STUDENT ASSEMBLIES

Jared will take your grades K-5 classes through a full day of exciting, enrichment assemblies. Students will indulge in fun and effective math activities that they will be able to do for the rest of the year - including NumTanga, Kakooma, Math Limbo, Tangy Jeopardy and more. The best part? Our high-quality games are reusable, perfect for math centers, and students and teachers leave knowing exactly how to use them.


TEACHER PD

Greg will take the teachers through an interesting, motivating, exciting and effective PD session for each grade level K-5. In these small, intimate groups, Greg will train your teachers on exactly how to solve word problems - Greg's primary area of expertise. He will cover the most important concepts and conventions at each grade level, answering any questions your teachers may have along the way. Here are the main areas of focus that will be covered:

  • Problem Types - learning how many actual different types that students will be tested on
  • Progressions - understanding the correct order to teach the problem types at each grade level
  • Terminology - what to enforce and what to avoid
  • How to Solve - exact steps students need to follow in order to solve word problems quickly and accurately
  • Visual Models - part-part-total (grades K-1), bar models (grades 2-6), Tang Tables (grades 4-8)
  • Content by Quarter - knowing what content should be taught at what point in the year

FAMILY MATH NIGHT

This incredible one-hour event includes 5 stations that are proven to get students excited about math. They target critical strategies and skills, and give kids the repetition and practice they need. Best of all, when parents play our games with their children, they begin to think about numbers – and math – in new and better ways. Over the course of the event, students and parents will rotate through different math stations - each with a different fun activity that they will learn, play, and will want to keep on doing at home!


GAMES AND MATERIALS

High quality, durable games and accessories for up to 300 students at a time. All of these materials are fully reusable, perfect classroom math centers, take-home use, or to be saved for future math nights. This kit of games spans grades K-5 and is completely out-of-the-box ready to play!


WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE?

Greg will do 6 "Math Mania" assemblies consecutively throughout the day - one for each grade level K-5. During each session, there are two events happening at the same time: In one room (cafeteria, gym, etc), Greg's assistant Jared will host a math enrichment assembly for the students, while in another room, Greg will host PD on word problems for the teachers.
  • Each assembly grades 1-5 is 40 minutes long and grade K is 25 minutes.
  • 120 students max per session (if greater capacity is needed, please discuss with Greg)

What does the school need to provide in terms of venue and furniture?

All student assemblies will need to be held in a large, open room - ideally a cafeteria or gym. Depending on the size of the student assemblies, the school will need to provide enough tables to accommodate all of the participants. As a general rule, assume 8 students per table. So an assembly of 80 kids would require 10 tables. Cafeteria tables work great.


What does the school need to provide in terms of materials and equipment?

This program is completely out-of-the-box. Greg will have all games and materials shipped to your school a week prior to the event. Upon his arrival, please give him the materials and he will set everything up. Although Greg will be bringing his own microphone, PA system, and projector, it would be best if the school could also provide a microphone and projector of their own as a backup. The school DOES need to provide internet access and a projector screen, or at least have a wall in the venue suitable for Greg to project on so that the students can see the presentation.
