Campers will explore interesting math concepts, practice basic skills, while working independently and in small groups so that they have time to think independently and then share reasoning and communicate ideas. There will be an emphasis on a growth mindset that encourages students to be flexible and think of math in a positive way. We will have one or two math mysteries to explore. These are open ended questions that allow students to use their own reasoning. They then explain their reasoning to their peers. Group work will be emphasized.
