Fun and Games: Multiplication Madness- Start the new year off right by finally getting those pesky multiplication facts memorized! In this class, we will explore tricks and strategies to help you master those facts. We will memorize the facts by using Cusienaire Rods, singing songs and playing tons of fast-paced games! (4 sessions/ $45)

Fun and Games: Get to the Point! In this class, we will explore our place value system with base ten blocks and by playing tons of fast-paced dice and card games! We will continue to discover patterns in our place value system as we learn about money and decimal concepts too! We will uncover the mystery of why a penny is worth less than a dime even though a dime is smaller and why that pesky decimal point is so important. It is all about location, location, location! (4 sessions/ $45)

Storytime: Math-terpieces - Let the creative side of you come out! Yes, math can be fun AND creative! We will learn about master artists such as Escher, Mondrian, Di Vinci and John Audubon.

This is a class you certainly do not want to miss! (4 sessions/ $45)

Cooking Up Some Math: We Love Fractions! - Why do we love fractions? Because all of our favorite foods involve fractions (or at least cooking our favorite foods do!) We will explore the meaning of fractions while will play tons of fun games with fraction bars, dice and playing cards! Oh, did I mention we will learn about fractions while eating chocolate, pizza, cookies and other really sweet and yummy treats? (4 sessions/ $45)

Storytime: Space Invaders! Do you ever feel like math is from Mars or that mathematicians are really from a galaxy far, far, away? Well in this class we will investigate how math really is an interesting subject. We will travel the galaxy and count like Martians and other aliens and then we will build our very own space station: Polyhedraville. Come join us for an intergalactic amount of fun! (4 sessions/ $45)

Storytime: Dr. Seuss Does Math! “ I do not like math, numbers and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am!” Having trouble-doing math with a smile? Would your child rather run a mile? Math got you down? Does it make your frown? Have no fear! Dr. Seuss is here! Oh, the things you can think when you think about Seuss! We will have tons of fun exploring patterns, mind benders, logical reasoning and spatial puzzles with old friends such as the Cat in the Hat and Horton! (3 sessions only/ $35)

Cooking Up Some Math: I’m Sweet on Math - In this session, we will eat our way through math class. This will be a smorgasbord of math activities and games. We will review past skills from previous sessions and revisit all of our favorite games! We will do graphing activities with those adorable M&M guys, make homemade ice cream with Mr. Gallon Man and do alien math with my famous “gorp” recipe! (4 sessions/$45)
