Title

Math Investigations with a 5th Grader

Description

I am working this semester tutoring a 5th grader at Wheelock School, who's math skills are above grade level. Part of our time together involves engaging him in mathematical investigations that stimulate him to experiment with mathematical ideas, formulate generalizations and conjectures, and then attempt to justify them. This talk will present some of those investigations I have worked with him on. I will also include a rationale behind why the specific investigations were chosen and how he and I worked through the problems.
