6th Grade Gifted Mathematics Seminar

Students focus on extending their mathematical thinking as well as real world application of math concepts. Students will have the opportunity to choose at least one project from a choice board of activities, including but not limited to: investigating careers that use math; evaluating websites for mathematical extensions; learning about coding; and creating a comic strip, writing a play, or children’s story to teach students about a specific math concept. Students may also choose their own area of math to explore and design their own project to complete. Students will also have an opportunity to learn and explore some basic concepts related to robotics, coding, and STEM through the use of a Sphero. http://www.sphero.com/sphero
