MathBoost! + Hands-on Biology

One of the secrets of math success -- and even math love -- is the ability to work with numbers quickly and easily.  No one likes work that takes too long or takes too much work. So, asking a student to do a complex operation, like long division or a complicated equation, that requires many steps, feels impossible for students who are still using their fingers to add and subtract or consulting a chart for times tables.  MathBoost uses fun ways -- games, races, contests -- to push kids to become fast and fluent in their grade level math facts (and above grade level math facts if we can get there).  For many kids, learning that math can be pain-free is a revelation.  Providing that revelation in the beginning of the school years can make a huge difference in how those kids look at math.  So, we take mornings to try to grow our students' excitement for and competence in math. 

Then, after lunch, we will dig into hands-on biology.  We're going to use microscopes to explore cultures and micro-organisms as well as watching zebra fish eggs and babies develop from fertilization through cell division.  We will also be studying anatomy and body structures and exploring animals through dissection (always a crowd favorite!).  This is the ideal intro hands-on biology class for any budding doctor, veterinarian, or life scientist!
