SUPPORT

We are excited to offer support for our resources!

MATH + CODING, 1-8

SELF-SERVE WORKSHOPS

Designed to serve as a base lesson plan — a set of activities to select from and adapt — for diverse learning settings (f2f, hybrid, online, parents/children).

  • Grades 1-2: geometric/motion patterns & rules; sequential & concurrent events
  • Grades 3-4: shapes, angles, repeating patterns, variables; repeating & nested events
  • Grades 5-6: algebraic expressions, inequalities; conditional statements
  • Grades 7-8: linear/non-linear relationships; sub-programs, code efficiency, data analysis

See the story The Pleasure of Making 10 at https://learnx.ca/wonder/rene-descartes/, featuring Rene Descartes, who said “I think, therefore I am”.

Did Rene Descartes really exist?

Or was he a figment of his own imagination?
