Program Overview

Math Masters I challenges 4th grade students, designated gifted by their school divisions to explore complex mathematical puzzles and engage in problem-solving of real-world situations through a mathematical lens. Using a variety of materials and computer programs, students spend three Saturdays immersed in rigorous mathematics activities. Students will spend a great deal of time working in groups to communicate ideas and share strategies. Students explore the creative side of mathematics as they dive into problems with a different theme each Saturday.

Topics include:

  • Logic and Game: Can you figure out the logic and math behind games like Set and Quiddler?
  • On the Shoulders of Giants: Travel through time exploring mathematicians such as Fibonacci, Sierpinski, and Euler while recreating some of their mathematical designs.
  • 3D Design: Do you know the story of the Three Little Pigs? Was the wolf really bad or were the 3 little pigs poor planners and designers? Use Sketch-up and the engineering process to figure it out.
