Math Problem-Solving Strategies: Grade 4

Description

In this eight-week course, students will be presented with a series of difficult problems that at first might seem overwhelming. The instructor will introduce different strategies that will give students fresh perspectives in order to arrive at solutions.

The purpose of this class is to help children develop problem-solving strategies. Instruction is based upon the work of George Polya, a 20th-century mathematician who did extensive work on approaches to solving problems. This will give the children a toolkit of approaches to any math problem and enable them to apply the tools confidently across a broad range of mathematical challenges.
