Math clubs provide students who are interested in math or talented at the subject to develop and practice their mathematical abilities in an enjoyable, energetic setting. Teachers or math club advisers can lead students in a number of activities that will sharpen math skills, increase learning, be fun and make children excited to learn about math.
At Garden City Elementary, students in grades 3-5 participate in Crazy 8s.
Crazy 8s is the idea of Beth Malone, 4th and 5th grade math teacher.
She is supported by 5th grade teacher, Jeanelle Rhodes.
Crazy 8s is a recreational, hands-on after-school math club designed to get kids fired up about math.
Every week Crazy 8ers build stuff, run and jump, make music, make a mess… all while bonding with new friends over math.
With Crazy 8s, kids will build glow-in-the-dark structures, crack secret spy codes and play games like Toilet Paper Olympics
