The Du Bois Project will offer two 1-week math soccer camps this summer.
The Du Bois Math Soccer Camp helps children love math while keeping them physically active. We do not just teach children math. We teach them to love math. We teach young children to love math by connecting it to favorite activities: running around, kicking balls, solving puzzles, etc. Children learn better when they are active. They learn math better when the math is made real.
Helping children want math challenges.
Math is fun when it is challenging, but possible. The problems that we present them will be tailored to their ability, making them challenging, possible and fun.
