About the program:
Learning Mathematics can be FUN!
The Museumís Childrenís Mathematics in Design & History program is offered as a school field trip opportunity on a year-round basis for public and private schools, after-school programs and for summer camps. Mathematics concepts including symbols, shapes, angles, quantities and interrelationships of quantities have been incorporated into this Museum program that was developed in year 2006 in partnership with the Mathematics Department of the School District of Palm Beach County, Florida. The Museumís math program was first introduced in 2006 for the Museumís Childrenís Mathematics Narrated Bus Tours of Historic Delray Beach.
In November 2009, the Museum opened in a donated 8,000 square feet facility located inside the Boynton Beach Mall in Boynton Beach, Florida. The facility has been renovated to include three gallery spaces to host rotating exhibitions. As a result, the math program has been expanded to now be incorporated into the exhibitions on display at the Museum and this expanded program has been named Childrenís Mathematics in Design & History. This field trip program is offered and conducted at the Museum's facility in Boynton Beach, Florida.
There are numerous Mathematics teaching and testing opportunities represented in the various designs of the artifacts, fashions and toys on display at the Museum.The Mathematics component of this school field trip program was developed using guidelines of the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test) with the goal of helping students to improve their basic math comprehension.
