Laurelhurst Math Club
Math Club is a parent led activity sponsored by the Laurelhurst PTA. The Purpose of Math Club is to develop students’ level of Math skills and knowledge. This will be accomplished by using fun games and activities.
Math Club will meet on Mondays from 2:30 to 3:30 PM.
Session 1: Mondays March 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th
Session 2: Mondays April 20th & 27th and May 4th, 11th, & 18th
For Math Club to start we need a minimum of 2 parents to volunteer each week! If you are available to volunteer every week, or any week, please contact Beth Cogan @ 206-250-9559 or [email protected] Registration forms will be distributed through Kid Mail and can also be downloaded here:
The PTA also sponsors Math Challenge. Math Challenge is a series of math worksheets published every other week on the Math in Action website (www.mathinaction.org). We are excited about the program and hoping many students and their families will enjoy it.
Math Challenges are available at: http://www.mathinaction.org/laurelhurst-elementary.html
Students from grades K to 5 are invited to participate. There’s no sign up for this program. We hope students and their families enjoy mathematics problem solving through these math challenges. The program covers strategies for problem solving including working backward, draw a picture/diagram, make an organize list, guess and check, and use logical reasoning.
This is a voluntary program that is meant to be fun and not a competition. We will offer participation prizes after every five challenges. Also, students who complete at least 12 sets out of the 15 sets of math challenges will be honored at the award assembly in June. All participants will be acknowledged on the Math Stars Board.
If you have any questions, please contact Beth Cogan at 206-250-9559 or [email protected]
