Bard Math Circle loves Brownies!

When I learned that Marlboro Brownie Troop 60050 need to earn their Math Fun Badge I knew just how to help them. My daughter Jordan is in the troop and I spoke to the troop leader Rosemary Greiner and volunteered my Math Circle games! She was enthusiastic and I planned a fun evening for the girls.

The games were set up at different centers. The one player games were at one center, the SET game was at another center, two player games were at a third center and I had a worksheet of fun math problems at the fourth center. Since the girls needed five activities to get the badge Rosemary also counted when they each took turns being the cashier at their Girl Scout Cookie Booth Sale.

At the end of the night they earned their Math Fun Badge and I can honestly say everyone had fun and they were using and improving math skills!
