Math Magic

Math Magic Summer Camp

TOPICS

Place Value (MathMagic Place'd to Be )

Understanding place value is the key to grasping the meaning of multidigit numbers as well as various arithmetic algorithms such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Lacking this comprehension makes most of k-5 math algorithms extremely difficult to understand, painful to memorize, and prone to be forgotten. Recognizing 35 as three tens and five ones, rather than just the number succeeding 34, is fundamental for understanding the meaning of multi-digit addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division algorithms. It also lays the groundwork for pre-algebra and algebra in later grades. During the summer camp, we will dive deep into the fundamental concept of place value, and uncover how it is integrated in many math algorithms and operations .


Fractions (MathMagic Fraction Funhouse)

While fractions are always introduced as a tool for cutting pizzas and pies, it is important to see fractions beyond its basic meaning as this concept is also widely used in calculating speed, time, productivity, etc. Recognizing fractions as an operation

(the numerator divided by the denominator) is vital to understand the meaning of fraction multiplication and division. Such understanding also lays the foundation for algebra learning in higher grades. During this camp, we will dive into the world of fractions in a mathematically meaningful way that goes beyond cutting pizzas and pies. Gain a deep understanding of  fraction operations instead of memorizing the algorithms.
