Summer Science

Students will use the tools mathematicians use to:

  • play and create math games involving strategy and number
  • strengthen problem solving skills by exploring word problems and riddles
  • develop number sense by counting collections and building numbers
  • create a classroom store to learn more about money

Students will also use the tools artists use to:

  • learn techniques to enliven drawing, printmaking, painting and sculpture
  • work with a variety of art materials including: watercolors, acrylics, oil/chalk pastels and clay
  • explore the building blocks of art: color, technique, value, composition and drawing

This summer your child will explore the joys of being a mathematician and an artist. Students will begin to examine and appreciate the relationship between math and art by studying patterns and shapes. This class will be team taught in side-by-side classrooms, with half the morning devoted to art and the other half devoted to math. Outdoor excursions are planned to the UCLA Sculpture Garden and the Fowler Museum. We will culminate our summer program with an exhibition of the children’s artwork and a Family Math celebration. If you are signing up with a friend please indicate this on your registration form so that we group children accordingly.
