Most students can't wait for summertime so they don't have to do any school work. But for some Handley High School students, the sum in summertime has to do with more work, not less.
"This year the tuition students paid a total of 37.06..."
Daniella will be a senior at Handley High School. A year ago, she moved to Winchester from Spain. One thing that didn't change is her love for math.
"I don't look at it as a subject. You know how sometimes there are people who like to put pieces together and make puzzles or color. That's something for me," said Daniella Bernaveu.
She's one of about twenty students involved in a summer math camp. It's a camp where these students are using math to figure out real life problems.
"Like if I moved from Winchester I would have to go to some other school and I really don't want to change so I was really interested in what the tuition would be, but the government didn't have the tuition fee for next year so I was like if they don't have it I can figure it out myself," said Bernaveu.
Another one of the Handley High School students that's in this camp calculated just how much money Handley raised by selling plaques on the seats in the auditorium.
"Handley raised $76,150 alone from those plaques..." said Handley High School Sophomore Surika Absar.
The students also learned a couple math tricks.
"You take a unique three digit number. You flip the number making the last digit the first digit ... And the first digit the last digit. You subtract them..." said Handley High School Junior Austin Joachim.
This camp turned these students into teachers.
"Some of the videos and stuff are going to be used in math classes for the next coming years so teachers can show it to the students and use it during their teaching," said Absar.
"We are learning by having fun," said Joachim.
The students also figure out how many gallons of water it will take to fill a classroom and how many books would fill a locker? And they'll find out more fun facts about handley high school's history.
