At Eagle’s Nest we believe in creating mathematicians who know how to understand and use numbers competently. We help to instill strong number sense and teach various methods of accurate and efficient computation. We also strive to demonstrate to the boys that math can be a force for good in the world and that it is useful in their daily lives. For example, they may use proportional reasoning to help plan out that day’s schedule, or they may use math analysis skills to help solve a real problem in their Eagle’s Nest group. We teach them to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships, using tools such as diagrams and graphs. Our goal is to help each boy become comfortable using and understanding math at all levels. We provide both individual and small group activities to fortify math learning and to make it fun.
