Making Math Meaningful
Our September math topic is "Math at work or in the world." Share with your child the ways you use math in your place of work. This could be things like the following: numbers in accounting, announcing or analyzing scores for a sporting event, calculating production, determining wages, counting produce picked in the field, calculating flight patterns or travel times, sorting and organizing items in the home.
You can also have your child tell you the numbers they see on speed limit signs, calculate the amount of time it will take to get to your destination, find the difference between the posted speed and your actual speed, count the number of white cars in the parking lot, find patterns or symmetry in bathroom tiles, money calculations. I promise you use math daily!
Our September meeting will be on Tuesday, September 17th at 6:30pm in the library.
