UNO Math Camps-Last Day!

I had a great time working with Dr. McCarthy and the math campers this week! We all learned so much! Below, you will find a list of links to different “dynamic worksheets” students made to illustrate some of the topics covered in camp this week.
angle bisectors with a “special guest”
perpendicular bisector of a line segment

OK, OK, I know the “guest stars” are quite random, but I’m all for creativity! As long as these kids understand the content, as they demonstrated by making these worksheets, there’s nothing wrong with being a little random. In Algebra camp, students performed songs and videos to show what they learned this week. Unfortunately, technical difficulties prevented the young directors from completing the editing of their films. Nevertheless, everyone learned a lot and had lots of fun. See you next year!!!

UNO Math Camps Day 3

Today was another fun day! In the 6th and 7th grade class, we learned about number lines, negative and positive numbers, and we took a test to see if we remember what happened from yesterday. In the 8th and 9th grade class, we ate many lollipops while learning about solving one-step equations, we watched a movie, We did problems on the board, and worked with algebra tiles on the ELMO. We can’t wait for another great day!!!!!

Algebra Camp Day 4

Today we really got down to business and learned. The first group played math jeopardy, and we all had pedometers and we walked around campus and calculated how many steps we took in a certain amount of minutes. The second group worked on integers and also played math jeopardy. Tomorrow will probably be even more exciting.

Algebra Camp Day Three

Wow! today was even better than day 2!  We split up into our groups again. Group one learned how to multiply and divide fractions, while group 2 did an experiment. Group 2 tested the strength of spaghetti pieces. We used spaghetti, styrofoam cups, paperclips, marbles, and a partner. Attaching the paperclip to the cup and the spaghetti inside the paperclip, we added marbles into the cup until the spaghetti popped. This was by far the best time we have had at algebra camp. It seams that each day gets better and better. This is truly a great exprience, with great teachers.

A day of learning & fun

Today was a great day of learning and fun. We did many activities that challenged our minds. We split up into two groups and learned separate things. The first group learned fractions and worked with computer games and fractional blocks. The second group learned about point-slope form of a linear equation and measured certain slopes and then compared. We have two great teachers who make learning fun and interesting.
