What's Included

Discover the world of creative problem solving! Using the power of logic and reasoning, we'll explore math-oriented ways to solve problems. With an emphasis on teamwork and collaboration, we'll explore the principles that govern mathematical problem solving. Through fun and engaging hands-on activities and games, we'll apply inquiry-based strategies and investigate powerful techniques for deploying math as an effective tool to solve real-world problems. Along the way, we'll think outside the box and become familiar with higher-level questioning—which will prepare us for success with standardized testing. Problem-solving skills rooted in mathematics are foundational to careers in science and computer science, architecture, math, technology, and medicine. As we develop our ability to create equations and solve problems, we'll also build number sense, fill content gaps, and increase learning retention--while developing a solid foundation for success in math and beyond! *This course is suitable for students working at or above grade level. Requirements: Bring a snack and a water bottle for breaks Nicole Tabor teaches 2nd grade at Georgia O'Keeffe Elementary School, where she taught an after-school problem-solving math club to 4th and 5th graders. Ms. Tabor previously taught 3rd and 5th graders in Colorado and New Mexico. She received a bachelor of science in Elementary Education with endorsements in TESOL and Language Arts.
