Graphically Representing Data
What is a "box and whiskers plot" and when will I ever need to use one? What?s the difference between a histogram and a bar chart? Why would I want to stack a bar chart? Students will learn to look at data with an analytical eye and make good decisions regarding effective means of communicating essential information graphically. We will use graphs to present complete data sets as well as statistical summaries of data. We will also practice extracting information from graphs and answering questions regarding the underlying data, as required on standardized tests such as the PSAT and SAT.

Math Challenges: More Games, Puzzles, and Brain Teasers
For students who are already hooked on brain games, as well as those who are new to the world of tantalizing teasers, this class includes new twists on familiar games, as well as a fresh set of puzzles and activities! We begin with the pattern matching fun of SET, and give it a new spin with the dice of SET cubed. Students will be introduced to a variety of mathematical thinking activities, selected from Japanese puzzles, stone games (including one played in Colonial America), logic puzzles, physical puzzles and math mysteries. The goal of this class is to develop mathematical thinking skills through puzzles, games and fun.

Number Systems: Base 10 and Beyond
The ancient Babylonians used base 60. Modern computers use base 2. Does the base really matter? Why do we use base 10? Students will come to appreciate the importance of base as they learn to play games and translate numbers from one base to another. Students will learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide in bases from 2 to 16. We will place a special emphasis on binary, octal and hexadecimal representations, because computer scientists and engineers use them today. We will discuss exponential notation and use it to represent place values. We will investigate the use of scientific notation in base ten learn to use it in other bases as well!
