Course Description

This class can be taken more than once. Students build different robot models and learn different math skills each week. Lego WeDo Robotics – Using the LEGO® Education WeDo™ Robotics Construction Set, the students are introduced to simple robotics through building models, attaching sensors and motors, and using a computer to program the model’s behavior. Some of the robot models include dancing birds, smart spinner, drumming monkey, hungry alligator, roaring lion, flapping bird, soccer kicker, soccer goalie, and cheerful fans. Students will also learn about simple engineering concepts such as pulleys, belts, gears and levels, while having a blast with their creations. Singapore Math – The success of Singapore Math is related to covering a fewer topics but in a more in-depth level, greater visualization of math concepts and greater emphasis on solving word problems. We will focus on addition and subtraction of numbers up to 100, then to 1000. We will play math games like math relays and Eggspert. Logic and Strategy Games – Students are taught logic, strategy and spatial games like Logik Street, checkers, Connect 4, Othello, Guess Who! and Blokus to enhance “thinking ahead” and reasoning skills. Keyboarding – Students will spend 15 minutes each day practicing touch typing. This skill will become more and more important as standardized testing moves to the computer.
