Stonehill students involved in the NUMB3RS Project are given the unique opportunity to think in new ways about the teaching and learning of mathematics. Working as teams, Stonehill students are challenged to design and then implement mathematics problems of their own creation. Through these experiences, they learn not only about the power and beauty of mathematics, but also about best practices in mathematics education.
Through exposure to projects that employ mathematics in non-traditional ways, the goal of the NUMB3RS Project is to move the thinking of both Stonehill students, and the PK-12 students we work with, beyond rote memorization. The NUMB3RS Project helps develop a deeper conceptual understanding of BIG IDEAS in mathematics.
