# Youth Worker Trainings

Mathematics instruction is a daunting task, and even those who are well trained in providing youth services may have trouble effectively leading mathematics intervention.  MathPOWER offers a number of trainings designed to help youth workers from varied programmatic settings increase their impact, by giving them the tools they need to teach math well.

## Math Games Training

Engage students in learning and fun through a variety of skill-based math games. Learn how to play the games, when to use them, and for which particular students. We offer grade band workshops: Early education/child care, Elementary K-5, Middle School 6-8.  Click here to learn more and get information about scheduling a workshop.

## Curriculum Explanations

Common Core and my current scope and sequence. How do we rethink our instruction?   How do I adjust?   What does it all mean? In this training, you will investigate the Common Core standards and their components and the implications for instruction. We offer trainings on integrating the common core into your course of instruction for grades Pre k-Algebra I.

Puzzle of the Week

I am thinking of one of these five cards:

Which one am I thinking of? Here are some clues:

• The value of my card is a prime number.
• The values of adjacent cards add up to a multiple of 3.
• My card is next to a card which is next to the 2 of hearts.

Here is how to follow the clues:

1. The value of my card is a prime number, so it could have been 7 of clubs, 7 of diamonds, or 2 of hearts.
2. The values of my two neighbours add up to a multiple of 3, so it could have been 7 of diamonds or 2 of hearts.
3. My card is next to a card which is next to the 2 of hearts, so it could only be the 2 of hearts.
