Griffin Math

 

Math enrichment classes and activities for children

Based in Brooklyn, New York, Griffin Math leads hands-on and interactive math lessons primarily on subjects left out of school textbooks.  Because the focus is on enrichment, as opposed to acceleration, children of all math abilities and interests learn something new and find something to get excited about.

Griffin Math has engaged preschool and elementary school children with lessons on fractals, square numbers, probability, and topological "tricks" to name a few.

We provide after-school classes for students as well as in-class programs and consulting for schools. Get in touch with us if you have a student or class you would like to attend a Griffin Math program, or use the contact form at the bottom of this page to enquire whether our services are right for you.

Example Topics


spatial vizualization

Numerous studies have linked spatial visualization to mathematical ability.  We use language and games to reinforce children's spatial visualization.


estimation

Learning tools and techniques for generating accurate estimates is a useful skill.  It can be used in instances where approximations are enough, or as a tool for checking answers to complicated problems in higher grades. 


geometry

Starting with basic shapes and moving to fractals and topological tricks, we explore what properties shapes have and how they can be cut, flipped, and put together to create new shapes.
 


patterns and tesselations

A whole branch of mathematics is devoted to searching for primes.  Number patterns are incredibly important in the field of mathematics.


combinations, permutations and probability

How may ways are there to get to school?  How many outfits can you make from 3 shirts and 3 pairs of pants?  How likely is it you will have pasta for dinner?  We go over the math behind these everyday issues.


problem solving and computational tricks

In addition to new topics, we also help children acquire tricks to make basic arithmetic and problem solving easier and faster and work to reinforce lessons taught in the classroom through hands-on games and activities
