Intro to Probability & Statistics: Games of Chance
Students will be introduced to the field of probability and statistics by analyzing games of chance from television game shows, Las Vegas casinos, and lotteries of different kinds. What are the chances of getting exactly 21 on the first deal in blackjack? What are the odds of landing on the million dollar space on Wheel of Fortune, winning the state lottery, and why does the house always win? Students will be immersed in probability theory. They will calculate theoretical probabilities and collect data to determine experimental probability. Students will use fractions, decimals and percentages to represent probabilities and positive integers to represent odds. They will be presented with increasingly difficult scenarios to which they will apply their knowledge of probability. Students will become comfortable using basic counting methods of combinatorics. The last class will focus on the importance of being a skeptical consumer of information provided by mass media.

Cracking Codes: Cryptology for Kids- Agents
Students will learn the language of spies and secret agents in this children's cryptology class. Cryptology is the science of secret writing which uses math and reasoning such as number patterns, sequences, and symbols to create and decode mystery alphabets. Each week students will learn one or more ciphers and will practice using them to write coded messages to each other and to decode class examples. Code systems in Quarter 1 include Caesar ciphers, alphabet and symbol cipher disks, the Pigpen cipher, and various transposition ciphers.

Geometry Challenge: Circles
Given the choice between a round pizza and a square pizza, how could you figure out which is a better value? Could you find the shortest route from point A to point B along paths of arcs and straight lines? Students will tackle these and other questions as they explore the properties of circles, radii, chords, arcs, angles, tangent lines, discs, spheres, and areas and perimeters of composite figures. Connections to counting/combinatorics, graph theory, sequences and patterns emerge when we explore equidistant points on a circle. Hands-on components of the class include classic compass and straight edge constructions, and a laboratory experience using water beads to explore the relationship between diameter and the volume of a sphere. Students should be familiar with complementary and supplementary angles, right angles, and the meanings of perimeter, area and volume.

Cracking Codes: Cryptology for Kids- Spys
Students will learn the language of spies and secret agents in this children's cryptology class. Cryptology is the science of secret writing which uses math and reasoning such as number patterns, sequences, and symbols to create and decode mystery alphabets. Each week students will learn one or more ciphers and will practice using them to write coded messages to each other and to decode class examples. Code systems in Quarter 2 include grilles, invisible ink, cover systems, number ciphers, and alphabet ciphers.
