MANSON MATH NIGHT

LIBRARY  CLASSROOM CLASSROOM 1

 
MANSON FAMILY MATH NIGHT GETS PUZZLED!

On March 8th, 250 participants enjoyed mathematical thinking as a family while working on different puzzles. Puzzles are great for helping young brains to develop and grow. The brain looks for patterns in our world — and puzzles are a true patterning activity. Patterning is also the foundation of reading, math and logic skills. When students do puzzles, they are doing one of the best brain building exercises for developing their reading, math and logic skills. They also develop problem solving skills and individual success and achievement.  In each classroom, high school puzzle experts were available to assist with the different types of puzzles and to help families think about strategies when solving puzzles. In the library Tom Robinson (local math teacher and author) read his children’s book Fibonacci Zoo in English @6:45pm and Addie Velsaco read it in Spanish @7:20pm
