Earn a place on the Brain Boosters Club Hall of Fame... pick something you want to know more about... then do the research, with your parents permission, and bring me a summary of what you learned.  Ten summaries will get you on the Hall of Fame Wall  as a student that goes above and beyond the minimum learning.  On the math sites, print out the certificate and bring it for me to see, then take it home.
