# Menlo Park Summer Math Camp

About a 2 minute drive from Mathnasium’s summer math camp is the popular Susie Cakes. Susie Cakes is a bakery that has cakes, cupcakes (both filled and unfilled), puddings, cheesecakes, cookies, pies, and bars. The cake flavors includes chocolate, red velvet, german chocolate, carrot, coconut, vanilla, and marble. She has banana and vanilla pudding as well as cream and seasonal fruit filled pies. This bakery has chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles, lemon squares, and much more. Both you and your child will love this bakery.

Mathnasium’s summer camp is beneficial for your child because we will help them prepare for their math class for the upcoming school year. We do not want your child to walk into their math class on the first day of school and forget everything they learned the previous year.  At our summer math camp, we can also help them go ahead so that math will be a breeze for them.

Your child also does not have to go to Mathnasium’s summer math camp everyday. There are loads of opportunities for you to quiz your child on their math skills. Here are some questions you can ask your child when you go to Susie Cakes:

1. You get a slice of Susie’s Famous Red Velvet Cake for \$6.25 and your child gets a peanut butter filled chocolate cupcake for \$3.25. What is the total cost? If tax is 9.25% how much is your order with tax?
2. A 6 inch (diameter) layer cake at Susie’s costs \$36.00.
A) If you split the cake into 12 pieces, how much does each piece cost?
B) What is the area of the base of the cake? (Area = pi * radius * radius)
C) If the volume of the cake is 75.398 inches cubed, what is the height of the cake?

# Summer Math Camp in Palo Alto

Summer is a great time for your child to practice their math skills. By refreshing what they already know, they will be ready for math in the upcoming school year. A great way to ensure that everything your child learned does not go to waste is by enrolling them at Mathnasium’s summer math camp. This summer camp is perfect way for your child to brush up their math skills and have fun. What makes this summer camp so unique is that you get to choose the day and time your child attends. This ensures that your child can still go to more recreational summer camps and not miss out on any events they have planned.

After a session at Mathnasium’s summer math camp, you can treat your child to a delicious and healthy meal at LYFE Kitchen in Palo Alto. They have a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Here are some examples of what they have for breakfast: different styles of eggs, breakfast wraps, pancakes, yogurt bowls and more. For lunch and dinner they have grilled vegetables, different kinds of soups, salads, flatbreads, sandwiches and burgers, chicken, steak, and much more. All of their meals are less than 600 calories and they have gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian options. Therefore, everyone can find something they like and want to eat on their menu.

While at LYFE Kitchen, you can quiz your child on what they learned at Mathnasium’s summer math camp. Here are some examples:

1. You go with your child to LYFE Kitchen. You get a Kale Caesar Salad (360 calories) for \$6.99. Your child gets a cheeseburger (570 calories) for \$9.04.
A) How much did the two meals cost together?
B) If tax is 9.25%, how much is the meal with tax?
C) If you pay with a 20 dollar bill how much money will you get back?
D) On average, we are only supposed to eat 2000 calories per day. Of the 2000 calories, what percent did both you and your child eat during this meal?

# Menlo Park Summer Math Camp

A great way to spend a summer day is to drop your child off at Mathnasium’s summer math camp. At Mathnasium, we will ensure your child will not go through “brain drain” this summer. (Brain drain is when your child forgets everything they learned in the previous school year). We will prepare your child for the upcoming school year in math by reviewing old skills and teaching them new ones

A great way to motivate your child to brush up on their math skills and to go to Mathnasium’s summer math camp is by treating them to a fun day out before or after their session. Every year, Menlo Park has a festival called the Connoisseurs’ Marketplace. This year, this festival will take place on July 19 –  20. This festival will include live music, great food made my chefs, a car show, garden exhibits, and fun events for kids. The fun events for kids includes bungee jumping, a climbing wall, bouncy houses, a carnival and train ride, hula hooping, dolls, face painting, henna tattoos and much more. Your child will most definitely have a great time.

What makes this festival so great is that it is only a 2 minute car ride from Mathnasium’s summer math camp. That means you can drop your child off at Mathnasium, pick them up after an hour, and then take them to the festival!

While at the festival, you can also quiz your child on their math skills. Here are some questions you can ask them.

1. The train at the festival moves at a speed of 15 miles per hour. If you ride the train for 20 minutes, how many miles did the train ride for?
2. If the oldest car at the car show is from 1927, how many years ago was the car built?
3. If you buy a hamburger for \$8.25 and a lemonade for \$2.25, how much money did you spend?

Clearly, the Connoisseurs’ Marketplace is not only a great way to spend time with your child, but it also serves as a way for your child to practice their math skills. Check out this website for more information about the marketplace.
