Trapezium Math Club
Trapezium Math Club is a math enrichment program designed to build strong math skills for students in grades k-5. Many of our students arrive at Trapezium hating math and leave the program loving it. Our students tend to stay with the program throughout elementary school and are prepared to take the most rigorous math courses in middle and high school.
Using our team-based sports model, coaches meet with students once per week for 1.5 hours to prepare for ongoing math events.
Each term at Trapezium is dedicated to a theme. We use this theme to teach children very hard math in preparation for two things: our ongoing math reasoning contests (conducted during club time) and a public culminating event dedicated to our theme. See below for descriptions our Fall, Winter and Spring themes.
The Fall event culminates with a Math Expo which gives mathclub students an opportunity to share all that they've learned.
Our Winter theme is “Mathemagic.” From January through March, students prepare for the culminating Mathemagic event, a stage play which infuses impressive acts of mental math with humor and audience participation. Family and friends are encouraged to attend and cheer on the kids as they show off their new math skills!
Our Mathemagic Show will be:
- Sunday, March 22
- 2:00 p.m.
- Venice Island Performing Arts Center (7 Lock Street, Philadelphia, PA 19127)
- Purchase tickets at EventBrite
Our Spring theme is dedicated to preparing students for the annual MonsterMathathon. In this “Amazing Race” inspired event, student teams of equal math level compete by using math to solve clues found along an outdoor course. This year, the MonsterMathathon will be held at:
- Independence National Historic Park
- Sunday, May 31, 2019
- Time (TBD)
