I wanted to thank the 20+ families that came out on Tuesday night for Chester’s first Family Math Night! It was a huge success and I think everyone went home happy. I’d also like to thank the following students that helped me that evening with some of the games: Aiden and Maya Farrar, Evan Hayes, Everett Mosher, James Birmingham, Ben Hart, Charlie Macko, Meekah and Kagan Hance, Alexis Newsome, Joel Knight, and Hannah Farrar. Thank you Kim Farrar for reading math books to the children while I spoke to the adults.
Look for information for the next Math Night in April. This evening will be for just parents. I will be teaching algorithms or what some people think is “new” math. If your child’s homework is confusing and you just don’t get it please come and learn how and why we teach certain methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Towards the end of May I will hold another Family Math Night that will focus on the importance of basic facts.
