Limited Capacity seats available

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, where we strive 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!

In this session, you'll be introduced to the background and structure of our Math Madness class, then 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.
