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.

Our Summer Program Director is Lisa Overton, a dedicated, resourceful, and goal-driven educator with a solid commitment to inspire lifelong mathematics learning, character development, and self-discovery in her students. Lisa is a career math educator who has worked for Tahoe Summer Camps in previous summers. The curriculum will be centered around YouCubed math, and more information on the Mathematical Mindset teaching approach can be found HERE.

The cost for each two-week session is $975 and is limited to 20 students per session. Click the images below to sign up for a session.
