Upcoming Academic Events
This workshop is designed to erase student fears about word problems and the problem solving process. Students will work on various activities ranging from identifying pattern games, to figuring out the cost of an item pre-tax, to truth tables. Emphasis will be placed on understanding information given, developing analytical skills, using algebra to aid in problem solving, and de-mystifying word problems.
Students will get a review of the addition and multiplication principles that are involved in one step solving equations. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and work on a variety of equations that involve clearing fractions, simplifying, and distribution.
This workshop will teach strategies and techniques to help students to discover and develop imaginative and creative writing and how this can help to improve academic writing skills. Students will learn to silence the “internal critic,” feelings of doubt and fear and learn the importance of confidence and creativity.
