Instructor: Rad Turkin

Description: There are two time slots for this class, Monday and Sunday. This is an outdoor education class. This is a hands-on outdoor math class where students learn outside as they build using woodworking tools, building projects like a hoop house, and groing a garden. Think notebooks, pencils, saws and hammers. Parents will need to sign off a waiver so that their children can use tools. Students will learn mathematical concepts from hands-on outdoor projects. They will learn basic carpentry skills and mathematics at the same time. The instructor is both proficient to teach mathematics through high school and is an expert outdoor educator who has been designing this curriculum as a response to their unique educational experience. There will be a 20-minute drop-in for families to check out all the things the students had participated in and what they learned, at the end of the 10-week session.

Price: Monday: 8 sessions: $160, Siblings 140, Drop-in $25 if the teacher approves, make-up: not available for this class as it is only offered once a week. Sunday: 8 sessions: $200, Siblings $180, Drop-in $25
