As the Mathematics leader at our school, I facilitated an open evening for parents to learn more about how their children learn maths at our school and how they can help at home. I talked to the parents about real life maths, math progressions, and basic facts learning at home (see my slideshow below). Meanwhile the children were engaged in playing the maths games they play in class; we had areas for each team to share with whānau. Afterwards the parents joined the children in the hall where they learned how to play math games; and lots of prizes were given out. A successful evening with lots of positive feedback from parents and staff.
