Summer Math Enrichment Program
Students Call it Math Camp - We Call it Developing the Mathematical Mindset
Tahoe Expedition Academy is thrilled to host our Summer Math Enrichment Program (aka “Math Camp”) for students entering grades 5-9 in the following school year. Sessions are two weeks each from 9-3 each day, Monday through Thursday (or Tuesday – Friday for the first week of the July session), and students can attend one, two, or three sessions. Goals of the program include:
- Campers (students) see themselves as capable problem solvers; increase math confidence
- This will not be a silent math class where students “receive” knowledge, but instead students will be actively engaged solving rich and creative problems
- Campers will learn about important brain science to help them adopt a growth math mindset
- Campers will strengthen their math reasoning abilities through rich discussions utilizing a TEA Centered “skeptics framework”
Math Camper engagement is paramount to the success of our program. Watch the video below to hear about the student experience from past attendees.
