Saturday Math Program

College School - Science Explorers

Do you want your daughter or son to LOVE math?  Do you want your child to be challenged with fun, hands-on tasks and activities?  Does your child like math and want to improve his/her skills?

The College of Education and Human Development’s Professional Development Center for Educators offers a series of 6-week Saturday Math sessions, an enriching experience that makes learning math enjoyable.

Content of Sessions: Each class of Saturday Math will feature several Number Talks – these are 10-minute math routines designed to help your child build their procedural fluency, master math facts,  and think flexibly about numbers.

Children in grades K-1 will focus on enhancing their problem solving.  In grades 2-3, children will work to build their number sense and conceptual understanding of numbers and operations.  In grades 4-6, children will experience and create different representations of mathematical situations to deepen their understanding of the underlying mathematical connections between fractions, decimals, and percent.

Eligibility:  Only students in grades Kindergarten through 6 are eligible.

Schedule: There are three 6-week sessions held during the year, each with three time options.

  • Session I – October 8, 15, 22, 29, November 5, 12    CLOSED
