Host Your Own Family Math Event This Year!

 

The beginning of a new school year is the best time to get your parents on board with your Common Core based math programs—and hosting a Family Math event is one of the best ways to do this. Yes, it is extra work, but the payoff is HUGE. Parents will better understand the new things you’re trying to do in math classes if you give them an opportunity to experience hands-on, problem-solving based activities with their children right at your school. And those parents will become your advocates for good mathematics for the rest of the year!

 

CMC’s For Families web pages have all the information you need to plan a successful after-school, evening, or Saturday Family Math event—it’s easier than you think! Visit our Family Math Event web pages at:


http://cmc-math.org/for-families/family-math-events/

 

Here you'll find informative articles that tell you everything you need to know to host a wonderful Family Math event:

Don’t put it off for another year; you’ll be glad you hosted a Family Math event.
