Zero to Infinity

Instructor: Lisa Armstrong

Intended Grades: 4-5

Dates: June 24th-28th (9am -noon)

In this camp, students will explore big numbers with an emphasis on understanding magnitudes. We will visit Spartan Stadium to estimate the number of blades of grass, pop popcorn to estimate the number of kernels which would fill the classroom, and estimate a variety of interesting “big numbers”. We will also play a variety of games to strengthen our math muscles!!

Students attending should... be comfortable with making estimations and beginning multiplication, and have strong number sense.

This camp has been offered for the past three years; students who have already attended are encouraged to register for a different camp.
