Math is around kids everywhere, from saving (or spending!) their allowance, cooking with their parents, or seeing how tall they've grown in the last year. It is essential that students have both procedural knowledge and conceptual understanding of the subject, so they understand not only how to solve a problem but why it's done the way it's done. Our math team is lead by Kelsey Stein. Look at the math page here.
