The Robertson Center Presents: The Real Value of Math Class for Parents Webinar
Across the country, kids are sitting down to math homework and asking their families — often in frustrated tones — the age-old question: Why do I need to learn this? With calculators and smartphones always at the ready, maybe you have also wondered the same thing.
In our Real Value of Math Class Webinar for Parents, we’ll share thoughts about the power and potential of math class in hopes of shifting hearts and minds about the purpose of learning math. We’ll discuss why it’s so important to view math class as a time for kids to do their most creative, original thinking and talk about how authentic engagement with math can set students up for strong thinking and reasoning in life.
As parents and/or guardians, you’ll walk away with some of our favorite tips and tools for supporting and encouraging mathematical thinking at home — and hopefully, start to fall in love with math yourself!
