MATH PILOTS

Young learners tend to find math uninteresting or boring. Our high energy environment helps students develop their love for math early on. Math Pilots help kids find the fun in math, fostering a growth mindset and critical thinking as a result, through exciting activities and team challenges. 

CLUB INFO

OBJECTIVE

The Math Pilots classroom is structured to help young learners develop essential life skills like critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. School math teaches kids to learn a problem and how to solve it, progressing into a higher level of difficulty each year. Our curriculum shifts focus away from the traditional path of academic progression, instead favouring a path that fosters critical thinking and creative problem solving skills that can be applied to every problem. The club is also designed to help make learning social. Students are placed into teams with three or four others, cycled monthly, where they will collaborate to tackle difficult problems. This social environment helps them find joy in learning whilst also accelerating their academic progress.

ACTIVITIES

Along with the weekly lesson, students will also get a chance to engage in various activities designed to improve their personal progress. In personal challenges, students compete against their peers in a test of quick thinking. In team challenges, teams compete against other teams to discuss and solve difficult problems. Whatever the activity, students are always encouraged to stay positive and persistent in their struggles to overcome the challenge ahead of them. Students can also earn PACE Points, which can be used at the end of the semester to trade for goodies!

HOMEWORK

PACE assigns mandatory homework across all of our clubs. Students are also given access to online resources via Google Classroom.


At the end of each Math Pilots class, students will receive a weekly homework assignment to help them practice and improve their understanding of the lesson. The homework will be difficult as it is designed to be a challenge of critical thinking and persistence. When this happens, students are encouraged to ask their peers or instructor for advice. After homework review the following week, students will be given access to a detailed solution set that they can use to help them understand the problems they had trouble solving.
