Math Madness

Limited Capacity seats available

This session will be divided into four segments. Each segment will be slightly under 20 minutes. The session will begin with a story about the topic, Math Madness. Math Madness is a class offered through the Quest Academy at the Episcopal Day School in Paris, Texas. Basically, students are enrolled in a class outside of school as an enrichment opportunity in math. The purpose of the class is to change the mindset of the students through math activities that are fun and challenging. What we have found has been baffling. The students are always hungry for more! They are grouped with peers of a variety of ages, and one of the most difficult responses to change on the part of the participants has been “we haven’t learned this yet, I can’t do it.” Following a brief background story of the Math Madness class, participants in the session will participate in two activity rotations modeled after the Math Madness class. For the closing segment of the session, the research will be outlined connecting the Math Madness class, activities, and the results and outcomes of students who took part in the class. This session will be an exciting example of mathematical mindsets can be incorporated into enriching programs in classrooms and after-school programs through smart scheduling and creative student grouping.
