Math can be found everywhere! Science, business, the arts, nature, and more, all contain elements of math. This class will focus on building strategies for solving mathematical problems students may encounter in their daily lives. Students will also have the opportunity to collaborate in groups and partnerships on projects. Activities will be based on real-life scenarios.
Math in Our World will feature:
  • Identifying numbers in our daily lives
  • Math in nature: patterns, symmetry
  • Reading mathematically: maps, graphs, charts
