My students need 3 sets of 6 different math games, like Farkle, Krypto, and Blokus, to practice math concepts and facts.
Help create a culture of math at EES where every student sees him/herself as a capable mathematician. I would like to develop an after school math club, open to students and community members, using commercially available games to explore each of the strands of math.
Our K-5 Elementary School is in an urban setting with a diverse student body.
The school community is comprised of a majority of families who live in poverty including many non-English speaking families and families of color. Many students come from families who were "bad at math in school." We are committed to turning around attitudes so that "Math is Cool!" and "We are good at Math!" and in doing so, turning around our number of students who are proficient in mathematics.
Imagine Ifâ¦ The only time a child was encouraged to read was during the 45 minutes of reading class time in school. Would he be a strong reader and lover of books by the time he reached high school? Imagine Ifâ¦ The only time a child was encouraged to do math was during math class time at school. Would she really love and understand math by the time she reached high school? Would she ever imagine a career associated with math, such as engineering, architecture or financial analysis? The after school math club is dedicated to showing elementary students how math is relevant to their lives and to inspire children, teachers,and parents to explore, play with, and enjoy the challenge of math. The games will be used as part of a curriculum designed to strengthen skills in number sense, geometry, algebra, measurement, data, probability and problem solving. Students will learn the games, the math behind the games and then teach the games to their families at periodic Math Nights.
This combination of Math Clubs, a Monthly Math Challenge and periodic Family Math Nights is designed to create a culture where math is understandable, enjoyable and exciting... where students are enthusiastic in the rigorous pursuit of math exploration.
