Free bilingual classes in English and Spanish for families. Through engaging math activities, parents learn to reinforce mathematical skills students need to succeed in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) learning. Families get their hands on math, while having fun and developing logical thinking, spatial reasoning, creative problem solving, and number sense together.
Participants leverage the engineering design process, as they brainstorm, collaborate, design, and build their way to creative solutions. Design challenges allow students to get an intuitive sense of mathematics, practice creative strategies for solving problems, and develop the innovative thinking skills they’ll need to solve math problems and prepare for career success in the 21st century. Meets California Mathematics Content Standards.
