In Roots to Leaves, as we affectionately call this camp, campers help Numero, the Number Wizard, rebuild the Numeratory that has been destroyed by a tornado. In doing so, they tune into their sense of number, enriching it with lively exploration into number theory topics such as odds and evens and prime numbers. Guided by the teacher in this endeavor, campers open a window into the underlying structure of mathematics.
Campers also develop their skills individually as they climb the MathTree® from the Roots level up. MathTree® is a tree you want your child to climb! Using the MathTree® proprietary skill system, youngsters refresh, sharpen, and extend their repertoire of math skills. The skill curriculum customizes to each child so this camp is useful for enrichment, review, or remediation. Skills include the four basic operations plus fractions, decimals, and percents. More advanced campers develop their skills in integers, absolute value, order of operation, exponents, radicals, and complex fractions.
