The Beverly Hills Math Factor— a math enrichment program designed to help students get ahead for the upcoming school year, will host its summer enrichment program starting in July.
Math Factors goal is to help bridge that gap in a fun and exciting way. The program is directed by BHUSD math teachers Jeff Harris and Jesse Meyen.
“Studies have shown that over the summer, students lose over two and a half months of math knowledge that they have learned the previous school year,” said Co-Director Jeff Harris.
Student engagement is a vital part of the MF program as students will learn math through the use of games, technology such as the iPad, music, and videos.
This hands-on engagement will help stimulate and perpetuate a lifelong interest in math for all students.
Classes will be held at Temple Emanuel Academy Day School, 8844 Burton Way. Classes begin July 5 and run through August 11. Three-week and Six-week classes are available.
