The Summer Oshkosh Mathematics Academy (SOMA) features student exploration and a creative problem-solving approach to mathematics. Participants will see aspects of mathematics and topics that are not typically part of the middle grades curriculum, and our activities will help middle schoolers develop mathematical habits of mind by actually doing mathematics, that is, investigating, experimenting, posing questions, modeling problems, conjecturing, justifying solutions and critiquing the reasoning of others.
