Calling all children who love mathematics! A free, monthly elementary mathematics circle will run by MAGE as a pilot in the City of Chicago.
Age: Grades 1-4.
Parents: This is not a drop off class, you have to stay on-site.
Student : teacher ratio: 10:1 at most.
Class Time and Location (do not show up without enrollment confirmation!)
Weekday PM: Thursdays 6:45 PM May 30, June 20, Altitude Trampoline Park, West Town.
Weekday AM: 10:30 AM Second Monday of the Month, private location that would be sent to registered participants. One date remains: June 10. See details here.
Weekend PM: Still working on location.
Class Duration: 45 minutes.
Description: Students will participate in mathematical games and activities with low-threshold of knowledge to start, but that could support very sophisticated mathematics to continue, allowing students of different levels to participate together. Several students will share a table and an instructor will explain the directions for each activity to each table and get them going, and then circle around to help as needed.
Code of Conduct: classroom-appropriate behavior such as age appropriate ability to following directions, keeping hands to yourself, engaging in the activity and not distracting other students is expected. Turn-taking skills are also expected - not all 1st graders can do this, so please don’t sign up your child if they are not ready with these types of skills. This is a short class, please arrive on time as we will not wait, and the teacher won’t have the ability to repeat instructions multiple times for late-comers.
