Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Finding the Holy Grail of Math (All ages)
Still searching for the perfect math curriculum? Looking for a math curriculum that makes even the most reluctant math student enjoy math while producing chart topping math scores? Does just picking a math curriculum put knots in your stomach? This workshop will give you a map to find a curriculum that is just right for your child.

Student Challenge
Looking for a lively adventure to spice up the convention? Want to use your mad skills to compete with other students? Bring your friends and prepare to be challenged. This hands-on challenge will require teamwork and tenacity to come out on top. Students will work in teams to create, build, or complete given tasks. Grab a couple friends and meet us there.

Math for the Faint of Heart
The heart beats a little faster and the palms begin to sweat when the topic of math arises in homeschooling. Algebra can make even the veteran home educator weak in the knees. But God is completely aware of your mathematics ability and has called you to homeschool anyway. This workshop will give you recommendations, a few tips, and a whole
lot of encouragement with your math curriculum.

You Don’t Need a Calculator to Build a Pyramid
“When are we ever going to use this?” The time is now. There won’t be any paper or pencils as we discover how math principles can be used to build, create, and construct. No experience necessary. Warning: participants may engage in laughter and fun while learning about math topics.

Teen Challenge
This is the place to make friends,amaze your friends, and be amazed by your friends. Just bring a positive attitude and we’ll provide the fun.

High School Science:  Life After Magic School Bus
Ms. Frizzle has all the fun. High school science can still be fun. We’ll talk about requirements, options, experiments and more.

Math:  The Grinch That Stole Your Home School Happiness
The Who’s of Whoville happen to know, you’re gonna need math wherever you go. This workshop is going to help you to see, teaching math’s not as awful as you thought it to be.

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Rachel Gudeman and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
