Math Tutoring & Enrichment. We want to encourage students to LOVE Math and experience and explore it in the context of real applications as one of the foundations of a technology education. Our tutors, who include Univ of Iowa Math PhD students, will ensure during 1×1 sessions that students are mastering math concepts based on school standards, and then also spend time in small groups exploring and applying math to all kinds of fascinating topics including robotics, engineering, music, computer programming, biology and many, many other fields of interest.
Math will be offered 2, 3, or 5 times a week in the Summer and 1 or 2 days per week during the Fall/Spring with the goal of building the foundation required to support more advanced technology courses.
For Summer: two or three students will be assigned a tutor based on enrollment and grade level. Each 2.5 hour session will approximately break down as follows: 50 minutes one-on-one tutoring to focus on student-specific math gaps, goals and interests, 50 minutes of supervised student practice, 50 minutes of games and activities that use Applied Math and Logic.
