At our annual Open House, students and their families are invited to visit the school to interact with the teaching staff. This year we want to bring the joy of recreational math to the Open House to educate our school community that math is not just about worksheets and quizzes.
Cabrillo Middle School Open House
April 4 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
A Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival offers students advanced and thought-provoking mathematics in a social and cooperative atmosphere. Students choose among several tables offering problem sets, games, or puzzles with mathematical themes. They work as long as they wish, while a facilitator provides support and encouragement. Motivation comes from the social interaction, rather than from any prize, grade, medal, or ranking. Festivals are run locally and supported by a national network. They can address any level of student, from those struggling with mathematics to those soaring in achievement.
