Did you know that there are math tricks that can allow you to read someone’s mind? Or that you can predict what day of the week a particular date will fall on in 40 years? We will create flat figures whose top and bottom keep changing color! And toothpicks...who would have thought you could be so tricky with simple wooden toothpicks? Learn to do these tricks (and others) and find out how mathematics makes them possible.

Bonjour! Bienvenue à la classe de français! In this class we will learn as much French as possible in five days while also enjoying the delights of French culture. We’ll explore food, art, architecture, and music to start. Prepare for a whirlwind tour through the streets of Paris using the famous metro, well-practiced French conversations, and a certain je ne sais quoi as the French would say. This class will be magnifique! It is perfect for the student who is interested in different cultures and open to new languages. Pack your berets!
