Summer Math Camp

During the summer, from July 30, 2012 through August 9, 2012, rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students from each of the NNPS middle schools participated in a Summer Math Camp. Math 6 students studied fractions, math 7 students, integer operations and math 8 students, linear equations and inequalities. Each day, the students used problem solving tasks, hands-on manipulatives, and math explorations to deepen and display their understanding of mathematics. They wrote everyday in their journals and on their Math Camp wiki page where they uploaded stories, power point presentations, movies, commercials, pictures and video clips of their learning. Finally, each grade level had a culminating performance assessment to show their math ability. The program, which met many successes, was held at Crittenden Middle School.
