Flint Hill Academic and Enrichment Camps

Virtual Flint Hill Academic and Enrichment Camps

Please Note: All academic camps and courses will be virtual in 2021. Campers must have internet, access to a device such as a tablet or computer, printing capabilities, and an email address.

Enrichment

Virtual Robotics Exploration

Campers will experience the basics of turning a machine into a robot. Using Parallax’s Cyber:bot, students will use the built-in breadboard to create sensors including touch sensors and light sensors. Campers will be exposed to basic programming in python to code a plan for their robot to follow. At the end of camp, students will have created a robot that will navigate a room looking for the darkest area while avoiding physical obstacles.

Campers will need access to a computer with a USB Type-A port. Each camper will need to purchase a cyber:bot kit. Information about ordering supplies will be provided with enrollment information.

Virtual Clay Camp: CLAY-ZY Days of Summer

This camp will get you hooked on CLAY! So, get fired up! Come explore the exciting world of ceramics in this two-week virtual program. Live instructor demonstrations, practice and group discussions will occur in our Google Hangout Meets. Clay campers will have an opportunity to work both independently and collaboratively throughout each meeting with both peers and instructors. This camp offers exposure to a wide range of techniques and projects while developing good relationships throughout our studio community. Clay Camp is designed to offer opportunities for all skill levels to develop their technical ability with clay while finding their unique voice as a maker. Individual instruction will promote creative expression and skill development. Each camper will complete a body of work they can both use and admire for many years to come.

No experience is necessary and all levels are welcome. Our session will end with a celebratory online exhibition of selected works.

Materials:
All clay, glaze materials and firings are included in the camp fee. Each camper will need to pick up a 50lb box of clay prior to the first day of camp (included in camp). Participants will also be supplied with a beginner tool kit and supplies.

Full Credit Courses

Virtual Geometry

In this course, students engage in lessons that focus on developing the critical thinking skills and habits of mind to solve advanced math problems. Taught through the use of exploration, pattern recognition, and technology, students will develop ideas and experiences that lead to formal geometric proofs and postulates. Creative problem-solving and ingenuity are critical skills for the course. Students will get instruction and feedback on their development. Investigations include an introduction to the language of Geometry, recognition of invariants, congruence, areas and volumes, similarity, and circles. Students are required to meet expectations in understanding and mastering concepts, and developing independent applications. Students use the TI graphing calculator in the course. (1 Year Credit)

 

Students can expect to work synchronously (live class sessions via Google Meet) from 9-10 a.m. with their instructor and/or classmates. Students can expect to work asynchronously (independent work on and offline) for 2-4 hours per day. Instructors will be available via email or students may schedule office hours.

Session:
June 14-July 16 (No classes Monday, July 5)

Time:
9-10a.m. Synchronous, 10a.m.-1p.m. Asynchronous

Grades:
Rising grades 9-11 with prerequisite - Algebra 1 or equivalent

Cost:
$2,000

Virtual Algebra II with Trigonometry

This course builds on the fundamental concepts of the variables, equations, and graphs studied in Algebra I, namely the properties and applications of numbers, graphs, tables, expressions, equations, and inequalities (as applied to linear, quadratic, trigonometric, polynomial, rational, logarithmic, and exponential functions). In addition, students are given a thorough foundation in the concepts and applications of triangular and circular trigonometry. Applications of mathematics to real-world problems, effective reasoning skills, and problem-solving strategies are emphasized. Students need to be able to make connections between the mathematical concepts studied and other subject areas, to use mathematical language when modeling situations, to effectively and efficiently use a graphing calculator and other applicable technology, and to analyze and avoid common errors. Students are required to meet expectations in understanding and mastering concepts, and developing independent applications. This course does not have NCAA approval as a core course for potential Division I and II athletes. (1 Year Credit)

Virtual Precalculus Honors

This course builds upon concepts introduced in Algebra II-Trigonometry Honors/Accelerated Algebra II, and is designed to prepare students for college-level work in AP® Calculus BC. In addition, emphasis is placed on the applications of a graphing calculator, real-world problems, and proofs of formulas and identities. Besides covering all the topics from Pre-Calculus, the course includes additional topics from part “A” of Calculus “ABC” so that students can progress to AP® Calculus BC. These additional topics include polar coordinates, parametric equations, sequence and series, and an introduction to limits and derivatives as well as area under the curve. Students are expected to explore unfamiliar ideas independently. Students are required to meet expectations in understanding and mastering concepts, and independent learning.
