2.7 Math Night
Thursday, February 7, 2019
Event start: Louis and Jeri’s Room
Please RSVP so we can prepare materials and sessions appropriately for the number of attendees expected at this event.
Using the lens of algebraic thinking, the evening’s program will start with an introduction in Louis and Jeri’s classroom at 6:30 pm. Then rotating through various classrooms in small groups, our teachers will lead you through a series of explanations and activities that showcase Miquon’s math program from Nursery through sixth grade.
Our program will provide:
- an explanation about how the overall approach to teaching math has changed since we adults were elementary students,
- an overview about what makes Miquon’s math program so special, and
- a chance to work with the materials and activities your kids use every day.
Included will be information about how our curriculum follows National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards throughout Miquon, as well as TERC Investigations in Grades 1-5. It promises to be a fun, interactive night full of all things math! We hope you can join us!
