    Spring Activity - Math Takes Root!

    By Mathnasium | Added Apr 1, 2017


    Have you gone shopping this week? Thought about your favorite baseball player's batting average? Baked a cake? If so, you've been doing MATH!

    Math is everywhere, in almost everything we do. Most of the time we don't even know we're doing it! This spring, we challenge you to think about--and celebrate!--all the ways you use math every day. You'll be surprised at how many opportunities there are to fortify your math foundations, practice your skills, and let math take root in your life!

    To help you recognize these life-math opportunities, get some prizes, and have FUN, we invite you to explore our Math Takes Root spring activity! 

    Download the activity packet (US activity packet here; Canada activity packet here) and fill in your Math Takes Root tree by completing your choice of six of the math-related activities listed on each cluster of leaves. As you finish each task, cut out the cluster and stick it onto the trunk and branches. Once your tree is complete, bring it into Mathnasium for a fun prize!

    Before I came to Mathnasium, I could sum up everything I felt about math in one word: 'EVIL!' I hated math. ... Mathnasium has been my safe haven. They truly have shown me the light when it came to addressing my fear and provided me with the tools that I need to rebuild my prior knowledge so that I won't forget it. Math is no longer a subject I shy away from but it is a subject I can boldly accept and understand.
