Math Adventures – Grade 3-4 and 5-6 Students

Math Adventures is supported in part by the Canadian Mathematical SocietyCMS

The students will explore interesting and exciting mathematics, discussing and solving problems on

  • Numbers
  • Patterns
  • Geometry
  • Logic
  • Math Games and Puzzles

Each class will begin with an opening problem, followed by the homework review. After presentation of a lesson by instructors, time will be devoted to independent work.

Please keep in mind that we offer enrichment, and not remedial programs. Our classes are intended for the students who are already doing well in school math and would like to experience something more challenging and interesting.

2021/22 Program Information

We will offer Math Adventures in-person on Sundays 10:00-11:30am starting on September 26, 2021. There will be 8 classes in September-November and 8 classes in January-March.

Dates for classes in Winter term:  January 16, 23, 30; February 6, 13, 27; March 6, 13.
Note that there will be no classes on February 20 (Family day).
Update: The last class in this program will be on March 13, and not on March 27 as previously announced.

The program is designed in a way that students may take the same level (3-4 or 5-6) for two years in a row. While the curriculum is essentially same each year, the selection of problems will change.

Please note that there is no free parking on campus.

Students will be given paper hand-outs at each class. Our policy is not to issue any course materials in the electronic form, to protect our copyright.

COVID information: We will follow all Carleton University policies. Exact details will be posted closer to the start of classes.

Update January 2022: Carleton University is operating online until further notice. As a result, our Math Adventures classes will also switch to online mode until we are allowed to return back to class.

We will adjust the format of this program to the following: there will be a pre-recorded lecture posted at the beginning of each week, accompanied by a list of problems related to the topic of the lecture. Students will individually work on this set of problems. On Sunday there will be a 30-minute live class in Zoom with an Instructor and (at most) 5 students. In this class, students will have an opportunity to ask questions about the lecture, and each student will be expected to present a solution of one of the problems from the assigned set of problems.

Update February 2022: We will be returning to in-person classes on February 27.
