This Thursday, January 28, students will teach other students in other grades about math concepts. Think of it as Student Teach Day, akin to Parent Teach Day. Teaching will occur the entire morning. At the end of the day at 2:30 PM, there will be a special all-school gathering to which parents are invited. Students will share what they have leaned and what sparked an enthusiasm for math in them.
As biproduct of the Mathapalooza, it is our hope that younger students will look forward to math in the upper grades and older students will gain deeper understandings through having to teach concepts to others.
It is our plan to alternate years between the Mathapalooza and the Science Conference (next to take place in January 2017).
