Everyday Maths video resource launch
Monday, 9 November 2015 from 17:00 to 19:00 (GMT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This session will showcase an innovative way to help parents to engage more with their children’s mathematical learning. The Everyday Maths workshops empower parents to recognise the mathematics they use in everyday life, and to share that with their children.
Everyday family activity is used as a starting point, and parental discussion allows the mathematics in family activity to be revealed and reflected upon.
We will introduce free video and toolkit resources designed to help schools facilitate workshops, and discuss with participants the ways in which schools and parents can engage with each other. Booking is required.
