6th Grade Math
I believe that math should interactive, relatable, and Fun, in order to build a strong Math foundation. Math is everywhere it is translatable, regardless of the culture, language or place in the world, 2+2 will equal 4. I want my scholars to have the ability to visualize math being a solution to real- world situations and problems.
