Math Enrichment

Math Enrichment is an opportunity to practice higher-order thinking and hands-on skills in math. Each grade level K-8 is offered a class that is taught by a math certified teacher engaging students in interactive learning. Students are given the opportunity to problem solve and think critically. This is fundamental to gaining the skills and knowledge to solve problems and apply math to everyday life. Puzzles, games, and problem solving are modeled and students demonstrate abilities to work problems above grade level. A growth mindset is the basis for math enrichment.
