Calhoun Math Camp
Math will come to life for students at Calhoun Math Camp! During this immersive experience using youcubed.org curriculum, campers will develop their math skills and reinforce numerical concepts in an environment where math is fun and imaginative. Students will learn to build new strategies, approach problems creatively and collaborate with their peers – all while boosting their confidence and enthusiasm as budding mathematicians.
Each day will include an array of special projects and inventive activities designed to challenge and inspire a wide range of thinkers and learners. Together we’ll venture into the neighborhood to discover the math that surrounds us. We’ll explore, uncover and investigate all things mathematical – we may even build a robot or two!
