Discovering The WOW Factor in Math (Math Appreciation)

With Jean Hoeft, MA

Forget the drill, drill, drill and find the beauty and wonderment in mathematics. Put math fears aside, see math in a whole new light, and make math easier for the upcoming fall.

This course is designed to energize your math student and awaken curiosity in the divine design of our universe through mathematics. Students will explore some of the curious principles and laws that govern mathematics to explore how math affects them, and how it impacts their world. Each day students will be exposed to a new topic of exploration. We will discover the unique processes involved and they will be asked to perform a challenge for homework. Each topic is unique and no two students will complete the challenge the same. Grades are based on the completion of assignments and participation in class.
