Infinite Fun /Irrational Experience

Everyone can do math, says Mr. Mustafa, and you can learn new concepts with toothpicks, paper, scissors and other simple tools.

Learn the beauty of math and begin to understand that math is the amazing language humans invented to discover the form and every pattern of the entire universe itself.

Among their different activities, rising 5th graders will create items such as prisms and pyramids using toothpicks and gumdrop, while rising 6th graders will draw parabolas and create Mobius strips, just for starters.

You’ll keep your math knowledge fresh for Middle School and and get ahead for the coming year — and get a whole different view of math itself!
