N2K (1hour)


DESCRIPTION:

This course will focus on providing fun and inspiring ways to engage students in math.  We will be using a variety of interactive games and fun tips and tricks to strengthen foundational math skills and concepts and to increase our calculating ability.

 TEACHER:

My name is Amber Gates.  My husband and I have been married for 20 years.  We have five children and have been homeschooling for twelve years.  Our 15-year-old was the 2017 National Number Knockout (N2K) champion (N2K is a national mental math competition).  We have used N2K in our home for children with widely varying math abilities. We love how the basics of the game can help an elementary student who is struggling with math . . .and higher levels can challenge even students with adept mental math abilities.  We are excited to share this game (along with other math games and tips and tricks) with our homeschool community and hope it inspires your students to have some fun with numbers! We will be offering students (especially the 6th-8th graders) the opportunity to share equations that they have worked on at home with the class.  They will also have the opportunity to bring questions about tricky math concepts that they may like demonstrated/explained during class.
