Summer, 2017

In Lake Oswego @ Uplands Elementary, we offer 2 weeks of classes. Each week consists of 5 different games and different math crafts each week! Sign up for one week or both!


Have you ever thought of how a game of hopscotch could help your kids with place value? Or, how kids could get reinforcement in adding or multiplying multi-digit numbers with a bean bag toss game? If you have a student entering grades 1-5, join us at our summer session of Math Gamers, called Math Gamers “Active,” and you'll see how it works!

A special set of "active" games, in which kids keep moving, have been designed for the summer session. So, they're moving and learning math all at the same time!

​In each class, students learn at least one new game. Maximum number of students per session is 12, so participants get one-on-one guidance, supervision, and help with the math concepts/skills addressed.
Throughout the week, students will also be working on a “math” art project. This is a craft or art activity that uses some type of math concept, such as geometry, symmetry, patterns, sequencing. The goal is to show students how math is everywhere! And, they have a product to take home at the end of the week.

In Newberg @ Chehalem Parks and Rec, we spend one day doing a measuring activity called, "Measuring Baxter the Dog©!" Baxter is a real Aussie mix who loves kids, and he'll help us learn how to measure in a new and fun way (e.g., how long is his tail, how much does he eat? How long does it take him to fetch a ball?)! We'll even do a math craft with the symmetry of Baxter's face in mind!
