New Talking Stick Math Circles for this Fall and next Spring


It's no secret that many kids say they hate math. Perhaps what they are saying is that they hate the way math is taught in the classroom.

For many years now, Talking Stick Learning Center has offered a Math Circle to the local community as one of our supplementary programs.

Our Math Circle has been recognized nationally and continues to be led by Rodi Steinig, a Mt. Airy math educator.

This fall and spring, we will be offering 4 brand new Math Circles. They are exciting, new programs custom designed by Rodi for specific age groups in our unique community.

Registration for all 4 Math circles is now open.

If you'd like your child to participate in this wonderful program, please register as soon as you can, as space does fill up quickly.
