Along the way, they meet Leonardo Da Vinci and engage in hands-on activities that promote creativity, multi-subject integration and collaborative learning. Learners experiment with mirror writing, observe patterns, reveal anatomical proportions and create masterpieces fit for a king. Most importantly, they develop a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of the world simply by asking, “I wonder why..."

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics:

  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.1: Draw points, lines, line segments,
    rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel
    lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.3: Recognize a line of symmetry for a
    two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure
    can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify
    line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.A.2: Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.G.B.3: Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
  • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.RP.A.1: Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities.
