October Math Home & School Connection: Making Math Meaningful

[Hidden image]

This year at JAMM we will be having Monthly Family Math Meetings and would like to invite you to come to our next meeting this Wednesday, October 23rd at 6:30PM in the library.   

At the beginning of each month a topic will be introduced. At home, throughout the month, discuss that topic with your child(ren). At the end of the month we will get together and share our math discoveries and discussions!! 

Studies have shown what you say to your child (or in front of your child) about mathematics, matters. If we work together to help your child develop a positive math mindset, their math skills will also improve! One way to do this is by increasing math discussions and awareness in all areas of life. The attached link provides additional examples.   Math skills at home 

October Topic: Measurements 

Our October math topic is "Measurements." Discuss with your students what you measure and how you measure it- ingredients for cooking, items for home projects, etc.   

Contact Mrs. Wargocki (7th and 8th grade math teacher) with any questions wargockic@mhusd.org.
