Class Experience

US Grade 5 - 8
The students in this class will learn to challenge their mind by using text and stories to analyze riddles and math problems.  They will then stretch and grow their minds by solving the challenging riddles.  
In my 10+ years of specializing in Elementary math, I have learned that when you stretch your brain and find ways to solve problems - problems become easier to solve.  When adding stories and riddles to learning the student gets more engaged in the fun and wants to find ways to solve the problems just to find a solution to the riddle.  When joining these ideas together {reading / problem solving / math} students are learning in a less stressed environment and are allowing their mind to stretch and grow while having fun.
