This summer is a chance for children to learn that using math in real life situations can be fun. ACTCs Math Camp from June 11 to 15 will take students in second to fifth grades from ho hum to oh wow!
Math is the most widely used subject in the world, and every career uses some sort of math. Learning to take the fear out of math at an early age can help children perform better later on in school.
Math Camp students will decipher mystery messages, solve riddles and work on projects such as starting and running a business, planning a rescue mission to another planet, going on a scavenger hunt, taking the measurements needed to build a house and helping the tooth fairy plan a budget.
Math Camp is centered on national and state educational mathematics standards that are important for children to learn. The math concepts covered are appropriate to each grade level and include algebraic thinking, measurement, data collection and interpretation, numbers in base ten models and geometry.
Class times are 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. for second and third graders, and 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. for fourth and fifth graders. The class fee is $15, and enrollment is through ACTC Lifelong Learning, 606-326-2072 or email: as_LLL@kctcs.edu. Classes are held at the Roberts Drive Campus in Summit.
