MATH CAMP    Fee: $225
Register your child for a math camp for students (4th - 8th grade students only), who wish to be exposed to higher level math than they are currently seeing in school or wish to review. Topics include: develop logical and critical thinking, visual thinking, strategic planning, review of prior mathematics, introduction to new concepts, and practice problems from math competitions including AMC/MathCounts. Boost your math skills, stretch your mind, and make new friends. Minimum math background: Knowledge of math operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). Oakton reserves the right to dismiss any child if it's determined that the student does not possess sufficient math background to meaningfully participate at this time.
