathematically based, real-world scenarios, we’ll use logic, organize data, look for patterns, and practice a variety of problem-solving strategies techniques. Through collaborative group work and independent activities, we’ll tackle application-based challenges that encourage creative and critical thinking. Whether you’re working at or above grade level, we’ll reinforce foundational concepts and acquire more advanced—and wrap our brains around solutions! Requirements: Bring a snack and a water bottle for breaks. *PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT SELECT SESSIONS THAT HAVE CONFLICTING DATES. DOING SO WILL NOT ONLY DELAY YOUR REGISTRATION BUT WILL ALSO AFFECT CAPACITIES FOR OTHER STUDENTS.* __________________________________________________________________________ Teacher BIO: Matt McCracken teaches 5th grade at North Star Elementary School.
