The class “Patterns, Puzzles, and Play” gives students the tools for deeper and more critical thinking. Learners will both see and implement patterns by observing nature’s designs and creating geometric art. Students will do interactive logic puzzles to encourage critical thinking and problem solving. And finally, students will engage in games and movement encouraging a holistic approach to mathematical thinking. We want our students to both appreciate the beauty of the world and be able to participate in thoughtful problem solving.
