Fun with Math

ULM's Math camp gives students the chance to explore the exciting concepts of mathematics while challenging themselves and learning new skills. As an added benefit, campers will meet other children and work cooperatively to discover the beauty of mathematics and its applications through fun, hands-on projects. Our Math Camp will be taught by two instructors: a current ULM mathematics instructor who has worked with teachers at both the elementary and junior high levels. She has also presented at local, state, regional and national mathematics conferences. The second instructor is an elementary teacher that is certified in Elementary Education 1-5 and Special Education 1-12. She has taught in this capacity for ten years in two different states with several specialized trainings. They have created and acquired a plethora of activities and strategies for helping students internalize the uses of mathematics by making the abstract ideas that they have learned during the school year concrete.

Two Sessions:
9:00am-12:00pm for campers who have completed 1st or 2nd grade
