Algebra Boot Camp, Summer 2018

In Summer 2018, CHAMP volunteers assisted KIPP Liberation Middle School with their Algebra Boot Camp for rising 8th graders. The middle school students engaged in activities designed to prepare them for their first exposure to algebra in the coming fall.

In the mornings, middle school students attended sessions on "using variables to stand for unknown quantities", "the language of Algebra", and "the science of learning". In the afternoons, students learned to use logic by playing mathematical games such as Mancala, SET, Tangram, KenKen, and Nonogram.
