These lessons provide topical enrichment in a wide range of mathematics. The goal is to help young students see the
Elementary School Enrichment
breadth and diversity of mathematical thought. They are aimed at 4th and 5th grade accelerated students. They were originally created for use in Colorado Springs School District 11 with the support of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the United States Air Force Academy. There are 70 lessons grouped into 12 different units, none of which require any specialized background for student or teacher. The design is for each lesson to take 15-25 minutes of student time and be appropriate for independent work (such as during center time in a classroom). These lessons are appropriate for homeschool and classroom use. Solutions and teacher guides are provided. They are provided here for you to use and/or modify. If you use the lessons, please email me to let me know! My research area is geometric function theory on one complex variable and a bit of complex dynamics. I also enjoy Presentation & Papersthinking about pedagogical ideas, such as teaching precalculus mathematics, faculty development, and innovative ways to teach classes for math majors.
