Break the Code for 8-10

Break The Code! Ages 8-10

Archeologists suspect a code is buried within hieroglyphics extracted from a pyramid in Egypt, but cannot make sense of it. Your team has been brought in to decipher it. Can you break the code?

Work with your fellow archeologists to crack the code by solving logic problems and discovering the meaning of the mysterious hieroglyphics. We’ll explore how math is essentially the same as creating and cracking codes. If you can crack the code, where does it lead next? Can you generate your own code to communicate with them?

We must do more than teach math

It no longer feels okay to be silent. As I watch the events in Minneapolis, Louisville and Brunswick unfold, I am filled with sadness, anger, and an urgency to do more.

Dr. Robert Berry, someone I have long admired, a beloved education professor, a past president of NCTM, a Black man, recently posted: 

"To my mathematics educators, We Teach More Than Mathematics. We must engage in anti-racist and trauma-informed education in our daily practices...BTW, I’m not OK."

At Woot Math, our work is focused on helping teachers ensure that all students have the math foundation they need to succeed. But Dr. Berry is right. We must do more than teach math. We must work to ensure that Black students have access not only to a safe and welcoming place to learn but also a safe and welcoming place to live.

The truth is they don’t. In our country, they never have. While we have repeatedly been shaken by the brutality captured on video, the reality is that for the Black community this is not new. 

As we strive to figure out how to do more, we have begun by financially supporting the Center for Policing Equity (CPE), an organization at the forefront of addressing bias in policing. I greatly admire the work of Dr. Tracie Keesee, a remarkable leader, who is the co-founder of CPE, former Deputy of Training at NYPD, and a retired 25-year veteran of the Denver Police Department. 

We also plan to read, listen, and learn from our Black colleagues, leaders, friends. We will identify ways that we can support and amplify their voice, their power. They are not alone. We stand and act in solidarity with them.

Break The Code! Ages 11-14

One day a mysterious message was received from unknown origins; it’s meaning has baffled scientists ever since. Put your logical thinking to the test to break the code.

Work with your peers to crack the code by solving logic problems and discovering the meaning of the mysterious message you received. We’ll explore how math is essentially the same as creating and cracking codes. Your eventual goal – use the key you discovered to create your own message, and see if anyone (or anything) responds.

Becoming a Wizard Escape Camp

Becoming a Wizard ​ Ages 11-14

Learn the skills you’ll need to become a wizard. Help unravel the riddles that keep you imprisoned and you may find an owl waiting on your windowsill!

You have been imprisoned for years, but have finally built up enough supplies to escape. Can you decipher the text from the ancient spell book and following the directions to create potions to aid in your escape? You’ll need to use transmutation to alter the size of objects around you so all the pieces fit together, and then answer the final riddle of the sphinx. Then maybe, just maybe, she’ll let you out.

Woot Tutor Online Classes – FAQ

What are Woot Tutor’s online classes?
Woot Tutor’s online classes are designed for small group instruction. We believe something magical happens when you combine a terrific instructor with a small group of students who are all focused on an engaging topic.

Whether it is a math camp or course, our curriculum is designed to challenge each student around important topics and ways of thinking that leads to future success in school. The small class size allows instructors to understand the learning style of each student and provide individualized feedback that attends to the strengths and weaknesses of each learner.

Why choose Woot Tutor?
At the heart of all great instruction, is a teacher that cares and believes in a young person. With that in mind, we are picky about who teaches these classes. This summer, we are delighted that all of the instructors are experienced math teachers and professors that we have worked with for many years. They are not only content experts, they are beloved by students because they care, and because they are able to bring math to life in a way that is deeply engaging.

What are the class norms?
It is simple. Teachers and students agree to…

    • Be present: Attend sessions on time and be an active learner
    • Be respectful: Treat each person with respect and value their strengths
    • Be all in: Seriously. Great classes are only great if everyone brings their all.

What does Woot Tutor use for Video Conferencing?
Woot Tutor developed a video conferencing platform specifically for providing a great experience for online learning. Don’t take our word, here is what The College Board wrote about it…

“[Woot Tutor’s platform] far outpaces what we have seen in the market… We’re excited to explore how else College Board and Woot Tutor can collaborate to connect students to the support they need to achieve college and career success.”

Unlike many other video conferencing platforms, Woot Tutor was developed specifically for K-12 instruction of mathematics. In addition to video and audio, there is an integrated whiteboard for shared work, there are breakout spaces that the instructor controls, and the curriculum is integrated into the space to make it easy for teachers and students to move through shared problems and ideas.

What are the technology and software requirements?

What is the policy on the age range?
We carefully choose the ages that are appropriate for specific courses and camps. Not only do we want the material to be age appropriate, but we want the cohort of students to be reasonably close in age so there is naturally more connection. To make sure that we provide a great experience to all students, we ask that you adhere to the guidelines when you sign up your child.

The course provides personal face to face sessions with a caring and experienced teacher in a supportive learning environment. Students have access to a rich library of content and assignments between sessions.

The course breakdown is as follows:

Week 1: Describing patterns and visualizing change
Week 2: Finding rules to represent patterns
Week 3: Graphing relationships between variables

They are not only content experts, they are beloved by students because they care, and because they are able to bring math to life in a way that is deeply engaging.

What are the class norms?
It is simple. Teachers and students agree to…

    • Be present: Attend sessions on time and be an active learner
    • Be respectful: Treat each person with respect and value their strengths
    • Be all in: Seriously. Great classes are only great if everyone brings their all.

What does Woot Tutor use for Video Conferencing?
Woot Tutor developed a video conferencing platform specifically for providing a great experience for online learning. Don’t take our word, here is what The College Board wrote about it…

“[Woot Tutor’s platform] far outpaces what we have seen in the market… We’re excited to explore how else College Board and Woot Tutor can collaborate to connect students to the support they need to achieve college and career success.”

Unlike many other video conferencing platforms, Woot Tutor was developed specifically for K-12 instruction of mathematics. In addition to video and audio, there is an integrated whiteboard for shared work, there are breakout spaces that the instructor controls, and the curriculum is integrated into the space to make it easy for teachers and students to move through shared problems and ideas.

Course Description

Algebra is magical – it is interesting and it makes sense! Ideally all students would develop algebraic thinking skills at young ages to build success in future grades. This course is designed to develop core skills like seeing patterns, describing change, and searching for unknowns. Students develop number sense so they can take control of their learning and harness the power and magic that is mathematics.

The course provides personal face to face sessions with a caring and experienced teacher in a supportive learning environment. Additionally, students have access to a rich library of content and practice between sessions.

The course breakdown is as follows:

Week 1: Waving the wand of number sense
Week 2: Using symbols to represent chunks
Week 3: Visualizing patterns – What comes next
Week 4: Exploring what changes and what stays the same
Week 5: Making sense of the equal sign
Week 6: Exploring unknowns
Week 7: The magic of doing and undoing
Week 8: Structure: The crystal ball of algebra
