The most fun & effective math camp in SD!
Introducing San Diego's most fun and effective math experience! As educators, we find that students' learning development can stall and even regress over the summer. Kids are often sent to a variety of summer camps that focus on athletics and physical activities, but mathematical thinking gets left in last year's classroom. As a result, they fall behind in their next grade and struggle to get back up to speed. Keep your kids sharp! At Tang Math camp, they will use actual math skills in real world situations while developing a deeper sense of numbers in a really fun way. Keep your kids smart with Tang Math Summer Camp!
ABOUT THE CAMP
This exciting camp immerses children in math in the real world. Every activity - art, singing, engineering, cooking, sports and daily field trips - are all math centered. Campers learn to find math everywhere in the world that surrounds them. Because it is linked to everyday life, it is more meaningful and children develop cognitive skills that lead to number sense, mental thinking abilities and automaticity. They find themselves "using" math to solve problems, not "learning" a procedure. This kind of thinking sparks curiosity and helps children customize their own interpretation of math, learn values of numbers and sets, and develop efficiency by reasoning and transfer of knowledge and skills.
Daily field trips include exploring math at the post office and fire station. Campers learn to bargain shop at the grocery store and learn the ins and outs of math in a restaurant. They also learn to estimate how far they walk and how to measure things using non-standard forms of measurement. The campers are learning and having fun at the same time.
