RAD Academy 2013

Reasoning, Algebra & Diversity Academy

CSU Chico’s Center for Mathematics and Science Education and the Mathematics and Science Teaching Initiative (MSTI) bring you a unique opportunity to explore algebraic reasoning.

Going to High School next year?

This event is for rising 9th graders who are currently taking algebra in 8th grade, or those students planning to take algebra in 9th grade. This academy is open to all students of varying math abilities.

WHEN: Two-Week Program - August 5-15, 2013 -- Monday - Thursday ONLY 8:30a-12:30p (lunch included)

WHERE: CSU, Chico Campus

COST: $25 (May be waived with demonstrated financial need)

RAD Academy Details:

Predict the result of simulated bungee jumps and measure movement with motion detectors; maybe even determine the time of a predicted end of the world! You will work in small groups on a series of projects and problems, sharing your thinking and approaches. In the end, we hope you will see algebra as a powerful tool, one that can open up doors and provide opportunities.

RAD Academy will be led by Jorgen Berglund (CSU, Chico) and Dan Sours (Chico High), along with CSU, Chico university student teaching assistants.
