Spirit of Math Summer Camps

Markham West - Grade 2-3 Basic Skills and Problem Solving I

&

Grade 2-3 Spirit of Technology


Morning Session by Spirit of Math Schools Inc   

This program is primarily intended for students entering grades 2 and 3 who want a “refresher” before school starts. It is also ideal for new students who would like to experience the Spirit of Math classroom, or establish some skills before starting the school-year evening classes. Content includes addition and multiplication drills, number theory topics such as regrouping and mental math, and problem solving topics such as consecutive number problems, counting shapes, date problems, cuts and pieces, and integers.


Afternoon Session  by Spirit of Technology

Spirit of Technology is a brand-new branch of education coming from Spirit of Math. By keeping to the similar philosophy as Spirit of Math, that students learn best using a balance of the four elements of drill (building fluency and automaticity), core work (skills, knowledge and concepts), problem solving (reasoning, logical thinking and imagination), and collaborative group work, Spirit of Technology is presenting a different approach to teaching technology. As an introduction to this program, a summer camp has been created with the intent to spark the joy of the essence, or “spirit” of technology.

In this fun-filled one-week of technology, students will be introduced to coding and robotics while creating their own game. Students will be introduced to a variety of programming languages.  Not only will students be introduced to the foundations of coding, they will also have the opportunity to apply their understanding to an advanced robot. This course is sure to hook your child into technology and help them understand how they can help to shape this whole new technological world.
