Math Boot Camp
Learning did not take a vacation this summer at Marvin Elementary.
Marvin hosted one of the first Singapore Math Boot Camp sessions for students in the county who are new to 5th grade AIG math. The camps were taught by UCPS AIG teachers including our own, Leesa Martins.
Students learned about model drawing, a strategy often used in Singapore Math. For an explanation about model drawing, you can go here. Students also learned about number bonds and how they can be used to solve addition, measurement, and fraction problems. Along with all their learning about math, students managed to make new friends and have some fun.
