Opportunities Available for Spring 2014
The Numb3rs Project
The Numb3rs Project is an after-school program offered at the Butler Elementary School in Avon, Massachusetts. Throughout these six-week programs, Stonehill students work collaboratively with Butler students (grades 4 – 6) to stimulate enthusiasm and love for mathematics through the exploration of numbers and problem solving.
Through exposure to projects that employ mathematics in non-traditional ways, the goal of the Numb3rs Project is to move student understanding beyond rote memorization to the development of deep conceptual understanding of BIG IDEAS in mathematics.
The Numb3rs Project is an initiative supported through a grant to Stonehill College from the National Science Foundation (NSF)’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program.
Two Sessions for Spring 2014
During the spring of 2014 we are recruiting for two sessions; one meets Mondays and one meets Wednesdays. Sessions are one hour and run from 3 to 4 pm. Therefore, you should be prepared to leave campus by 2:15 and you will return by 4:30 pm. In addition to school based sessions, you will be required to meet as a team (alongside your faculty advisor) to plan for each session. Stonehill students will receive a stipend at the completion of the program.
