Pompano Beach, Florida (PressExposure) April 28, 2011 -- President and math teacher Wanda McDowell will be offering Project UNITEE this summer 2011. Project UNITEE (Urging Noticeable Improvement Through Excessive Exercises) is a free six-week summer math boot camp program for middle school students who struggle with math. It will consist of math drills, puzzles, timed tests, and challenging math problems. "This program is beneficial for parents who want their kids to work at their full potential," McDowell Said. "With the push for higher academic achievement in math and more rigorous curriculum, it is expected that some students will need extra help and a little push, which is what Project UNITEE provides.
Project UNITEE will be offered June 20- July 29, 2011, Monday through Friday. The purpose of Project UNITEE is to strengthen your ability to explain and justify procedures for multiplying and dividing fractions. Master word problems, apply formulas for surface area and volume of shapes, evaluate one and two-step equations. Interpret graphs, puzzles, patters, and tables. You will also be able to set up and solve linear equations and inequalities with one variable using algebraic methods, models, and/or graphs. (Use real life situations). Evaluate simple algebraic expressions for given variables. (e.g., 3a - b for a=3 and b=7). Justify and apply formulas for surface are and volume of pyramids, prisms, cylinders, and cones. The program will be offered through a virtual classroom, chat, email, and forum. Our classroom is equipped with virtual whiteboard. Class times T.B.D. (to be determined). At the end of the program, three winners will be chosen based on participation and test grades. The first prize winner will receive a one-hundred dollar Visa gift card.
