Math Beasts Camp 6 (Prealgebra Prep)
This summer program is designed for students who will be in a 6th-grade math class or Prealgebra class in the fall.
Each day of Math Beasts Camp 6 consists of a Problem Solving component and a Mathematical Exploration component. Problem Solving keeps students sharp on important topics while preparing them for the upcoming school year. We start each class with a quick review of a key topic that students should have encountered in the previous school year. This review is followed by a series of intriguing problems that push student understanding of the topic well beyond the standard fifth-grade level. We finish each Problem Solving discussion with a challenging activity in which students collaborate in teams.
Our Mathematical Explorations are designed to introduce topics that most students don't encounter until much later in their schooling, and to equip students with general mathematical strategies that will be useful throughout their education. The Math Beasts Camp 6 Mathematical Exploration starts with an introduction to several real-world problems that have the same underlying structure. These problems serve as an entry point into the rich field of graph theory. Students learn the basics of graph theory through mathematical games that can be solved with graph-theoretic concepts, laying the groundwork for applying graph theory to novel problems they'll encounter later in the course.
We offer this course in two formats: a two-week course that meets Monday through Friday for 3 hours each day, and a four-week course that meets Monday through Friday for 90 minutes each day. The content is identical in all offerings of the course.
Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll.
Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes two weeks before the class start date to allow time for delivery of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.
