Does Math Make Sense?

The fact is, teaching and learning looks much different than 20 or 30 years ago. Have you ever tried helping your child with a math problem at home and your child says, “That isn’t how my teacher taught me!” This can sometimes be frustrating as parents, which is why it is that much more important for you to stay up to date with the way children learn math. We’d like to invite you this Tuesday evening October 22nd to North Broadway at 6:30 for a special presentation in our library. Our first grade teachers have teamed with our PTA to demonstrate how the new Common Core Standards are changing the way we think about and understand math. We’d like to help you discover new strategies on how to solve math problems with your children and reduce any frustration you may have with your child's homework. I am confident this opportunity will add value to your child’s academic success. Everyone can benefit and is welcome to attend. Make math make sense.
