Baker Math Teams

  • What? Baker has two after-school Math Teams for interested Baker students currently in Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8. The teams will be led by Mr. Goldstein (Grade 6 Teacher). Both teams will focus on group problem-solving and communication in math. The differences between the teams will be the meeting day and the level of material. Students will be welcome on whichever team they feel most comfortable.

    Who? Baker students in grades 5-8.
