ENROLLMENT OPENS Mar. 15, 2020 – STREAM: Geometric Thinking K-3 (Apr. 5-25, 2020)

This 3-week module investigates conceptually related and interdependent ideas about geometric shapes, geometric structure, and spatial relationships. Geometry is a particularly relevant area of mathematics for young children, who are naturally curious about their physical world. Participants will: examine properties and categorization of two-dimensional shapes; explore composition and decomposition of geometric shapes; develop deeper understanding of spatial relations and spatial structuring.

ENROLLMENT OPENS Mar. 15, 2020 – STREAM: Geometric Thinking 4-7 (Apr. 5-25, 2020)

This 3-week module examines learning progressions in geometry with a focus on foundational ideas that promote geometric understanding. Participants will:
recognize geometric shapes and their components (e.g., sides, angles, faces);
learn properties of geometric figures and categorization based on those properties; develop strategies for composing and decomposing geometric shapes; engage in spatial relations and spatial structuring.
