We’re throwing away the chalkboard and teaching kids to think about numbers in a totally different way. Addition, subtraction, division and multiplication facts are crucial skills to master and many kids have a hard time learning them. While these concepts are often taught through worksheets, we think doing worksheets is as much fun for kids as filling out tax forms is for adults. Research has shown that a better way is to first show the relationship between numbers and then use practice and repetition, not through photocopies, but through active games. After our wildly fun Math Olympics games this summer, we will be hosting weekly Math Olympics events. In this workshop geared toward elementary students, kids will start the session “training,” i.e. learning a math concept. Then, they’ll spend the second half of the session using this knowledge to compete for the gold in our Math Olympics events!
Though classes have ended for the Summer Workshops season, please keep checking back for schedule updates. If you want to be the first to know what's going on with Higher Ground Learning and the Math Olympics classes, you should sign up for our mailing list. We'll send you weekly e-mails, tailored to your interests, that keep you informed on the upcoming HGL events and more. You can also check our calendar for more immediate information.
This class will practice all of the basic facts, while also learning
harder fraction operations, negative and positive number operations, and
conversions between fractions, decimals, and percents. Students should know addition and subtraction
and most of multiplication and division.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
