Viking mathematicians will learn to use new models and methods to think about problems as well as solve them. Viking mathematicians will make connections, discover relationships, figure out strategies that can be used to solve problems, and explain their thinking. Viking mathematicians will learn to cooperate with other students as a member of a study team. Being a part of a team means speaking up and interacting with other people by explaining your ideas, listening to what others say and asking questions if there is something they don’t understand. Viking mathematicians will complete hands-on activities and lessons to help build their mathematical understanding.
